In the wake of the 49 murders at Orlando ‘s Gay nightclub , there’s been a conversation on gun control in this country, or the lack of it.

The ease of getting a gun in America is, at this point, terrifyingly entertaining.

In the wake of Orlando’s shooting massacre, a columnist in Philadelphia purchased an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle, the gun became american murders’ tool. She was able to buy it in 7 mins. Another writer, in Vermont, purchased the same gun model from smugglers, the site of the mass shooting, in a little over 38 minutes. According to Fox Business, AR-15s are flying off the shelves. (The gun used in the Orlando shooting was a Sig Sauer MCX.

But the best summation of the sad hilarity of this all might go to a segment from HBO’sReal Sports with Bryant Gumbel. In 2014, the show outfitted a 13-year-old boy with a hidden camera and had him try to buy things he wasn’t allowed to.

It was easier for a 13-year-old boy from Virginia to purchase a gun, a .22 caliber rifle, from a private seller at a gun show than it was for him to buy porn, cigarettes, beer, and lottery tickets. (According to Virginia State Police, you must be 18 years of age to purchase a rifle or shotgun from a licensed firearms dealer.)

It’s so real and shocking that it’s almost feels like satire or parody.

On Wednesday, members of the Senate, predominantly Democrats, held a 15-hour filibuster to change the way we sell guns in this country. That filibuster has prompted a vote.
