Dem “Sit-In” Spurs Unexpected Action

posted on June 24, 2016

The toddler-like “sit-in” yesterday by Democrat representatives in the U.S. Congress—who apparently don’t like the way politics work when they are in the minority—was inspired to spur action. And, ironically, it did.

According to a report in The Hill, Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said yesterday that he plans to go out and buy a new gun after the Democrats staged the rule-breaking fiasco.

“I’ve had it with the gun grabbing Democrats and their sit in anti 2nd amendment Jihad,” King tweeted early Thursday morning. “I'm going to go home and buy a new gun.” 

That’s probably not what the Democrat legislators had in mind when staging their embarrassing prank, but it is action. They should be proud.
