Pelosi refuses to back down.

In a surprising turn of events, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told a large group of people during her visit to her hometown of San Francisco that the lower chamber is now going to bring forward new legislation to ban “assault weapons”.

According to Newsmax, Pelosi said they are working on a bill that will specifically target certain types of rifles to prevent potentially violent people from committing horrific acts.

During her statement, Pelosi stated, “And then, as we get through those, we will be having a hearing and marking up the assault weapon ban. So, we just are trying to hit it every possible way.”

This news comes after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a “freeze” on Canadian peoples ability to ”buy, sell, transfer or import handguns anywhere” in Canada.

It is currently unclear as to exactly what weapons Democrats will try to ban however it is safe to say that that handguns will likely not be banned in the United States due to a very clear Second Amendment that the Supreme Court will stand in favor of.
