Lyin' Ryan Still Wants To Punish Dems For Sit In

It's been nearly three weeks since the Democrats had their dramatic sit in on the floor of the House of Representatives. It was a success in that it helped draw the nation's attention to the gun epidemic that is raging unabated and untreated in this country. It was less successful when one considers that the Republicans decided that they were more beholden to their NRA masters than to the American people.

Even though Lyin' Paul Ryan eventually got his way, he is still having a temper tantrum. He's still got hurt feelings because the Democrats not only called attention to the Republicans' failure to stand up for the people, they also exposed Ryan for being a spineless fraud with no real power despite his position.

Ryan's hurt feel-feels are making him still want to lash out in his impotent rage and punish the Democrats:
U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said on Thursday “all options” were being considered over the possible discipline of House Democrats for protests they held on the House floor to call for action on gun-control measures.

With Democrats already rejecting a Republican gun bill and warning of further protests, the Republican-controlled House appeared to be heading for renewed discord over gun restrictions following the June 12 mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

Ryan, who was speaking at a news conference, had previously said the House would vote this week on a measure intended to keep guns out of the hands of people the government suspects of involvement in violent extremism. But it is no longer clear when a vote might be held.

Democrats say the Republican-backed legislation is inadequate because authorities would have only three days to convince a judge that a gun sale should be blocked.
On the bright side, Ryan isn't physically crying like the Orange Man did, but he's just as big of a crybaby. Someone needs to get Ryan his binky stat and tell him it be all OK.
