The House recently passed two bills strengthening background checks and closing a loophole related to the infamous mass murder at a black church in Charleston. MSNBC Chief Legal Correspondent, Ari Melber, walks through how the same Republicans in Congress who expressed “thoughts and prayers” after the mass murder committed by Dylann Roof, blocked a bill that would have closed the loophole that allowed him to purchase a gun. Senator Mitch McConnell's offices tells "The Beat" no gun vote is currently scheduled.
