Handguns are seen for sale in a display case at Metro Shooting Supplies in BridgetonBy Patricia Zengerle WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history prompted calls on Sunday by some members of Congress for legislation to tighten control of weapons sales, although there were slim hopes for much change after 50 people were killed at a gay nightclub in Florida.
