Default FAQs

1 FAQ answer: All the bills take effect January 1, 2017.

2 FAQ answer: the new 'assault weapon' change seems not to affect 'featureless' builds - the definition is now 'not fixed mag' plus at least 1 feature, which was the prior condition. Featureless builds have zero features.

3 FAQ answer: the new ammunition law seems not to affect components for reloading. The language in the bill about bullets and magazines repeats current law, that applies only to prohibited persons.

4 FAQ answer: it is not yet clear whether one's bullet button or other magazine locking device may be removed after the rifle might be registered. I think that may be determined by regulations, which we are not likely to see before 2017.

There is no value at all complaining or analyzing or reading tea leaves to decide what these bills really mean or actually do; any bill with a chance to pass will be bad for gun owners.

The details only count after the Governor signs the bills.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.
