Twenty people were arrested Tuesday after staging a die-in and blocking the driveway to the National Rifle Association’s headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia. About 100 people held an overnight vigil to mourn the Orlando victims and call for a ban on military-style assault weapons. Medea Benjamin, head of the group CodePink, denounced Congress’ failure to pass gun control.
Medea Benjamin: "Our democracy is broken, just like our gun laws are broken, just like our hearts are broken, just like our lives are broken. If we had a real democracy, we would have had those laws passed yesterday."
