DOVER, Del. (AP) - A gun control measure aimed at banning high-capacity magazines is getting a first look by Delaware lawmakers
A bill to be considered by a House committee Wednesday criminalizes the manufacture, sale, transfer, purchase, receipt or unlawful possession of magazines holding more than an approved number of bullets.
As initially written, the bill prohibited magazines holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition. The bill sponsor has since added an amendment permitting magazines holding up to 17 rounds instead of 10 rounds.
