Democrats End Sit-In for Gun Control at U.S Capitol

On Thursday, Georgia Representative John Lewis declared victory as he and the other Democrats who staged a revolt in the House of Representatives suspended their more than 25 hour sit-in in the Capitol. While they weren't able to get the Republicans to vote on two controversial gun control bills, Lewis said they got their point across to the American people. House Democrats took over the floor at approximately 11:24 a.m. ET on Wednesday, demanding Republican leadership vote on the gun control bills. They were soon joined by several Democratic Senators and fortified by deliveries of pizza and blankets.
