Senate Executive Committee Passes Ban on Magazines Over Ten Rounds


An emotional appeal from parents of some of the young Newtown school shooting victims has spurred an Illinois Senate committee to approve a ban on the sale of high-capacity ammunition magazines.

 

The Newtown parents say more lives might have been spared at Sandy Hook Elementary School if shooter Adam Lanza had not had access to 30-round magazines that allowed him to fire more shots without reloading.

 

But opponents of the bill say the practical effect is to ban many popular types of guns, making the bill unconstitutional.
