The US Senate has thrown out four gun control bills in the aftermath of the Orlando night club massacre, in a move that was expected.

The votes came after one Democrat took the House floor last week for nearly 15 hours to demand action on gun control.

Forty-nine people were killed at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando.
