New L.A. proposals to end gang violence
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Los Angeles lawmakers are looking at making the city safer from gang violence.
A City Council committee submitted five proposals on Monday aimed at putting gangs out of business.
They include seizing vehicles used in gang related crimes, throwing people out of public housing when they're caught with illegal weapons, banning possession of .50-caliber ammunition and requiring face-to-face ammunition sales to prevent city residents from purchasing bullets over the Internet.
