Speier’s quick remarks came shortly before nine in the morning on the East Coast, as a dwindling number of congressional Democrats carried out the final hrs. of a sit-in on the floor of the Property of Representatives to try to force a gun-control vote. The protest ended not long afteward, without capitulation from the Republicans.
