Hillary Clinton thinks a gun buyback program is worth considering. That popping sound you hear are Ammosexual heads exploding all over the country.

It's "worth considering" whether the United States should emulate Australia by instituting a national gun buyback program, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Friday at a town hall in New Hampshire.
A man in the audience asked Clinton whether she thought it would be possible for the U.S. to enact such a program, and if not, why. Gun buybacks have happened at the metropolitan level in the U.S., but any effort at the national level would be sure to run into intense political opposition.
Clinton, for her part, seemed open to the idea.
"Australia is a good example, Canada is a good example, the U.K. is a good example. Why? Because each of them have had mass killings" she said. "Australia had a huge mass killing about 20, 25 years ago, Canada did as well, so did the U.K. And, in reaction, they passed much stricter gun laws."
Damn Hillary is really throwing down on this gun issue, and I could not be more pleased.
Clearly she has decided that the NRA is going to go after her anyway, and that their members will never vote for her, so she is going to make sure they have a reason to dislike her.
Just for me personally that fact that she is taking such politically risky positions on guns, is making me like more all the time.
