Thank you for your suggestion on pushing our elected officials to change their views on fire arms. I myself have written my local Dem representative and tried to educate her on the mechanical aspects of pistol gripped semi automatic magazine loaded carbines. She is a good woman and I expect her to keep an open mind as did the other legislators who recently denied passage of San Francisco rep Leland Yee's bullet button ban. However, I'd like to ease MV1984's concerns about the legality of his fire arm. Don't worry about it. I live in the Los Angeles area and have fired my hi cap mags, installed a quick release mag button on my 995TS and have seen other banned items like folding stocks and flash suppressors at all my local ranges. Our laws are meant to keep these items from being easily purchased by the masses, but one can easily purchase hi cap mag kits and bullet button kits, folding stocks etc at any gun show and even some brick and mortar stores. Just be sure your weapons are legally stored for travel to and from the range and stay legal in all other aspects of your life. You should be OK with owning the same fire arms as those our neighbors to the east own as long as you aren't already being followed by law enforcement for selling guns, manufacturing drugs or running a prostitution ring.
