CHICAGO (AP) — First lady Michelle Obama is making a deeply personal entrance into the gun debate on the eve of a pivotal vote in Congress.
Mrs. Obama told a conference on youth violence in Chicago on Wednesday that the gun proposals her husband made in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting deserve a vote in Congress. But she says reducing daily gun deaths in places like her hometown also will require a serious and sustained effort by community leaders.
She highlighted the case of a 15-year-old, Hadiya Pendleton, shot to death on the city's South Side shortly after she performed at her husband's inaugural events. Mrs. Obama says she could have been Hadiya, but instead became first lady while the honor student ended up dead from a gunshot wound in the back.
