4 Senate Gun Measures Fail After Orlando Shooting

Four bills up for a vote have failed before, and few expected a different result

— -- The Senate voted down four gun control measures Monday evening, with Republicans and Democrats largely divided along party lines over how best to respond to the Orlando nightclub shooting more than one week ago.

After San Bernardino, neither bill came up with the 60 votes needed -- a result that repeated itself Monday night on the Senate floor.

Murphy told ABC’s Jon Karl that he doubted the bill would pass.

"I admit that the background checks bill is going to be tough to get 60 votes on, but we still have hope that we can get Republicans to support the bill stopping terrorists from getting weapons," he said on Sunday’s “This Week.”
