Gun legislation passes state Senate
BURBANK -- Legislation by state Sen. Jack Scott (D-Burbank)
designed to protect people from unsafe handguns passed the Senate on
Monday by a 22-16 vote.
Scott’s bill, SB 489, requires that new handgun models introduced
after Jan. 1, 2005 have either a chamber load indicator or a magazine
The bill also requires that after Jan. 1, 2007, new handgun models
be equipped with both devices. A load indicator shows a gun owner
whether a bullet is in the chamber. A magazine safety disconnect
prevents the gun from being fired when the magazine is removed, even
when a bullet remains in the chamber.
The bill now goes to the Assembly Public Safety Committee.
