The House of Representatives reconvened for a legislative session July 5, and the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) leadership is calling on CBC rank and file to “be as disruptive to (House) Speaker (Paul) Ryan (R-WI) as possible.”

Breitbart News previously reported that House Democrats promised guerrilla tactics for gun control following their 25-hour sit-in on June 22-23. However, there was no specification of the type of tactics that would be employed.

Fox News now reports that a CBC leadership memo reveals plans to disrupt the House for the coming week — and especially disrupt Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) — in an attempt to secure gun control.

The memo says: “Rep. Robin Kelly (D-IL) would like CBC members to be present for Floor activities on gun violence when the House returns to session on Tuesday, July 5, 2016. The plan is to be as disruptive to (House) Speaker (Paul) Ryan (R-WI) as possible next week.”
