A state lawmaker from Long Island wants to ban high capacity ammunition magazines in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., school massacre.
Representative Carolyn McCarthy is reintroducing legislation to reinstate the ban on those ammunition clips. McCarthy lost her husband and son to gun violence in the 1993 mass shooting on the Long Island Rail Road.
The High Capacity Ammunition Feeding Device Act would ban the sale or transfer of ammunition magazines that hold more than ten rounds.
