US Senate rejects ban on high-capacity gun magazines, clips

April 18, 2013 02:10

WASHINGTON - The US Senate on Wednesday rejected a Democratic proposal to ban nearly all high-capacity gun ammunition clips and magazines containing more than 10 rounds, cementing a major defeat of US President Barack Obama's gun control efforts.

The Senate voted 46 in favor and 54 against the measure after defeating a military-style assault weapons ban and failing to muster enough votes to expand gun purchase background checks to Internet sales and gun shows.
