Los Angeles Council Passes Ban on High-Capacity Firearm Magazines

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, July 29, 2015

Responding to the recent rash of mass shootings across the country, the Los Angeles City Council unanimously voted on Tuesday to ban the possession of firearm magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

The Council said the ordinance would close a loophole in a state law, which already bans the sale and manufacture of such magazines. Mayor Eric Garcetti said he would sign the ordinance.

Anyone who already owns high-capacity magazines will have 60 days to remove them from the city or turn them over to the Police Department, which will then destroy, transfer or sell them.

New York State passed a similar law in 2013 shortly after the shootings in Newtown, Conn., in which 20 children and six staff members at Sandy Hook Elementary School were killed.
