Too bad they couldn’t show them all live during the filibuster.

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.

The shootings began as soon as Murphy took the floor, shortly after 11 am.

Around that time, a man walked into a medical office in eastern Washington, shot his chiropractor to death, and then killed himself.

Moments later, in Cottontown, Tennessee, two men were gunned down in an apparent home intrusion.
