I appreciate the response.
The critical phrase in the bit you quoted is "Nut/bolt setups retaining fixed magazines"; since the weapon WOULD be able to accept a detachable magazine while the nut/bolt contraption would be loosened or removed, having 'features' at the same time is a problem.

But magazine locks such as the bullet button always operate only with a tool; there is no intermediate state in normal operation. A properly installed magazine lock of that type modifies the weapon so any magazine inserted would require a tool to disassemble it from the gun.

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.
