First Lady to visit violence-plagued Chicago high school

First lady Michelle Obama has chosen Harper High School as one of her stops on her visit to Chicago today; and gun control will be foremost on her mind.

In just the past year, eight Harper students have been shot to death, 21 others injured; Mrs. Obama plans to meet privately with a small group of students and counselors to hear their stories.

The first lady will also be the featured speaker at a luncheon at the Hilton Chicago hosted by Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

The mayor is trying to raise $50 million to expand city programs for at-risk children.

    The big crime here is exploiting the tragedy and victims of senseless crimes for the purposes of pushing forward a political objective. Any law passed will do nothing to prevent the tragedies that have occurred. I feel sorry for the victims that are being played.

    More tax payer dollars spent for a futile attemp to curb gang violence. I wonder how much the taxpayers will be charged for footing this needless trip!

    I think this administration ought to spend lavishly, inventing a magic wand that can be waived over all these 'at risk' chillen, making the ghetto a safe place to live.
