“Assault weapons — defined as any rifle with a “military style” feature, such as a bayonet or a telescoping stock — that are currently owned would be grandfathered and would have to be registered with the state. Magazines with a capacity of more than 10 rounds and manufactured before 1994, which are currently legal, would have to be turned over to authorities or sold out of state within one year. If a magazine has a capacity between eight and 10, it would have to be retrofitted to only hold seven rounds.”

And yes that is “A” as is in one, from what I can find this includes flash suppressors. muzzle brakes and pistol grips.

It passed 43-18.

I fear that other states will try to build upon this, and who knows how ling it will take SCOTUS to over turn it.

 

I am heading to bed, will try to expand on this tomorrow.
