House GOP Caves on Gun Vote

“A week after Democrats staged a nearly 26-hour sit-in demanding a vote on gun control measures, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) said the House will vote next week on legislation to block suspected terrorists from buying guns,” The Hill reports.

“Democrats launched an historic, daylong protest on the House floor last week demanding a vote on such legislation in the wake of the Orlando shooting rampage that killed 49… Ryan has dismissed the sit-in as a ‘publicity stunt’ and said Republicans will be ready for the next one.”
