Yesterday, in an effort to force legislative action on gun control,
Sen. Chris Murphy staged a 15-hour filibuster on the Senate floor. It
lasted from 11 am Wednesday through 2 am Thursday, eventually ending with
the GOP agreeing to vote on a gun control bill.
As politicians recounted stories of gun violence before the Senate, there
were 38 shootings that killed 12 people and injured 36 more across America.
