Arizona Lawmakers Consider Gun Laws

Arizona lawmakers are proposing a bill which would ban large capacity gun magazines.

This comes a month after a shooter opened fire outside a Tucson grocery store and shot Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and 18 others.

This piece of legislation would ban large-capacity clips like those used in the shooting.

Another bill would require schools and public agencies to notify health authorities about fired employees, expulsions and suspensions resulting from violence or threatening behavior.
