Rep. John Lewis Leads Sit-In on House Floor Demanding Gun Control Vote: WATCH

John Lewis

Civil rights icon and Rep. John Lewis staged a sit-in on the house floor today after delivering a searing speech on inaction on gun control.

Said Lewis, before Democrats planted themselves on the House floor:

“We can no longer wait. We can no longer be patient…Sometimes you have to do something out of the ordinary. Sometimes you have to make way out of no way. We have been too quiet for too long. There comes a time when you have to say something, when you have to make a little noise. When you have to move your feet…Now is the time to get in the way. We will be silent no more. The time for silence is over.”
