Gun Control Activists Hosted a ‘Die-In’ on Capitol Hill — Now They’re Targeting the ‘Happiest Place on Earth’

Pro-gun control activists hosted a “die-in” across the nation on Tuesday, the second anniversary of the Orlando nightclub shooting, including on Capitol Hill.

Activists rallied in front of the U.S. Capitol and demanded that Congress vote for an “assault weapons” ban, universal background checks, and allowing the Centers for Disease Control to study gun violence. After laying down on the lawn for 12 minutes, activists then hosted “die-ins” in nearby Senate offices.

The activists sat in the offices of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). 

On Wednesday, the group indicated on social media that the next “die-in” would take place at a Disney theme park or its corporate headquarters:

National Die-In chose Disney as its target because of its contributions to Florida Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam’s political committee:

“We want to keep doing these protests to show people we aren’t backing down,” group co-founder Nurah Abdulhaqq told the Orlando Sentinel.
