WATCH NOW: Democratic senators filibuster for gun control

In the wake of the Orlando shooting, the deadliest mass shooting in American history, Democratic senators have decided to filibuster for gun control action.

Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy has launched a filibuster on Wednesday on the Senate floor. He is vowing to stay "for as long as I can" until Congress acts on gun control legislation. This action comes just 4 days after the deadliest mass shooting in America's history which took place at a gay club in Orlando early Sunday morning. 49 innocent people were murdered.
