congress is having a sit in demanding legislation right now. a bunch of congress men and women are refusing to get up until they pass something pertaining the no fly no buy. now honestly i believe if you are not allowed to fly do to your name being on a terror list then honestly why should they buy a gun. if its a name conflict then get it straightened out and go about your purchase. BUT ......IF YOUR ON THAT LIST BECAUSE YOU MAY BE A THREAT TO THIS COUNTRY , WELL FORGET NO FLY NO BUY.......PUT THEM ON A PLANE AND FLY THEM THE FREAK OUTTA HERE. WHY ARE THEY EVEN HERE......and on another note all to all the congress men and women...i hope they sit in for so long that there over paid under worked Butt dehydrate and pass out until after november......my two cents... :)

Despite being a sizable minority — courtesy of the U.S. voter — House Democrats have taken to staging a sit-in on the chamber floor in an effort to force their gun control views on the country.
Led by civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis, Democrat lawmakers have engaged in the ultimate political theater, sitting on the floor of the House of Representatives and declaring that they will not leave until the House takes a vote on gun control

Might I gently suggest you do some homework before you endorse "no fly, no buy." Check out what the ACLU says about the no fly list. (Here's a hint: it sucks, its unconstitutional, its a police state tactic.)

As far as the sit in....it's disgusting. They have no idea what they are talking about; the laws they want to pass will do nothing to stop terrorist or the mentally ill people from committing mass murder; they are willing to rip the Bill of Rights apart for some cheap headlines, a few feel-good votes, and the approval of all the soccer moms in the US

So, a bunch of politicians, sitting on their a$$, doing nothing to solve real problems like terrorism. Sounds like business as usual in the Government.

Typical 1960's tactic. Of course it is not much different from what Congress normally does.....sit on their butts.

... And get nothing more done beyond ranting about their views... Sounds like true POTUS followers!

What about the multiple Congress personnel that were on the list... Can't fly public airways, but can vote on and write laws! The list is corrupt and not a valid means to deny anyone of their constitutional rights!!

If I were a Congressman I would be standing near them while I munch on some chips and laugh at them. I would also be wearing a button that says "I am the NRA.

Mockery is a powerful weapon against the Commies.

Its such a publicity stunt. All sensationalism, temper tantrums and photo ops. No substance.
Have our elected officials no self respect?

Did republicans act this childishly when ObamaScare was passed?

Totally childish.

Well, to be fair, Sam I Am is both humorous and intellectual and teaches tolerance.
Also, it doesn't involve singing kumbaya around a campfire in the capitol building.
