More on the fight over the Federal DC legislation
Politics can be confusing. Story here. Basically, the House committee is expected to report out a much watered-down version, but the rule for debate (fixed by Rules Committee, directly under Pelosi's thumb) allows a quick up or down vote between that and the stronger version (which, with nearly half the House cosponsoring, will likely win).
If that's accurate, Pelosi is giving the antigunners at most a chance of save face before being defeated. (Cue in Twilight Zone theme here).
