Senate Democrats filibuster for gun control

You can watch it live on CSPAN. Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut, who mentioned in his comments that this is personal, as his son this year is a first grader, the same age as the kids who were killed in Newtown.
You can find your senators here.  As of my writing this at 4 pm, Senator Markey has already spoken, and Senator Warren just tweeted that she's on her way.
If you're wondering what this has to do with my usual subjects, I'll quote Senator Patty Murray:

UPDATE: Senator Murphy ended his filibuster over 14 hours after he began, after Senate Republicans agreed to debate the amendments today at 10:30.
