C-SPAN isn't showing the House sit-in because lawmakers turned off the cameras

For nearly two hours, Democrats have staged a sit-in on the House floor, demanding a vote on stricter gun laws. But you won't see it on C-SPAN.

House majority leaders control the network's TV cameras. Republicans have turned them off, which they do whenever the House is in recess, as it was when the sit-in began.

Representatives and media, including the Los Angeles Times' Sarah Wire , are using Twitter, Snapchat and Periscope to fill the void.

This isn't the first time members of the House have stopped the cameras from rolling. In 2008 , Nancy Pelosi shut off the lights and cameras on the House floor while Republicans spoke about offshore drilling.
