Santa Fe City Council voted down a proposed ban on large capacity gun magazines on Wednesday night.

More than 165 residents packed into city hall to give their two cents about the proposed ordinance. If the ban had passed, it would have eliminated gun magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

The touchy resolution failed with a vote of 6-2. The only councilors in favor were Patti Bushee and Chris Calvert.
