    A bit of a strawman, there. I bet even the most ardent antigun people would take serious issue with allowing people to own guns if they underwent the criminal background screening, mental health screening, and weapons qualification training that Secret Service agents are required to undergo.

    Well at least her emotional self is more genuine than Obama's is.....I'll give her that. She can actually say she grew up in the Hood. Obama can't.

    Well she may be doing some of that but make no mistake any talks about guns and gun safety issues.....would be tied into her OM's agenda.

    So taking this money and looking to come up with afterschool activities.....Works how?

    Playing basketball after school, setting up 3 on 3, and re-opening the Midnight Basketball......50 Million. Think that money can be used elsewhere to fight the same problem?

    Re: Michelle Obama Heads To Chicago For Youth Gun Violence Discussion.....

    Funny, while she goes to discuss taking guns away, she and her children are surrounded by men/women with guns who protect them. Guns are apparently evil to the Obamas unless of course they are being used to protect the Obamas.

    The source of the problem in these areas is not a mystery. If the parents want to know how it comes to be and the causes of it, they should look in a mirror instead of looking to get rid of guns.

    These areas have a lot in common no matter what state they are in.

    They are all Overwhelmingly:

    Liberal socialist.

    Entitlement attitudes instead of self-empowering attitudes that take advantage of opportunities.

    Government reliant instead of self-reliant.

    Always wants to know why someone doesn't do something but never realize that when they look in a mirror, there is someone looking back at them from the mirror who can do something.

    Composed of minority groups that are uncooperative with police because too many of "X" race go to prison instead of college. I guess they find it comforting that their young children are dying just so another member of race "X" doesn't die by another races hands or go to prison.

    Are anti-gun. Instead of arming and training themselves, banding together and fighting back, they want an impossibility to occur.

    It is no mystery to some of us that it is a growing problem. As more people embrace the Liberal's socialist mindset and enslave themselves instead of empowering themselves, the problem grows and spreads. It's not "rocket surgery" that the two go hand-in-hand.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    Well, she was looking for Emotional appeal while drumming up the money and some way to help Emanuel. Trying to Identify herself and this little girl being the same is off the mark too. Also She said the Community raised her. Which is a crock of ****!

    I don't think it matters much where she goes or what she says. The conservatives will have a complaint.

    Of course...she could push a child out of the way of oncoming traffic and she was just hamming it up for reporters in order to win popular support to push through her husbands socialist agenda.

    Some people miss the point so hard that they're in the wrong time zone.
