WASHINGTON (AP) - The House session is over, but Democrats were still on Capitol Hill this morning, protesting the failure of lawmakers to pass gun control legislation.
Their sit-in began around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, and Democratic lawmakers were still addressing their colleagues after 6 a.m., saying, they'll continue to make their case for gun legislation.
House Speaker Paul Ryan called the sit-in a gimmick. Democratic Congressman John Lewis says, "it's not a gimmick for me."
