WASHINGTON (MEDIA GENERAL)— It’s been a moving day on a building of a House of Representatives. More than 30 House Democrats seized a floor, led by Rep. John Lewis (R-Ga.), perfectionist a vote on gun control legislation.

Legislators began today’s sit-in only before a House pennyless for afternoon recess, walking to a front of a chamber, chanting, “no vote, no break” and “no bill, no break.”

This follows an equally heated week of domestic sermon centered around the deadliest mass sharpened in U.S. history, when self-proclaimed Islamic militant Omar Mateen killed 49 people and injured 53 during a gay nightclub he once busy in Orlando, Fla., on Jun 12.

Rep. Lewis is a veteran personality of a Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, and has represented the fifth district of Georgia, that includes many of Atlanta, given 1987.

C-SPAN feeds were cut almost immediately after a sit-in began, notwithstanding protests from Democratic leaders, a media and endangered citizens. Democratic legislators and C-SPAN have attempted to by-pass this, broadcasting feeds intermittently with Periscope and Facebook Live.

Almost immediately, Rep. Scott Peters of Calif., used his dungeon phone to broadcast video around Periscope. You can watch his feed online here.

In a hours following, renouned Democratic leaders, like Pres. Barack Obama, unreserved Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, Sen. Minority Leader Harry Reid, and Sens. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) have uttered their support for a sit-in on amicable media or assimilated in on a movement themselves.

Republican leaders have been most quieter about a protest, allowing Speaker Paul Ryan to urge their position, job it a ‘publicity stunt’ on CNN. Ryan insists that a C-SPAN blackout is due to long-standing rules in the chamber, claiming video feeds are cut off whenever a legislative physique is technically not in session.

Senate leaders attempted a identical pierce progressing this week, when Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) launched a 15-hour filibuster forward of 4 pieces of gun legislation—two from Democrats, dual from Republicans—that were all struck down by a Republican majority.

Presumptive Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump has nonetheless to criticism publicly on a sit-in.
