Senate Rejects Limits On High-Capacity Ammuniition Magazines

The Illinois Senate has narrowly defeated a bill that would have banned ammunition magazines of more than 10 rounds.


Bill sponsor Sen. Dan Kotowski expressed frustration over what he says is the undue influence of the gun lobby on regulatory issues, at one point exclaiming, "Screw the gun industry!"  But opponents to the bill say it would further inhibit the ability of law-abiding people to protect themselves against criminals who are unlikely to abide by such limits anyway.


The bill failed with 28 voting yes and 31 voting no.
