Speaker Paul Ryan

During a recent interview, Ryan revealed Republicans will not tolerate another sit-in. The Republican Speaker of the House declined to give specific details as to how he intends to stop Democrats from staging another sit-in to protest gun control laws, but it appears he's serious.

GOP leaders also shuttered C-SPAN's live coverage of the protest, but that did not stop policy makers from tweeting and posting live feeds on Facebook and Periscope to disseminate their cause.

Several Democratic lawmakers are prepared to wait out the night, possibly into the next few days.
