Proposed Caddo gun ordinance seeks to limit ammo capacity
SHREVEPORT, La. – A Caddo Parish commissioner wants to crack down on drive-by shootings by limiting the amount of ammunition a person can have in a loaded gun while traveling on a parish roadway.
Johnson’s ordinance would apply to firearms with a magazine capable of holding more than 20 rounds of ammunition. It would require those magazines to be removed from the guns while in a vehicle being driven on parish roads.
“I don’t care what you have at home. But on a public road, you don’t need a gun with more than 20 rounds,” Johnson said.
This is no mention of expected compliance by those committing the drive-by shootings.
