The way I interpret the pending bills regarding magazine capacity, they only apply to semi-automatic firearms? Correct or incorrect.

i.e.-bolt actions that take removable magazines. (AR/etc. mags).

I've read the summaries as well as waded through the actual bills and see nothing concerning anything other than semi-autos. I may have over looked or misinterpreted.

Thank you
Kyle

One bill would make ANY centerfire detachable magazine rifle(shotgun too?) Verboten.

It is sponsored by comrade Steinberg IIRC.

Most welcome, lurking the 2A sub forum will make you into a well read internet lawyer or one hell of a confused/p***ed off numb nuts like me.

Cheers.

SB 347 is the youth shelters bill.

The bill you are thinking of is SB 374. That bill will reclassify all semi-automatic centerfire rifles with a detachable magazine as assault weapons.

A ban on magazines on a bolt-action would make me sad :-(

Actually, looks like it was amended :-)

No long included bolt actions :-D

Still crap and should not be allowed to pass

I'm dense I guess, because all references except paragraph (D) under section 30515 refer to semi-auto rifles and shotguns. I'm going to assume at this point, removable mags, regardless of firearm action is a no-no if over 10 rounds.

@Kyle, based on that law yes; however, I am not sure i've ever seen a bolt action with larger than 10RD mags. Either way, I oppose this bill strongly.

Mossberg MVP uses AR mags, work well with a 20 or 30 rounder.

Back to the magazine capacity question, magazine capacity laws apply to every firearm that uses a magazine. There are three exceptions:
As used in this part, "large-capacity magazine" means any ammunition feeding device with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds, but shall not be construed to include any of the following:
(a) A feeding device that has been permanently altered so that it cannot accommodate more than 10 rounds.
(b) A .22 caliber tube ammunition feeding device.
(c) A tubular magazine that is contained in a lever-action firearm.
For example, the Mossberg MVP that accepts AR mags...you still have to legally own the "high capacity" AR mag to use it in the MVP. Just because the MVP is a bolt-action and wouldn't become an AW under CA law when an 11+ round magazine is used, it doesn't give one an exemption to break the law and buy/import/manufacture/etc. a "high capacity" magazine to use in it. :)

Hope this helps. I didn't see a direct response to the actual capacity/magazine question?
