Did House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi admitsay that she hopes banning bump stocks isn't an isolated effort butis a hope to slippery slope for more gun restrictions?

There seems to be a fairly widespread claim that,

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said "I certainly hope" voting on a bill regulating or banning "bump stocks" will be a slippery slope toward further gun restrictions.

Upon being asked if the bill was a slippery slope toward further gun restrictions, she said, "So what? … I certainly hope so." (source)

I'm somewhat skeptical since:

  • theThe claim seems to mostly be on right wing blogs and I wasn't able to find it in any major news outlets or Pelosi's own web page.

  • It's a typical party line for mainline Democrats that they are only looking for specific "sensible" gun control measures and that the slippery slope accusation is merely a paranoia on the part of pro-second-amendment people. Hard to believe someone as highly placed as Pelosi would slip up so much (no pun intended).

Did she admitsay that she hopes that this proposed ban is a slippery slope to further gun restrictions?
