CA SB 249 (The ‘Bullet Button’ Ban) Is Dead

Those of us who call the Golden State home can rejoice today.  That is, thanks in large part to grassroots organizations such as Gun Owners of California and the Calguns Foundation, the bill (SB 249) created to ban bullet buttons and a slew of features and accessories for semi-auto rifles is dead in the water – at least for this year.

News of this major victory for the California gun community came by way of the state’s Assembly Appropriations Committee, which announced that the bill was pulled from the committee’s Thursday agenda and will not be heard by lawmakers.  No hearing means no vote and no vote means that the bill cannot be passed into law.

In a statement the sponsor of the bill, Senator Leland Yee, expressed regret that his pro-gun control measure was removed from the schedule (the actual deadline for the bill is this Friday, if the committee doesn’t vote on it by then, which is almost certain now, it cannot be reintroduced until the 2013 legislative session).-[source]
