The Senate has pushed a bipartisan gun violence bill to the brink of passage. Senators voted Thursday to halt a Republican filibuster against the measure, clearing the way for Congress’ most far-reaching response in decades to the nation’s run of brutal mass shootings. Republicans have long used such procedural delays to derail Democratic efforts to curb firearms. But after last month's mass shootings in Buffalo, New York, and Uvalde, Texas, Democrats and some Republicans decided that congressional inaction was untenable.
