What Happened to the Gun Bill?

The Senate defeated several amendments to a proposed gun control bill, with only two amendments reaching the 60 votes necessary to pass. This visualization by ProPublica breaks down how the senators voted on individual amendments (GOP substitute, gun trafficking, concealed-carry permits, assault weapons permits, veterans gun rights, high-capacity magazines, gun owner privacy, and mental health) and reveals how democrats and republicans voted. It allows the users to filter by state, party, or to search for a senator in particular.
