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."

they all graduate from Faber college - fraternity was DeltaTauChi

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.

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

Florida Sheriff — “I Will Not Enforce Assault Weapons Ban, Neither Will Most Sheriffs”

Dennis Lemma, who is the Sheriff in Central Florida’s Seminole County, told a group of 2nd Amendment activists recently that he would not enforce an assault weapons ban that could soon become Florida law if the “Ban Assault Weapons Now” amendment passes in the Sunshine State.

According to News965, the ban has the following specifications.

The amendment proposed in the state legislature would ban possession of assault weapons, which are defined as “semiautomatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”

Lemma, an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a first term sheriff who is running for re-election, said this about whether or not he would enforce such a law.

“It’s not only that I wouldn’t, the majority of sheriffs across the state would not do it,” Lemma said in the video. It’s up to the sheriffs what they are willing to enforce.”
