He's also apparently seeking political suicide, and a swift kick in the ass by the hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of black rifle owners in America.

someone find the link where Pelosi said that it wasn't gonna happen because no one wanted to take it up. It came out literally minutes after this came out.

Here is the article called...

Pelosi throws cold water on weapons ban

"House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tossed cold water on the prospect of reinstating the assault weapons ban, highlighting Democrats’ reluctance to take on gun issues.

Attorney General Eric Holder raised the prospect Wednesday that the administration would push to bring back the ban. But Pelosi (D-Calif.) indicated on Thursday that he never talked to her. The Speaker gave a flat “no” when asked if she had talked to administration officials about the ban.


“On that score, I think we need to enforce the laws we have right now,” Pelosi said at her weekly news conference. “I think it's clear the Bush administration didn’t do that.”"
