Following the sick horror of the bloodbath in Sandy Hooks Elementary in Connecticut, the liberals have been bringing out their dismaying talking points. The latest includes Democrat Senator Diane Feinstein proposing a buyback of guns

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said that she and other gun control advocates are considering a law that would create a program to purchase weapons from gun owners, a proposal that could be compulsory.
“We are also looking at a buy-back program,” Feinstein said today in a press conference. “Now, again, this is a work in progress so these are ideas in the development.”
Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y., already discussed the possibility of a buy-back law for his state, but he made clear it would be a forced buyback.
“Confiscation could be an option,” Cuomo told The New York Times yesterday when discussing semiautomatic weapons. “Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option — keep your gun but permit it.”
I think it's a foregone conclusion that the only people they're trying to get the guns back from is law-abiders. There is no chance that any criminals would do it, even for money. Not that criminals deserve money, of course. Which is why this "consideration" is only bound to fail horribly.
