House wraps up without gun control votes


WASHINGTON (AP) – The U.S. House has adjourned until after July 4 after majority Republicans pushed through a partisan bill to deal with the Zika outbreak.
Republicans moved to adjourn immediately after the Zika vote to shut down a round-the-clock sit-in by Democrats demanding votes on gun-control bills.
Democrats denounced the GOP plan as “cowardly” and stayed on the floor to demand votes on bills to strengthen background checks and prevent suspected terrorists from buying guns.
