After a three-and-a-half-hour hearing, a House committee released a highly charged gun bill to the chamber floor Tuesday. The House Judiciary Committee voted on party lines to approve legislation that would prohibit magazines capable of holding more than 17 rounds, one of two gun-related measures the General Assembly is currently considering.
