This would make the machine guns that are allowed to be pretty much useless!

I also doubt it will pass. This is just grandstanding by some in the legislature, trying for their moment in the spotlight. But it is odd that in three areas it specifically says that passage of this bill creates an emergency.

I believe an initiative that was on the ballot in November was passed and allows the governor to declare "an emergency" with very little restriction, and then he does not have to abide by the budget controls. So perhaps this is a rider being attached to a lot of bills to establish a vague, undefined, indeterminate emergency so the State does not have to live within the budget?

Only politicians dream up this sort of stuff.
