Pelosi wants registration

Not that the national news will ever cover it, but it seems that the Speaker of the House wants gun registration.
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.
That paragraph sets the tone, and of course, she's talking about compromise.
"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."
She wants to know what gun safety means? How about The Four Rules, promulgated by Jeff Cooper. Or, the rules promulgated by the NRA. That's what gun safety is all about, Nancy.

No, she wants more. She'd settle for a total ban if she could get it, but her idea of compromise is registration.
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.
She wants to regulate guns and prohibit moving guns across state lines. She didn't say handguns, nor semi-automatic guns. She said guns. All guns.

I've got a compromise for you, Nancy. NO! Just no. Not now, not ever. Not in my lifetime, or the lifetime of my grandchildren. We've compromised all we intend to compromise.

Remember one fact: Nancy Pelosi speaks for the Democrats in San Fransico, not the Democrats in Central Louisiana.

She just doesn't realize that it is exactly this attitude of Dems against guns that has caused the recent surge in background checks and gun buying. If she didn't have such a rabid hatred of guns, there would be less guns on the street.

I for one think this would be a great idea, no - wait, I thought you said Pelosi wanted Resignation.

Oh, well my mistake, it was a good thought while it lasted.
