US President Barack Obama, accompanied by former lawmaker Gabrielle Giffords (C), speaks on gun control and the vote at the US Senate on April 17, 2013 in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, DC. The US Senate rejected bipartisan legislation that would have expanded background checks for firearm sales, leaving a gaping hole in President Barack Obama's drive to improve gun safety after December's school massacre. With 60 votes needed for approval, the measure requiring background checks on sales at gun shows and on the Internet fell well short, in a 54-46 vote, as a handful of Democrats either facing tough re-election challenges in 2014 or from pro-gun states stood in opposition of the amendment.
