    The media orgy over the Democratsí temper tantrum in the House of Representatives has been well documented over the past 24 hours. But with all the fawning tributes and comparisons to civil rights era protests on the 1960s, one fundamental, logical question seems to have escaped the minds of the hive-mentality media gaggle covering the Pelosi-run publicity stunt. Letís first point out the so-called ďcommon sense gun safety legislationĒ these Democrats claim was the impetus behind their fund-raising escapade disguised as a protest. The crux of their agenda had to do with legislation designed to prevent individuals on the terrorist...

    Famed civil-rights attorney Alan Dershowitz said Thursday that the Democrats "shot themselves in the foot" with their 25-hour demonstration for gun votes and that the "stunt" could hurt Hillary Clinton this fall. "I'm a liberal Democrat, supporter of Hillary Clinton," Dershowitz, a Harvard Law School professor emeritus, told CNN host Don Lemon. "They hurt her by making fools of themselves, sitting in on Congress and pulling this kind of stunt.

    The sit-in that was launched by House Democrats to force a vote on gun control has finally come to an end. The House adjourned until after the Independence Day holiday, which meant that there would certainly be no votes on gun control. Prior to the protest’s conclusion on the House floor, the will of Democrats to stand fast began to falter (via Politico): House Democrats ended their sit-in protest on gun control Thursday, a full day after they seized control of the floor. The protest wrapped up with closing remarks by Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), who helped spearhead the effort, and...
