    Just curious, and I think I'm safe to post this here.

    Anybody following the House sit-in today? They cut-off coverage on Cspan so they started feeding it on Periscope. Just amazing, but that's what 27 million $ from the NRA buys. A no vote.

    Go NRA!

    What's the topic? Why did CSPAN cut coverage?

    I'm a proud gun owner who is not amused by the NRA.

    House Democrats with a few Republicans are protesting the No votes on the 4 gun control bills introduced that were voted down after Orlando. They have started a sit-in in the House. Cspan didn't stop coverage, but a Republican adjourned the House, therefore Cspan coverage stops. So, it is continuing on Periscope.

    Not a fan of the way most politicians use tragedy to further their agenda before the bodies are even cold.

    Whatever stupid laws they're trying to pass now wouldn't have prevented this and won't prevent another one.

    It will just serve to further usurp the freedoms of law abiding citizens.

    Aren't there something like 1000 federal firearms regulations and statues, and some 20,000 enactments at all levels nationwide? One more law is not going to stop the mayhem and one more is not going to unfairly infringe upon anyone's so-called rights. We are an extremely violent nation and when it comes to matters of reason and reality, a very ignorant nation.

    C'mon, I think the no fly list is a little silly, but you think somebody on that list should be able to legally buy a gun with no further investigation. I don't.
