In a sign of unwavering partisan gridlock, the Senate blocked four gun measures Monday — two from each party — in the wake of the Orlando shooting.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Democrats are taking advantage of the Orlando massacre, using it as a political talking point. He called the Republican proposals "real solutions." Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., called the Republican measures "political stunts."

But Hillary Clinton had only one word for the Senate: "Enough."

The presumptive Democratic nominee's statement included just that word, followed by a list of the Orlando shooting's 49 victims.
