Presidential candidate and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D.) endorsed ending the filibuster and using executive orders to address the gun issue Sunday night on MSNBC. The senator’s comments came in the wake of two mass shootings in El Paso, Texas. and Dayton, Ohio over the past weekend.

“We get rid of the filibuster and go with the majority vote,” she told MSNBC host Kasie Hunt.

Hunt asked Warren what she would do differently as president to get gun control initiatives passed.

“Part of it I’m willing to attack the corruption head-on, including the corruption of the gun manufacturers that hire all the lobbyists that call the shots in Washington,” Warren responded. “But the second part is remember, six years ago the Senate passed by a vote of 54-46 background checks. I say they passed. That was the majority, but not with a filibuster in place. It wasn’t good enough to get the job done.”
