Good Grief… Michelle Obama Says Gun Violence Has “Every Single Kid” Worried About Death “Every Single Day”
Oh, good grief.
Last month Michelle Obama teared up while pushing for more gun control legislation.
Michelle Obama told ‘CBS Sunday Morning’ that gun violence has “every single kid worries about their own death every single day.”
The Hill reported:
First lady Michelle Obama said that students at a high school just five miles from her family’s Chicago home told her that “every day they wake up and wonder whether they’re going to make it out of school alive.”
In an interview with “CBS Sunday Morning” that will air this weekend, the first lady said that when she met students after delivering a speech last month on gun violence, she was struck by the extent to which fear dominated the children’s everyday lives.
“I mean, every single kid worries about their own death, or the death of someone, every single day,” Obama said.
The first lady traveled to her hometown to advocate for new gun controls ahead of the Senate’s vote last month on a bill that would expand background checks on gun purchases. The vote fell five senators short of the 60 needed.
And, here we thought all they worried about was global warming.
