House Democrats Stage Sit-in on House Floor Over Gun Control Laws:
LIVE with NewsJustIn at Natswritings.com
Listen to Georgia’s Congressman John Lewis impassioned speech with fellow Democrats staging and representing a House floor Sit-In over gun control laws. “No Bill, No Break!” Congress Members: “I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired!”
“Sometimes you have to do something out of the ordinary, sometimes you have to make a way out of no way,” said Lewis, one of the last living icons of civil disobedience during the civil rights movement. “There comes a time when you have to say something, when you have to make a little noise, when you have to move your feet. This is the time. Now is the time to get in the way. The time to act is now. We will be silent no more.”
If members do not leave the floor and no compromise is reached, it is largely up to Speaker Paul Ryan to decide whether to use the authority of the House to seek to clear the floor and/or sanction members, or to keep the House in recess and wait out the issue.
