I know that you are aware of SB 249, introduced by Leland Yee, which ostensibly seeks to regulate the “bullet button.” On first read, the bill appeared to ban assemblies such as magnetic buttons that mount on top of the bullet button, thus converting the legal firearm into an AW [Assault Weapon]. These tools are already illegal to deploy, and this apparent ill-conceived redundancy lulled the active CA firearm community into not taking this bill seriously . . .
However, a more penetrating legal analysis of the matter by Davis & Associates reveals that the bill is far more insidious than first conventionally thought. Aspects of its language can be interpreted very broadly, inclusive of banning the sale, transportation, and possession of any “evil” feature, on the basis that any individual feature or combination of any of these features can potentially put you on the road to constructing an illegal platform.
Despite some initial stagnation, and alleged hesitation on the part of Senator Yee himself, this bill appears to be moving through the legislature. It needs to be stopped.
