DOVER, Del. (AP) - A gun control measure banning high-capacity magazines is headed for consideration by the state House after clearing a committee.
The legislation released from 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 later added an amendment permitting magazines holding up to 17 rounds.
