FROM THIS EPISODE

The LA City Council has banned ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. The Police Protective League has demanded exemptions for retired cops and reservists. Even some gun rights advocates don't buy that idea, but the Council is showing signs of going along. How many bullets are too many?

Later on the program, backyard swimming pools have been a defining characteristic of LA's sprawling suburbs. Now many are being demolished, because of the drought and changing demographics.

How Many Bullets Are Too Many? 18 MIN, 56 SEC

Last summer, the LA City Council voted unanimously to prohibit magazines that hold more than 10 bullets. Then, the Police Protective League demanded exemptions, so retired officers and active reservists could carry more. A Council committee has approved that change — setting off a battle about ammunition. We hear from both sides.
