Democrats end sit-in on gun control

by
June 23, 2016

Democrats ended their sit-in on the House floor shortly after 1 p.m. on Thursday afternoon, after more than 24 hours of stalling proceedings to call for action on gun-control legislation.

Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) spoke while surrounded by his Democratic colleagues to close the protest, which lasted through the night after beginning shortly after 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.

“We must come back on July 5 more determined than ever before,” Lewis declared in anticipation of the House’s return date after the Independence Day recess.

Democrats planned to hold a rally on the Capitol steps after ending the sit-in, but what their next move is remains unclear.

    Nanny Pelosi and the Demoncrats had complete control of all 3 branches of the Government for 2 years, and control of Congress for 2 additional years under Bush, yet never found the time for this legislation. They were too busy using bribery, libel and lies to get Obamacare through. Rep Lewis has been in Congress for decades, has he ever put forth a gun control bill before, especially when they ruled both houses, the White House and the USSC? Much as I hate to agree with Paul Ryan, this is nothing but a publicity stunt. I wonder if they were stomping their feet and crying while sitting on the floor like the spoiled brats they are showing them selves to be.

    The Capital Park Service said it will take only 2 days to pick up all the the trash, chicken bones and watermelon seeds.

    The Democrats need to realize that some day they will be the majority party in the House. They should have no problem if the Republicans throw a similar temper tantrum when they don’t get their way.

    The Democrats’ action was nothing more than a publicity stunt. It made them look like the uncivilized people they are.

    Speaker Ryan needs to have a plan for July 5. My suggestion would be that if they try this stunt again that he have the protestors arrested and removed from the Capitol. The Democrats in Washington have worked tirelessly to destroy our country. The Republican party should work to see that each of these scumbags lose in November.

  • joe

    Gee, what a bunch of pansies. They got their sit-in idea either because they are old enough to have participated in some of the sit-ins and other protests of the 60s or they read about those rallies somewhere.
    Either way, they totally lack the commitment that _we_ had in our fight against the illegal war in Viet Nam.
    The Democrats are nothing but an embarrassment to themselves and to _true_ liberals everywhere.

  • used_to_be_a_liberal

    Oh, so these 1960’s throw backs, ended their sit in, took their pacifiers and blankies and went home, must be a party on the weekend that they don’t want to miss

            smarter then you are left-wit

  • SDofAZ

    Contact your representatives and senators while they are on this break. Get in their faces and challenge them to explain how restricting your right to defend yourself is gonna stop the jihadist or the criminals. This is crazy and we must get on top of them in every way to stop their attempt to make ALL of us victims to the moslime invaders, the criminals or the just plain crazy nuts. Nothing to do with restricting our rights is gonna prevent the jihadist, the criminals or the nuts from stabbing, shooting, bludgeoning of those unable to defend themselves. Stop the dems and rinos from their NWO agenda and backing this arrogant narcissistic sociopath’s agenda to put us all where EU is now, unarmed! And as the crusades of the middle ages are brought to life in our generation are we gonna let these idiots disarm us while the moslimes ramp up their attrocities? NOT!!!!

    • BILL3000

      Are moslimes similar to Key Limes?

  • GATORLAND

    Seems to me like two year olds throwing temper tantrums when they want their way and did not succeed. Our tax payers money at work, So sad they are not mature enough to try debates, express their opinions and listen to other views on gun control, These Juveniles ran for office to speak for their constituents?????? I will wager the MSM will praise their brave actions!!!!

    • BILL3000

      Probably Some in the Mainstream Media will will Praise their Heroic Actions,as will ALL Sane People of Good Sense/Good Heart,but NOT the so-called “Patriots”[Treacherous Traitors],or Believers in Paranoia for American Fascists Media,such as Barber,Beck,Breitbart,1776 Coalition,Fix This Nation,Heritage,C.N.S,W,N.D. and Other Heirs of Dr. Josef Goebbels.
