First lady Michelle Obama said school-aged children in Chicago live in daily fear of dying or being killed by gun violence, so lawmakers have an “obligation to these kids” to continue pushing for gun control.

The first lady will appear tomorrow in an interview on “CBS Sunday Morning,” the Hill reported.

In the interview, she recalled her visit to hometown Chicago last month where she spoke about youth violence on the eve of the Senate vote on gun control.

She said high school children told her, “every day they wake up and wonder whether they’re going to make it out of school alive.”

“I mean, every single kid worries about their own death, or the death of someone, every single day,” Obama said in the interview, the article said.

According to the Hill, the first lady said:

We have millions of kids living in these kinds of circumstances who are doing everything right. And we, as a nation, have to embrace these kids and let them know that we hear them, and see them. One kid told me he felt like he lived in a cage, because he feels like his community is unseen, unheard and nobody cares about it.

President Obama spoke in Mexico Friday also expressing his determination to try again on gun control.

The Hill reported Obama said:

[A]s I’ve said in the United States, I will continue to do everything in my power to pass common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people. That can save lives here in Mexico and back home in the United States. It’s the right thing to do.

More from the Hill.

    Hows about enforcing laws against the CRIMINALS WITH GUNS instead of twarting the rights of law abiding citizens, Ms. First Lady?

      We see eye to eye on this issue+how does Michelle Obama know what every child in America feel?

      She can't be all over this huge country of ours.

      How dare she think that she can think for all.

      Not everybody is as anti-gun as Michelle&husband.Liz

        You are pitiable. As most Americans.

      • Audrey Cutler

        Ever baby in every womb feels threaten by death in a cruel an unusually way.

        And More babies are murdered each year by abortionists than most guns will kill children in a decade or decades.

        Obama and Michelle approve and abet the cruel and unusually murder of innocent babies but they claim to care about other children. Simply said they are liars and hypocrites that are only trying to achieve their agenda of disarming all American citizens

          Fetus feels threatened? R U Serious? Obamacare covers mental illness….

          • DougC

            Yes, the unborn can feel physical pain while they are either being dismembered or injected with a fluid that eats their flesh away until death occurs. And yes, while experiencing this pain, they do feel threatened and do their best to move away from it. Your use of the word "fetus" doesn't change that fact.

    • Is Dis Chick for Rea

      I can't believe this chick. First she says she's a "single mother," then boasts that she knows what every child in Chicago is afraid of most. Is this administration just a large troll campaign, or does this crazy really believe the spaghetti she's spewing? I say kick these two to the curb. Who elected Obummer, anyhow?

      that is a start then take all the illegals back to their home state mexico

  • Roy

    So I'm guessing that every single kid is just as much a line of bull thatvher hubby the Chicago Con gave when he said that 90% of Americans want it this way.Where do these 2 Morons get their numbers form a dream or something,because I know some kids that don't worry and that would shoot down the Getto Ho's theory or lie which ever you prefer.

    • Kenneth Clark

      I can believe where the kiddos in Chicago would possibly feel that way. I mean, heck, its where little Missy and her Hubby fought long and hard to get control of the guns from law abiding citizens and THIS IS THE RESULT!

    • Gladys Whipple Hurti

      I stopped by Gosnell's old stomping grounds, and every single unborn baby I met told me they worried about being snipped to death every single day. We owe it to them to clean up the abortion industry (by eliminating the abortion mills completely). When is Michelle going to pick up that torch?

      • Steven

        Yea what about all those kids that do not get the chance to feel anything because you are behind making sure they are never going feel being scared happy or are any other feelings because they are dead, dead, and DEAD! ….. if it saves just one kid….right!!!!!! As long as you are killing them it's ok. And Your husband how and where do you keep his Nobel-Prize for PEACE Come On!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Old Chicago

    Bee Och needs to keep her mouth shut and have those crooked cowards on the Chicago PD clean up the ghetto's!

    Get the guns away from the criminals, oh wait…they have more Rights than the law abiding citizens.

  • Michelle Blease

    You mean in Chicago? Their hometown? Strictest gun laws but worse crime in nation? Do they realize how oxymoronic nd hypocritical they are? Oh…by the way, Mooch…my kids don't worry about it at all…at least not in my house because they are well versed in gun safety and for what they are supposed to be used. Now if their gang banging, Obama loving, welfare receiving aunt comes to visit….

    • Old Chicago

      You tell it sister!

  • Still Stacy

    So if restrictive limitations are placed on the Second Amendment, and it increases the number of shootings . . . then logic would dictate that not having these restrictions would reduce the number of shootings. I know, I know. Crazy talk.


    TO Michelle each about to be aborted baby prays, please God if I survive a botched abortion please don't let them snip my spinal cord or leave me to die from starvation and God forgive them for,they know not what they are doing Amen.

    How can you continue to press for more gun control to "save the children" of Chicago, when the city already has the strictest gun laws in the nation? The only step left is to disarm the police!

    Michelle Obama is a complete moron if she thinks that criminals intent on shooting someone are going to obey any gun laws whatsoever; that's what makes them criminals. More laws are not going to solve anything, in fact they will only make things worse. It is an incontrovertible fact that gun violence is directly, and inversely, proportional to legal gun ownership; anyone who says different is a liar.

    If she wants to do something to "save the children," she needs to get her community organizer husband together with the other black leaders in Chicago and do something to change the cultural wasteland that the Windy City has become.

    I'm not going to go off on what I think is wrong with the black community/culture in Chicago, Detroit, New York, or anywhere else; as a white person I would immediately be deemed a hateful racist even though I have lived my entire life with Dr. King as a personal hero and named my first-born child after a black man.

    I would, however, point to the example of Dr. Ben Carson, and especially his mother who insisted that he put school work ahead of everything else and worked three jobs to support the family. I'm sure that her fine parenting skills had quite a bit to do with Dr. Carson's development, and that is one major thing I see lacking in the black community today.

    If the kids in Chicago are afraid that they might get shot every single day, maybe it's time that Rahm Emanuel cracks down on the source of nearly ALL of the murders that frighten them: black gangs.

    But to even mention that these black children are being gunned down by black drug dealers would be "racist" wouldn't it?

    She must think people are as stupid as her husband. Chicago is run by a gangster mayor who used to work for Bill Clinton. They have too much gun control, what they do not have is CRIME control. But what do you expect from bleeding heart liberals who blame society for everything instead of the criminals. She's an idiot and so are the people that voted for Obama.
