While federal gun control proposals have so far been modest - focusing on a renewed assault weapons ban and background checks - gun control plans laid by Democratic state lawmakers have been much more sweeping.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo intends a ban on ammunition magazines with a capacity higher than 7 rounds. (The current NY limit is 10 rounds.)
Chicago's Mayor Rahm Emanuel has ordered the city to stop investing pension funds in companies that make assault weapons.
Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley has proposed a ban on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines, and a comprehensive licensing system for handguns.
And New York City's Mayor Bloomberg is asking Joe Biden to enact wholesale federal gun control measures, including a background check for the purchase of all firearms.
