Democrats Stage “Sit In” to Force Gun Control Measure Review

Democrats staged a “sit in” on the House floor that lasted for 16 hours. The “sit in” is coming to an end on Thursday morning, with the vow to continue the fight for stricter gun control measures following opposition from Republicans.

The Democratic party is fighting for the people of Florida following a mass shooting on June 12 that left 49 people dead in Orlando.

Republicans regained control of the chamber on Thursday, pushed unrelated measures through and announced that no more voting will take place until after the July 4th holiday. John Lewis, a Democrat from Georgia, led the protests and vowed to continue the fight for stricter gun laws.

“We’ve made some progress. We’ve crossed one bridge,” said Lewis.

Lewis vowed to continue the fight for stricter gun laws in July. Gun laws are becoming a major focus point heading into the general election. Republicans are fiercely against gun control measures and denounced the “sit in” after regaining control of the chamber. Republican and Democratic representatives clashed as Republicans charged the floor in a confrontation that nearly ended in handcuffs.

House Speaker Paul Ryan insisted that he will not entertain any bill that will take guns away from their owners.
