    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.
    Thanks for the right-wing boilerplate. Feel free to actually comment on youth violence some day.

    Arm themselves and fight back? The solution to violence isn't more violence. She's trying to discuss the causes of violence. And she's right, the circumstances these kids grow up in make it very, very hard to grow up safe and healthy. You can rant and rave about "personal responsibility" and "empowering," but I have another term for what you're doing: plugging your ears and hoping the problem goes away. People grow up in a society, and it takes a society to solve major problems like this. You know what you just interpreted that to mean? "See, libruls want the government to do everything for us!" Sure buddy. Go back to listening to Limbaugh.

    Were you thinking that all youth violence is associated with or to gang activity?
    You are implying that it is a losing battle.

    Michelle Obama Compares Herself to Murdered Teenager in Chicago Speech.....



    Yesterday the First Lady gave a speech in Chicago about guns, obviously her forte. In the speech she compared herself to Hadiya Pendleton who was shot just a week after performing at the inauguration. Mrs. Obama said, “Hadiya Pendleton was me, and I was her”.

    "And as I visited with the Pendleton family at Hadiya’s funeral, I couldn’t get over how familiar they felt to me. Because what I realized was Hadiya’s family was just like my family. Hadiya Pendleton was me, and I was her. But I got to grow up, and go to Princeton and Harvard Law School, and have a career and a family and the most blessed life I could ever imagine.....snip~

    Well, that was already established before the FLOTUS decided to speak on it. Even before she thought of going to Chicago.

    Don't count your chickens before they are hatched. I think there will be some kind of a deal on gun control.

    Why, would you say that. Assualt weapons ban.....lost. Magazine.....lost. Feinstein bill thrown to the Side and a loss.. Now McConnell has stated he will Filibuster any Cloture motion by Reid. The House refuse to look at anything unless it is about the Mental Health issue.....so another Loss.

    Its a great idea that the FLOTUS would help out with some kids afterschool programs.....but do you think rather than give that money to private groups or raise funds thru city and private funds. That they could take that 50 Million and hire some more cops?

    Peace can only be achieved through greater strength and being so good at fighting that none dare challenge you. It cannot be achieved by sitting around eating tofu singing Kum-ba-ya.

    BTW, I am not right wing. It is simple logic that if you want to end the killing, then kill the killers. No more killers, no more killing.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.
