'Their blood is on your hands': Senate GOP incites disgust online for blocking gun bills after Orlando

After many of them sent "thoughts and prayers" toward the victims of the mass shooting in Orlando last week, Senate Republicans cast enough votes against a group of gun safety bills on Monday -- including two proposals from within their own party -- to prevent them from moving forward.


The move, while perhaps not surprising, still angered many Twitter users who supported the measures, which included expanded background checks and a ban on gun sales to individuals on terrorism watch lists.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who accused Democrats of trying to "craft the next 30-second campaign ad," came under particular criticism, while other users took the moment as a call to vote the Kentucky lawmaker and his colleagues out for their actions on Monday.
