As I write this, House Democrats are staging a sit in right in the House of Representatives and because House Republicans have not passed gun control legislation in the wake of the Orlando Shootings and amid reports that the killer was on the FBI Terrorist Watch List, yet was able to buy powerful weapons.
Representative John Lewis led the sit in that started today, and is still going on as of 11:37 PM EST. What was not covered by traditional media has been seen on social media, with Periscope leading the way.
