Congressional Black Caucus Plans to Disrupt House on Tuesday as Part of ‘Day of Action’ on Gun Violence

The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) is planning to disrupt the House when members return as part of a push for more action to stop gun violence, according to a memo obtained by the Washington Examiner.

The caucus said its members should be “as disruptive to Speaker [Paul] Ryan [R-Wis.] as possible next week” when the House gets back on Tuesday as part of a “day of action on the floor in regards to gun violence,” the memo, sent to Democratic offices, said.

Members will give speeches pushing for more restrictions on the possession and use of guns, the Examiner reported. They will also attend a House Rules Committee hearing on Tuesday afternoon, where legislation on terrorism and gun control will be addressed.

“During Votes – Members are encouraged to have a picture (not poster board, but a printed piece of paper with an image of a constituent killed by a firearm),” the memo said.
