26 Democrats Who Participated in Gun Control Sit-In Are Gun Owners

After congressional Democrats ended their day-long sit-in on the House floor in a push for a vote on two pieces of gun control legislation, it has emerged that 26 of those Democratic lawmakers are gun owners themselves.

Heat Street examined 2013 USA Today data on congressional firearm ownership, finding that in addition to the 26 gun owners, there were 12 more congressional Democrats who did not answer if they owned a firearm or not.

The sit-in centered on two pieces of proposed gun legislation, one for expanded background checks and one for restricting gun sales to terror suspects.

Here’s the full list of Democratic gun owners who participated in the sit-in:
