Comedy star Amy Schumer is upset with the way the authorities are treating serious issue like gun control.

The 35-year-old actress, who has been vocal about the amendments in the gun control law, blasted the US Senate after it failed to pass a series of gun control measures this week, reported People magazine.

"I am sickened by the cowardice of these people who are supposed to lead us. Their dedication seems to be only to dollar signs for their own pockets. In November, we will remember who stood with the gun lobby, rather than their constituents, as we mourned for Orlando," Schumer said.

The Senate had rejected four new gun control proposals on Monday, a week after the mass shooting in Orlando that claimed 49 lives.
