Georgia Rep. John Lewis is leading a sit-in on the House floor Wednesday to force a vote on gun control in the wake of the Orlando massacre. “Now is the time for us to find a way to dramatize it, to make it real,” Lewis said. “We have to occupy the floor of the House until there is action.” Dozens of Democratic lawmakers joined Lewis in the sit-in.
