Pelosi may fold on Souder bill re DC gun laws
The DCist is reporting that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may allow a vote on Rep. Souder's (spelling corrected) bill. Actually, the report is that she'd have vulnerable blue dog Demos introduce the same or a similar bill, and allow a vote on that.
Here's a more extensive report in The Hill. The bill would strike the ban on semiautomatics, allow residents to buy from FFLs in VA and MD, and (altho this is a bit much to hope for, and may be a reporter's error) end the registration system. The discharge petition filed by Souter (which would discharge it from the committee which is holding it and bring it to the floor) already has 164 signatures, of 218 required.
