House GOP aiming to prevent another Democratic sit-in

Democratic protest in the People's House will not be tolerated!

House Republicans are aiming to ensure there's no repeat of a Democratic sit-in last summer over gun control.

GOP leaders are planning a vote on a set of rules changes when Congress convenes in January that includes fines for members who use electronic devices to take pictures or video from the House floor.

"House Republicans continue to act as the handmaidens of the gun lobby refusing to pass sensible, bipartisan legislation to expand background checks and keep guns out of the hands of terrorists," said spokesman Drew Hammill.

The proposed rules would also clarify that members or employees of the House cannot engage in "disorderly or disruptive conduct" by intentionally blocking another member from moving in the chamber, or using an exhibit or other means to disturb legislative proceedings.

1. Democrats need to have a sit-in to protest this bullshit.

The authoritarian world view of the republican party becomes clearer for all to see with each passing day. These are people who do not believe in democracy. It is the job of democrats to show them what democracy looks like.
