Are you guys following the sit in on the House floor? Incredible and moving, though the republicans have kicked CSPAN out. Some of the democrats have been sneaking out pics.

The hashtag is #NoBillNoBreak.

GOOD. About damn time they actually did something. Rep Lewis's start of the sit-it (on CNN) is incredible.

Yes, his speech was terrific but even more to me just to see him, an icon of the Civil Rights movement, at his age, sitting on the House floor with others.

I was glad that Ben Cardin from MD was out there on the floor.

I was pleased to see that my Republican Rep (Jolly) is part of the sit-in, and Sen Nelson joined for support. But seriously, how ridiculous is it that our elected "representatives" have to go to these measures to try to get a real vote and get some real change to happen? I'm so over this whole session of people blocking progress simply due to party lines.

The Reveal podcast from the Center for Investigative Reporting did an amazing piece on Orlando and gun control.

Jolly often surprises me. He seems to have no issue with going against the Republican mainstream.

Tammy Duckworth hid her phone in her prosthetic leg so it could not be taken away...

Please don't minimize John Lewis' role and his courage. (Not the only mention of this sort of thing on Twitter.)

They are singing "We Shall Overcome" on the floor of the House.
