According to Fox, Michelle Obama expressed her desire for the implementation of more strict gun control laws. She stated that she hoped and prayed that the country would reach a point where enough is enough and take necessary actions to address the issue of gun violence.
“We are the only developed country on the planet where its citizens can have unfettered access to firearms. That is not a good thing,” Obama added.
Michelle Obama urged young people, in particular, to exercise their right to vote and bring about changes in the country’s gun laws.
“More of us have to feel strongly about it. In particularly our young people. This is where democracy comes in. Voting — all of this stuff is decided in the ballot box,” Michelle Obama said.
