Lawmakers look to restrict gun magazine capacity

WASHINGTON (AP) — Many lawmakers say they're willing to pursue some changes to the nation's gun laws, but adamant opposition from the National Rifle Association has made clear than any such effort will have difficulties.

Since the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California has been promising to push for a renewal of legislation that banned certain weapons and limited the number of bullets a gun magazine could hold to 10.

Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, a Texas Republican, said Sunday that Congress should look at "where the real danger is, like those large clips."

But NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre dismissed the assault weapons ban as a "phony piece of legislation" and made clear it was highly unlikely that the NRA could support any new gun regulations.
