After the Senate rejected four gun control proposals in the wake of the country’s worst mass shooting in history, Democrats in the House of Representatives decided to try a different tactic.

They’re protesting.

It all started when Representative John Lewis (above, center), a veteran of the Civil Rights movement in the ’60s, took to the House floor and said:

“Now is the time for us to find a way to dramatize it, to make it real. We have to occupy the floor of the House until there is action.”

Then the House Dems just sat down on the floor. And they’re not moving.

The protest — which is not being televised because the House is not currently in session — is being reported by the Reps themselves, on Twitter:

You can support their protest by tweeting with the hashtag #NoMoreSilence or #NoBillNoBreak and by reaching out to your own representatives.

Do YOU think the sit-in will make a difference??
