SACRAMENTO (KCBS) – A state legislative committee was taking up a key gun control bill in Sacramento Tuesday.

The Assembly Committee on Public Safety held a hearing Tuesday morning on a proposal to require ammunition vendors to be authorized dealers and to get identification from buyers.

The bill, authored by Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley), would also bar devices that allow guns to fire more than 10 bullets without reloading.

Skinner’s proposal is one of many gun control bills making their way through the state legislature on the heels of the Sandy Hook massacre.
