Congressional Democrats held an unprecedented sit-in on the House floor last week in a push for a vote on two pieces of gun control legislation.
Yet an analysis conducted by the blog Heat Street found that at least 26 of the Democratic lawmakers who participated in the nearly 25-hour sit-in are actually gun owners themselves!
Based on a 2013 story in USA Today, 119 Republicans at the time were gun owners, while 46 Democrats were in that category. Heat Street was able to narrow that down to the following list.

As lawmakers debate these new laws, it’s worth remembering the names of gun owners in Congress who’d vote to limit the Second Amendment rights of other Americans.
