A group of anti-gun protesters interrupted a congressional hearing on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) on Thursday, prompting Rep. Pat Fallon (R-TX) to question whether the protesters’ actions should be considered an “insurrection.”
A group of anti-gun protesters can be heard shouting outside the joint hearing, which forced lawmakers to pause their examination, video of the moment shows.
“Is this an insurrection?” Rep. Fallon asks as the hearing is interrupted. “So will they be held to the same…we don’t want another January 6, do we?”
