Pelosi on Gun Control: 'We're just not taking no for an answer'

During her Thursday press conference, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that Wednesday's sweeping gun control defeat in the Democrat-controlled  Senate is a setback, but not the end, of Democrats' gun control efforts. During Senate action Wednesday, nine gun control measures came up for votes, and all nine were defeated. Sen. Dianne Feinstein's "assault" weapons ban went down in flames, with 15 Democrats voting with Republicans to kill it. It fell in a lopsided 60-40 vote.

Going O for 9 is but a fleshwound, says Pelosi:

“The process on where to go from here is we will be collecting any bipartisan sign up as co-sponsors of the bill, which is already bipartisan… What we want also is a vote [in the House],” Pelosi said. The American people can say to the leadership in Congress to Speaker Boehner, ‘Give us a vote.’ As you can see, we’re just not taking no for an answer.”

She means it. Pelosi is a very determined ideologue. The last time Democrats refused to take no as an answer, they passed ObamaCare against the wishes of the majority of Americans. That law is wreaking havoc on the US economy and healthcare system, and it isn't even fully implemented yet.
