Newtown Parents Push Illinois Senators for High Capacity Magazine Ban


Parents of some of the victims of the Newtown, Connecticut school massacre will be in Springfield today… encouraging state senators to support a ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.

 

Those same parents stood Sunday with Governor Pat Quinn and Senate President John Cullerton at a Chicago news conference.

 

They contend that if shooter Adam Lanza had not had access to 30-round clips, he would have spent more time reloading and fewer children would have died at Sandy Hook Elementary.

 

Cullerton says he hopes the presence of the parents will make senators, quote, “very uncomfortable” about voting against the ban.
