Paul Ryan on Democrat Sit-In: ‘Nothing More Than a Publicity Stunt’

paul ryanHouse Speaker Paul Ryan appeared on CNN late this afternoon, and he reacted to the the House Democratic sit-in on gun control by saying, “This is nothing more than a publicity stunt.”

He said that Democrats fighting to close the terror gap are denying Americans their due process rights––that just because they’re on the terror watch list, they don’t get to buy guns.

Ryan said the emphasis should be on terrorism, not gun control, and said the Democrats are doing this for “attention,” not for solutions.

Wolf Blitzer asked him if the NRA is the key reason gun control legislation can’t get done. Ryan responded, “No, the Constitution is.”

As for the C-SPAN cameras being turned off, Ryan pointed to when the Democrats did that to Republicans.
