The U.S. Senate on Thursday cut off a filibuster effort on a new gun control bill, a major step in clearing the way for debate on a package of new firearms restrictions.
 
A group of senators led by Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) had tried to block debate from starting. Their effort was squashed by a final vote of 68 to 31, eight votes more than the 60-vote threshold needed.
 
Sixteen Republicans joined with 50 Democrats and two independents to let the bill proceed, while 29 Republicans and two Democrats voted to block it.
