New York, NY (WIBX) - A  New York State Senator is calling for a statewide ban on high capacity magazine guns. 

Holding a real assault rifle at a news conference in Yonkers on Sunday, Senator Eric Adams says he'll introduce a bill in Albany to ban the selling and owning of such weapons.

New York City has banned high capacity magazine guns but in the rest of the state it's legal.
