The Democrats held the Senate floor for 15 hours yesterday, demanding—and receiving—a promise of votes on new gun legislation.

Via Huffington Post:

WASHINGTON — Led by the senators who represent Newtown, Connecticut—where a gunman fatally shot 26 people, including 20 children, in 2012—Democrats took control of the Senate floor Wednesday and vowed to keep talking until lawmakers start doing something about gun violence.

Their stand lasted for nearly 15 hours, before they declared victory, saying shortly before ending their filibuster at 2:11 a.m. Thursday that Senate leaders had agreed to votes on two measures to close gun-buying loopholes.

One is an amendment that would bar people who are on terrorist watchlists from buying guns. Another would crack down on online and private gun sales that evade background checks.

“It is our understanding that the Republican leader and the Democratic leader have spoken and that we have been given a commitment on a path forward to get votes on the floor of the Senate,” said Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), who spearheaded the filibuster-style takeover.
