Speaker Pelosi Hints at Compromise on Semi-auto Ban

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi appeared on Good Morning America Tuesday morning (April 7th). The topic of the Pittsburgh shooting came up. After mentioning "53 people have been killed between March 10th and April 5th" by gun violence, she said we "have to have answers to this and a level of compromise." She called the D.C. gun rights amendment on the D.C. Voting Rights bill "draconian". She also admitted the ball is in Congress' "court" to renew the "assault weapons" ban.

Sounds like her comment immediately following Attorney General Eric Holder's call for a renewal of the semi-auto ban were just words masking her true intent.

Hat tip to VA-Alert.

Update: Seattle Gun Examiner Dave Workman adds this about the segment:

Responding to a question from ABC’s Robin Roberts, Pelosi said that while Congress apparently does not want to take anyone’s guns away, “We want them registered.”

I'm confused about something:

What "compromise" did she offer?

According to my dictionary, a compromise involves both sides giving something in order for both sides to receive something.

What are the proffered concessions from their side? What are are gun owners going to get out of her "compromise" plan?

Exactly - Compromise to these guys mean you give up something and I get what I want.
