Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)-  On October 29th 2013, San Francisco supervisors “unanimously” passed a ban on “high capacity” magazines within city limits. This comes on the heels of news that the “strict gun control” already in place in the city is not working.

San Francisco has pursued Chicago-like gun control for years, including the passage of an all-out ban on privately owned handguns in 2005. That ban was struck down by a California court in 2008, but smaller, incremental gun control measures remain on the books and continue to be passed.

Nevertheless, the San Jose Mercury News reports that recent FBI crime figures show violent crime in Oakland, San Francisco, and San Jose increased in 2012–raising the number of homicides to a twenty year high for the Bay Area and showing an increase in homicides for the second year in a row.

In response, San Francisco supervisors passed more gun control. Their “high capacity” magazine ban comes in lieu of the state-wide ban on “assault rifles” that Governor Jerry Brown (D) vetoed on October 11 2013.
