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.

Though partisan differences plague debate in the Republican-dominated chamber, the bills reflect a shift in American sentiment on guns.

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