Democrat House members ended their sit-in on June 23 without securing any new gun control or even a vote on gun control.
On Wednesday, Breitbart News reported the sit-in was spearheaded by Representative John Lewis (D-GA-5), with the goal of forcing Republican leadership to allow a vote on gun control.
Lewis wanted Speaker Ryan to “keep the House in session through its planned recess” for the purposes of taking up gun legislation. …
But rather than complying with Democrat requests, CNN reports Republican leadership demanded an end to the sit-in. And a senior leadership aide says the Democrats are now ending it.
