House Democrats throw temper tantrum over gun control

tantrumCall it the “Waaaaaahhhh Caucus.”  On Wednesday, a gaggle of House Democrats decided that the best way to get what they want is to throw a collective temper tantrum on the floor of the House of Representatives.  What do they want?  Gun control.  And when do they want it? Nooooooowwwwwwww.

Buzzfeed reported:

Civil rights activist Rep. John Lewis of Georgia led the group of Democrats in sitting on the chamber floor.

“We have turned deaf ears to the blood of the innocent and the concerns of our nation,” Lewis said while surrounded by his fellow Democrats.

“How many more mothers, how many more fathers need to shed tears of grief before we do something?” he said to the nods and murmurs of the people around him.

“There comes a time when you have to make a little noise,” Lewis said, banging his fist on the podium, “Now is the time to get in the way. We will be silent no more. The time for silence is over!”

Maybe Lewis needs to hold his breath until his face turns blue…  Here he is, making his demand.

Don’t they just look cute?  All they need is a box of pacifiers.

No, Rep. Edwards, it’s time for you guys to do your job and vote on bills when they come up.  Throwing a temper tantrum like a bunch of little crybabies only shows America just how childish you liberal Democrats really are.

Buzzfeed added:

Shortly after they sat down, the House went to recess and the cameras were turned off. Because the House was not formally gaveled into session, the sit-in was not being televised. The House studio has control of the cameras inside, according to C-SPAN who clarified that the network was not responsible for the lost feed.

Besides, who wants to watch their elected officials act like two-year-olds?

Twitchy said the children, er, Democrats got a bit of encouragement.


But that makes too much sense, and besides, Democrats aren’t concerned about stopping gun crime, or they would’ve gone after the criminals and terrorists long ago.  What they really want is a full repeal of the Second Amendment and gun confiscation.


Stunts like this prove the current crop of Democrats aren’t fit to hold office and need to be soundly defeated.

Update:  It seems someone actually brought one of the special snowflakes a security blanket…


Yeah, that happened.  Wonder if the Sergeant-at-Arms is going to have to change their diapers?

Twitchy said Senator Barbara “Don’t call me ma’am” Boxer did the next best thing:

God help us.  Too bad we can’t just outlaw the Democratic Party for a couple decades so these people can grow up and become adults.
