The mayor and police chief said Monday they're joining their counterparts in other cities across the country in a call for Congress to reinstate a ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines like those used in a series of mass shootings, most recently the Arizona rampage that wounded U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed six people earlier this year.
