Pelosi pledges compromise on assault weapons banGot that, boys and girls...registration and prohibitions on transporting some firearms across state lines? If the Dems thought a new AWB was going to be a s&%tstorm of epic proportions, wait until they wade into registration and bans on transportation of firearms.
The ball is in Congress's court to craft a compromise in reinstating regulations on assault weapons, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) acknowledged Tuesday.
During an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America," Pelosi said that the Congress will work to find some middle ground between the previous ban, which expired in 2004, and the precedent laid by the Supreme Court in a ruling enumerating more concrete gunowners' rights last term.
"We have to find some level of compromise," Pelosi said, citing 53 victims of gun violence nationwide in less than a month. "And we have to rid the debate of the misconceptions people have about what gun safety means."
"Yes, it is," the Speaker said when asked if the ball is in Congress's court now that Democrats control the White House. "And we are just going to have to work together to come to some resolution."
Pelosi indicated that new regulations might entail registration and prohibitions on transporting some firearms across state lines.
Any doubts now as to what the leaders of the Democratic Party really want to do? The "compromise" Pelosi is talking about would lay the groundwork for door-to-door confiscations, which has been the end game all along.
