Story by 89 WLS reporter Bill Cameron
Something Hadiya Pendleton's godfather Damon Stuart said at her funeral last weekend bears repeating as President Obama comes to town, "Please, don't let this turn into a political thing. Keep it personal. A lot of politicians will try to wield gun violence as a sword. They want to use it for votes."
The politicians who gather with President Obama have to be careful to convey the notion that the only votes they want is for gun control, not for themselves.
As for President Obama, he won't be running again.
