When Speaker of the House Paul Ryan gaveled the House of Representatives to order, no one listened.
They voted on a bill to override President Obama's financial regulation rules at the moment, but Democrats are not being silent. During the votes, they sang "We Shall Overcome," and shouted "Shame!" at Ryan as he left the room.
Republicans quickly gaveled out after their veto override failed.
Here are some tweets:

Sparked by massacre after massacre, the revolution has exploded on the house floor, and make no mistake, the leader is Obama. #NoBillNoBreak

Louie Gohmert had to jump into the action. LOL
Rep. Louis Gohmert yelling "RADICAL ISLAM" at D's from the floor of the House, sort of a perfect button on this.
