Now That Weather Has Cleared, Clinton Heads North

(CBS)
From CBS News' Fernando Suarez:

DE PERE, WIS. -- After bad weather kept Hillary Clinton from campaigning in parts north of Milwaukee, she finally made her way to the Green Bay area where, at a campaign rally, Clinton answered questions on a variety of issues including gun control and gay rights.

Clinton spoke at St. Norbert College to a crowd of 1,000 and did not veer far from her well rehearsed stump speech.

During the question-and-answer session, a woman asked what Clinton would do to keep students safe on college campuses, given the recent tragedies at Northern Illinois University and Virginia Tech.

"I believe we should really have a summit where everybody comes together - all sides of this issue. And let's figure out how we can be consistent with the Second Amendment – which I whole heartedly support – and do more to keep people safe, I think we can do that," Clinton said.

Although Clinton's position on gun control has remained consistent throught the campaign, this is the first time she has advocated for a summit. Who exactly would participate and how it would work remains to be seen.

Clinton was also asked about her position on gay rights. Clinton, who has long supported gay rights, said she supports civil unions between gay couples. She went a step further and said the military's policy of "don't ask, don't tell" should be reexamined.

"I believe in what Barry Goldwater said, 'you don't have to be straight to shoot straight,'" Clinton said to loud applause.

One gentleman stood up to ask a question and was donning a famous Wisconsin "cheese head" hat and told Clinton that he wore it to get her attention.

Clinton said, "Oh, I love cheese heads I just got a button which says 'Cheese Heads for Clinton' It's a prized possession now!"
