It's vague as does not delineate between different type's' of guns - thus, you can expect it will effect ALL the rifles and similar types you mentioned above with detachable mags. Slippery-slope..

In short; my interpretation of the bill in regards to your question is - Yes.

And a good analysis helps the authors.

How about a moratorium on this kind of question until September 1?

If it gets that far, that's when it has to be in the Governor's in-box, and cannot be changed by the Legislature.

The bill is not in its final form - so it's impossible to be certain what it will contain.

Appropriations could amend it. Assembly Floor could amend it. Senate could refuse to concur with Assembly amendments.

So, 'Will this be affected?' kinds of questions are not answerable with any confidence.
