When asked about government gun buy back measures, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar compared gun control measures to gay marriage.

“I look at these proposals and I say does this hurt my Uncle Dick and his deer stand coming from a proud hunting and fishing state? These proposals don't do that,” Klobuchar said at Wednesday Democratic Presidential debate.

“When I was a prosecutor, I supported the assault weapon ban. When I was in the senate, I saw those moms from Sandy Hook come and try to advocate for change and we all failed - and then now these Parkland kids from Florida, they started a literally a national shift. You know why? It's just like with gay marriage. When kids talk to their parents and their grandparents, they say, I don't understand why we can't put these sensible things in place, they listen. If we get bested by a bunch of 17-year-olds it's the best thing that could ever happen.”
