The Democratic members of the House of Representatives are using a Civil Rights-era protest method to combat legislative inaction on gun control: the sit-in.
Right before the Republicans went into recess, the Democrats tried to force a vote on a gun control measure to no avail. They are now sitting on the House floor in protest.
C-SPAN cameras are turned off because of the forced recess, so Democrats and others in attendance are posting pictures and updates on social media.
