But What’s Happening Outside the Capitol is Beautiful

They chanted “Do your job!” to Republican members unwilling to put bills regulating gun sales to a vote.
A huge crowd gathered outside of the Capitol building to support the Democrats holding a sit-in to protest inaction on gun control Wednesday.
