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.

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

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
