Senate Blocks Four Gun Control Proposals In The Wake Of The Orlando Shooting

Filed under: PolitikViolenceViral: NewsControversy

This is so frustrating.

After Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy's 14-hour filibuster on Wednesday prompted a vote on gun control regulations, we hoped something was FINALLY going to change.

Instead, the Senate has blocked four proposals during the vote on Monday.

The Democratic politician held the filibuster in the wake of the June 12 shooting at Orlando's Pulse gay club that killed 49 people and injured dozens.

But even this terrible tragedy couldn't get the two parties in the Senate to agree on a measure.

Iowa Senator Charles Grassley pitched a plan that would increase money for background checks. However, it overhauled language that prevented people with mental illness from purchasing firearms.

But, Democratic opponents felt it would diminish the protections that are already in place,

This is just sad and scary on another level.

Antonio Perkins was hanging out on the sidewalk on Wednesday afternoon when he was suddenly shot dead… and the whole thing was caught on camera.

Perkins, 28, was on a Chicago street casually partying when he started recording a video on Facebook Live, complaining about the heat and laughing with friends.

However, after roughly five minutes of recording, about a dozen gun shots rang out from off camera, and Perkins was hit — and the video captured bloody grass and more as the phone tumbled to the ground.

And we know you must be thinking it's incredibly hypocritical for someone who has purchased a war weapon to be preaching about regulating the sale of these guns, but hear him out.

After explaining his past history with the armed forces — including his training and familiarity with rifles life this one — and explaining how the gun in the photo works, Brandyn explains he views it more as a piece of memorabilia than a weapon he ever intends to use, writing:

RuPaul is speaking out about last weekend's senseless shooting in Orlando.

The Skin Wars star said this disgusting act has rocked everyone across the country, saying:

"Every American who believes in what this country stands for is shaken to the core. Shaken to the core, and it really does have to stop."

And in order for it to stop, the California native insists that we, as a nation, have to change our way of thinking:

"A collective shift in our consciousness has to happen. That's the solution."

But in the wake of an act fueled by such incomprehensible hate, the TV personality says acceptance and love is the only way we can start that shift, adding:

It Took Seven Minutes For This Reporter To Buy An Assault Rifle Just Like The One Used In The Orlando Shooting

Filed under: Legal MattersR.I.P.Sad SadViolenceScary!CrazzzzyViral: NewsControversy

This is incredible!!

Helen Ubinas is a reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer, and she was so motivated by the horrific nightclub shooting in Orlando over the weekend, that she decided to test the system and make a statement in her own way.

That is, she wanted to prove a point about gun control laws by walking into a gun shop and buying a weapon — the exact same weapon that was used in what is now the deadliest mass shooting in American history.

Only, Ubinas didn't count on one thing during her trip: it was so simple to purchase the gun that it even left her absolutely shocked at just how quickly she was able to do it.

Seven minutes.

That's right. It took her SEVEN MINUTES to buy an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle.

She recounted her story today in a horrifyingly jarring piece in Philadelphia's Inquirer, in which she wrote:

Filed under: Legal MattersR.I.P.PolitikSad SadViolenceLate Night TVViral: NewsLGBT

This Bee knows how to sting!

It's been a little over two days since America suffered its most deadly mass shooting in modern history… and yet our politicians will probably still do nothing to fix our nation's gun control problem.

Luckily, Samantha Bee is just as pissed off about the 49 senseless LGBT deaths at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida as we are, and she's using her platform on Full Frontal to talk some sense into our leaders!

Related: Here Are The 49 Orlando Nightclub Shooting Victims

The TBS late night host kicked off Monday night's episode with a striking cold open where she questioned why we were facing yet another mass shooting and came up with the perfect solution…

No more AR-15s!!!

We could not agree with Sam more — there's absolutely no reason that anyone in this country needs to own a military rifle meant for war, regardless of your stance on the 2nd Amendment!

Although… if we didn't fix things after Sandy Hook, will there ever be a tragedy big enough to dethrone the corrupt NRA??

Ch-ch-check out Full Frontal with Samantha Bee's most powerful (and slightly NSFW) segment to date (below)!!!
