*Bernie Sanders: ‘It Doesn’t Appear’ I’ll Be the Democratic Nominee:
House Democrats are holding a sit-in on the floor of the chamber in a push for more gun control measures. “Now is the time for us to find a way to dramatize it, to make it real,” Rep.John Lewis said. “We have to occupy the floor of the House until there is action.” The sit-in is not being televised because the House has not officially been gaveled into session. Earlier this week, four gun control amendments—two proposed by Democrats and two by Republicans—failed to secure the necessary 60 votes. President Obama tweeted his gratitude for the sit-in: “Thank you John Lewis for leading on gun violence where we need it most,” he wrote. C-SPAN cameras shut off because House Speaker Paul Ryan ordered a recess, but after the Democrats began a #TurnOnTheCameras social media campaign, the cable network began carrying live footage via several lawmakers’ Periscope feeds.

*Police: Christina Grimmie’s Killer Wanted to Impress Her:
Kevin Loibl, the man who shot and killed singer Christina Grimmie this month, was reportedly obsessed with Grimmie and admired her to the point of altering his appearance to impress her. Loibl, 27, whitened his teeth, lost weight, and got Lasik surgery and hair plugs. A friend told police that he expressed doubt to Loibl about the possibility of him ever dating her—something that made Loibl defensive. He shot and killed Grimmie on June 10 before turning the gun on himself.
