FROM THIS EPISODE

This week, the LA City Council passed a measure requiring gun owners to store their weapons under lock and key at home. And earlier this year, Mayor Eric Garcetti signed an new ordinance that restricts the amount of ammunition in high-capacity magazines. Gun rights activists filed suit last week to overturn it – in an interesting way. We get to the bottom of why cities are tackling this issue – and why other governments are not.

KCRW's Steve Chiotakis is joined by Emily Alpert Reyes, City Hall reporter for the LA Times and Andrew Blankstein of NBC News.
