Los Angeles leaders ban high-capacity gun magazines after string of US mass shootings
The nation’s second-largest city is poised to ban possession of firearm magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, stepping into the national debate over gun regulation following a series of deadly, mass shootings. California is one of a handful of states that give local government considerable latitude to enact gun regulation. The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously recently to close a loophole in state law that bans the manufacture and sale of large-capacity magazines, but not their possession.
