Senate Committee Approves Ban Of High-Capacity Ammo Magazines


An Illinois Senate committee has approved a bill that would prohibit the sale of high-capacity ammunition magazines, like the ones used by the shooter in last year's Connecticut school massacre. 

 

The vote came after intense testimony from both sides.  Several parents of the young victims at Sandy Hook urged senators to approve the bill... which they say would save lives by reducing the ability of a shooter to get off as many rounds uninterrupted. 

 

But gun rights supporters say the bill will leave law-abiding citizens vulnerable, and would in effect ban many popular handguns and rifles, which already come with larger capacity magazines than the 10-round limit spelled out in the bill.
