>> Peace, love, Pulse.>> The deadliest mass shooting in modern US history not enough to break the deadlock in the senate on guns.>> The motion is not agreed to.>> One by one, four gun measures in response to the massacre in Orlando from both Republicans and Democrats failing to pass.

At least not yet. Gun control supporters still clinging to a slim hope that a compromise being drafted by Senator Susan Collins of Maine might still have a chance.
00:01:36
>> Is not agreed to.
