First Lady pushes to stop gun violence

CHICAGO -- The First Lady was in Chicago this week pushing to stop gun violence.

The First Lady sat down with students at Harper High School.

That school alone has had 29 current and former students shot over the past year.

"What it takes to build strong, successful young people isn't genetics or pedigree or good luck. It's opportunity," said Michelle Obama.

Political analysts say her involvement in politics could be risky.

Democrats are now trying to pull out all the stops, hoping to get new gun legislation passed.
