Can LA Politicians Reduce Gun Violence?

Hosted by

Mass shooters often use guns equipped with high-capacity magazines, so they don't have to stop and re-load. This week, the LA City Council voted unanimously to ban magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. It's not really gun control, but advocates see momentum in that direction. Gun-rights groups see a threat to self-protection. Will it have any impact within -- or beyond -- city limits?

Also, as California's drought continues, US Senator Dianne Feinstein is finally heard from. We compare her proposals to those passed by Congress.
