Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley joined in the filibuster Wednesday evening to push for action on gun control.    

Merkley reflected on the most recent events in Orlando as well as recalling the Umpqua Community College shooting in Oregon last fall.

He was joined by other state leaders, including Connecticut's Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy.

They are calling for a vote on amendments to close the so called "terror gap" and expand background checks.
