258 candles-day 120

Agree or disagree with their rationale for doing it, but there is no denying that these Congresspeople and Senators (all of them Democrats) are doing something both historic and meaningful. They are, in effect, putting their political futures on the line by taking a radically old-school method--the sit-in--and bringing it literally to the House floor. This is why we elect the people we elect: the hope they will find in themselves the way to make our wishes, in this case the well-documented desire of most Americans (including, famously, a majority of gun owners), known and acted on. Whether or not these laws come to pass will depend on actions like these.
