Paul Ryan: House Will Vote on Gun Control Next Week

sit-in-e1466614449644It looks like that Democratic sit-in might have actually gotten something done, because Paul Ryan said today that the House of Representatives would be taking up gun control legislation this week.

Democrats held the sit-in demanding up-or-down votes on gun control measures, especially one to keep people on the terror watch list from being able to buy guns.

Ryan said recently their sit-in was a publicity stunt, but according to the AP, Ryan said on a call with House Republicans today that they will be holding a vote on the terror watch list legislation.

However, this would be part of anti-terrorism legislation, and Ryan reportedly complained about how Democrats care more about guns than terrorism.
