The House has left Washington for its July Fourth recess, but Democrats have no intention of relenting in their push for tougher gun laws.

Energized by their recent takeover of the House floor, the Democrats are eying a series of tactics and events for members to bring to their home districts through the break, including a "national day of action" designed to remind voters that Republicans have refused to bring the issue on the floor.

In a letter sent to all Democrats on Friday, the organizers behind the sit-in urged their colleagues to "build the momentum" created by the protest, in hopes of forcing the Republicans' hands by dint of public pressure. 

"Our sit-in showed that the Republican Leadership can no longer ignore the epidemic of gun violence," the Democrats wrote. "A movement was born and will only continue to grow."

The letter was signed by Reps. John Lewis (Ga.), John Larson (Conn.), Katherine Clark (Mass.), David Cicilline (R.I.), Robin Kelly (Ill.) and Mike Thompson (Calif.). 

Their suggested day of action: June 29.

Their suggested tactic: almost anything.

"Whether it [is] a press conference, roundtable, or telephone town hall, we encourage you [to] host an event showing that Democrats in Congress will keep up the fight against gun violence," the lawmakers wrote. "Local partners including survivors, law enforcement and faith leaders can be excellent partners and can help carry our message even further."

Any one that signs on to this action is a fool and needs to be removed for taking a oath to protect the Constitution. Outside of lying there close to treason. Action needs to betaken that's for sure. We have got to be strong and vote to protect our Constitution or the Muslims will soon control our country and our laws will mean nothing. Besides this clown looks like the Devil! Maryland should wake up and remove the evil from state leadership. Congressman Cummings should be goings.

The Devil is that fugly?

No wonder he is in a foul mood. LOL

What they are hiding..., is the true reason for this action. In reality this day of action should be called..., "destroy the idea of having a constitution day." This is the Globalist N.W.O. "banker/godfather world owners..., screaming in your face..., we own you..., quit resisting!!! YOU ARE ONLY MEMBERS OF OUR "HERD"..., SO SETTLE DOWN..., AND WE WILL SING A NEW SONG FOR YOU!!! Quit rebelling..., like the British did..., with their stupid vote..., It will do you no good..., remember..., WE OWN YOU!!!................................As for me..., that is a LIE..., I WILL NOT ACCEPT.!!!!

With ya!

Guess they're going to arrange the murders of more Americans.

This is tiring....you jokers (congress) need to discuss how to address terrorism and mental illness, not how to grab citizens property or infringe on their constitutional rights. We'd be better off with a maximum age limit for members of congress.....14! I swear that we'd be better off with elementary and middleschoolers at the helm.

"This is tiring....you jokers (congress) need to discuss how to address terrorism and mental illness, not how to grab citizens property or infringe on their constitutional rights."

Perhaps Progressives themselves are afraid of falling under the magnifying glass as Obsessive-Compulsives?

Perhaps the diagnosis is Hoplophobia?

Some gun-ban reps. do carry guns - Schizophrenia?

Because if the gun-ban rhetoric isn't psychologically irrational, what is?

I'll buy that. 

Perhaps the rest of the US citizens can start a loud - loud noise on why the US congress won;'t stop Obama.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
