Default Gun control dying in the Senate.

The Senate on Wednesday defeated a vital background check amendment seen as the linchpin to Democrats' gun control bill, dealing a major setback to President Obama -- who lashed out at opponents in unusually blunt terms during remarks from the Rose Garden.

"All in all, this was a pretty shameful day for Washington," Obama said.

The vote was 54-46, with supporters falling six votes short of the required 60-vote threshold.



Democrats couldn't get the votes and were not willing to sacrifice the 4-5 dem senators who would lose re-election if they voted for it.
