The U.S. House of Representatives held a moment of silence Monday night to honor the victims of the Orlando shooting. But it was interrupted by a group of Democrats demanding Speaker Paul Ryan and other Republicans take action on gun control.

Several members walked out, including Massachusetts U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton, who joined Morning Edition on Tuesday morning.

This segment aired on June 14, 2016.
