Ryan: GOP won't 'tolerate' another sit-in

The Speaker is drawing a hard line the sand.  House Democrats should step right over it:

Speaker Paul Ryan warned that Republicans “will not tolerate” it if Democrats launch another sit-in on the House floor after the Fourth of July recess to force a vote on gun control.

In a television interview in his home state of Wisconsin, Ryan would not say specifically how his party would react differently to another protest but signaled that there would be a swift response.

The Speaker called Democrats' 24-hour-plus occupation of the House floor last week "a low moment for the people's House," but Democrats who joined the protest have vowed to hold another sit-in next week until Republicans allow a vote on gun control following the deadly Orlando shooting.  

“We are not going to handle it the same way,” Ryan said Sunday on WISN’s “UpFront with Mike Gousha.” "We will not take this. We will not tolerate this."
