Hoyer Discusses House Democrats' Sit-In on MSNBC

We are standing up for 85% to 90% of Americans who believe the two bills we want to bring to the Floor - and not just in light of the tragedy in Orlando, but the 33,000 other deaths that have occurred as a result of guns in the past year or on an average year - that's what we're standing up for, and we think that those bills ought to be brought to the Floor.
