LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 1346, as introduced, Jackson. Firearms: multiburst trigger activators.
Existing law prohibits the manufacture, importation, sale, transfer, or possession of any multiburst trigger activator. Existing law defines a multiburst trigger activator as either a device designed or redesigned to be attached to a semiautomatic firearm, which allows the firearm to discharge two or more shots in a burst by activating the device, or a manual or power-driven trigger activating device constructed and designed so that when attached to a semiautomatic firearm it increases the rate of fire of that firearm.
This bill would state that the existing definition of a multiburst trigger activator includes a bump fire stock or bump fire stock attachment.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO
