When Adam Lanza shot his way into the Sandy Hook Elementary School and killed 26 people, he used a military-style weapon. He also had 10, 30-round magazines full of a total of 300 bullets. Now, Connecticut lawmakers say they want to ban the sale of those gun magazines, hoping that magazines that hold fewer bullets will mean fewer deaths. Some in the gun industry say that move will cost the state jobs.
