Stop SB 249

SB 249, a bill introduced by State Senator LeLand Yee is the latest, and potentially most damaging, anti-gun bill currently before the legislature.

When first introduced it seemed innocuous enough: it seemed to be a bill banning the Mag Magnet. Use of this device with a bullet-button equipped rifle could make that rifle into a CA-banned assault-rifle, which is illegal to posses without registering it with the DOJ.

SB 249 attempts to ban possession of "conversion kits", but  it contains language that would, intentionally or unintentionally, make the definition "conversion kits" so broad as to make thousands of legally possessed rifles today, illegal upon the effective date of this law.

To see how this is so, please read this legal analysis made by Davis & Associates of SB 249 commissioned by the Calguns Foundation and the California Association of Federal Firearms Licensees. Please read the legal scenarios with particular care as they really make clear how SB 249 can cause untold and innumerable problems California gun owners.
