The four competing gun proposals put forward in the Senate all failed to earn a majority of votes Monday night. Similar versions of these proposals failed to pass in the Senate after the terrorist attack in San Bernardino last year. Lawmakers voted 53-47 for a Republican-proposed background-check plan and 44-56 for the Democratic-proposed one. Both failed to earn a 60-vote majority. Another motion requiring background checks at gun shows failed, too, with a 44-56 vote. A measure proposed by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) that would allow the attorney general to deny firearms to suspected terrorists also failed. These measures come just a week after the most fatal shooting in U.S. history took place in Orlando.
