Welcome to this special edition of Radio Curious with Congressman Sam Farr. We spoke with Congressman Farr while he and approximately 150 other Democratic members of Congress were participating in an unprecedented sit-in on the floor of the House of Representatives. The issue is gun control. These members of Congress are demanding that the Republican leadership of the House allow the a vote on gun control.
Our visited by phone with Congressman Farr occurred at midnight on June 23, 2016, while he participated in the Sit-In on the floor of the House of Representatives. The Republican leadership of the House had turned off all the microphones as well as the live television feed from C-Span. The background noise you hear is from the activity and speeches going on while we visited. I asked Congressman Farr to describe the scene, the issue and what may occur as a result of this novel political action.
