John Lewis is the U.S. Representative for Georgia’s 5th congressional district. He’s held the seat for 30 years. Speaking at today’s anti-NRA rally by Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, Rep. Lewis promised to repeat his pro-gun control sit down demonstration on the House floor.
Rep. Lewis then called for the Moms to mount their own sit down strikes in Georgia and other state houses. As you can see in the video above, that idea didn’t receive quite the same enthusiastic reception as the usual NRA slam.
We’ll see if Lewis or the Moms adopt the Rep’s 60’s-era protest tactic, or continue to lobby for gun control in their social media safe space, and locations within Uber-distance of gun rights gatherings.
