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. Dozens of leaders and senior party members spilled out of a whip meeting on Thursday afternoon saying they intend to press for gun reform votes, but there did not seem to be a definitive plan for doing so. Rep. Xavier Becerra (Calif.), chairman of the caucus, said Democrats will continue the push "in whatever way we can — here [and] back home in our districts." "We're going to do everything we can to try to get a vote," he said. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Thursday dismissed the sit-in as "a political stunt" and "a fundraising scheme" designed to churn up campaign cash for Democrats during a high-stakes election year. "If this is not a political stunt, then why are they trying to raise money off of this — off of a tragedy?" he asked reporters during a press briefing in the Capitol. One thing I'm trying to get at here is has Paul Ryan changed his heart? Anyways the thing is right after he mentioned the Democrats sitting in at the house for gun control as a fundraising campaign, boy oh boy did they end the sit in right after those comments from Ryan. Has the push for gun control by Democrats finally make Paul Ryan realize these people are nothing but vultures on are Constitutional rights to carry guns on our person?
