After the frigging Senate refused to pass the Manchin-Toomey background checks amendment,  Arizona shooting survivor Patricia Maish shouted out "Shame on you."   She (and the gallery in general, I guess) were told to be quiet.
Contrast the scene in the  New Zealand Parliament when equal marriage passed - one of the onlookers started singing a Maori love song. Not only was he not shushed, more people joined in (in harmony, no less).
The singing starts a little after 0:50
