ARs / Bullet Buttons

I live in California and I want an AR (custom build or whatever I can get my hands on)

Here I know that ARs need a bullet button to release the magazine so you can reload (yea i know. sucks major @$$ )

What I dont know is this also now a federal law? for all ARs? in all states?

Because here is my plan. I have a buddy that lives in Oregon and I am planning on giving him money to buy one or buy all the parts to make a custom one. Once built or purchased he will bring it here to California and I have a hookup that can do a transfer of ownership for cheap. (around $20 bucks im guessing. most other places charge around $70 to $100) That is how I plan on getting around it if it is different AR laws for different states.

I would love some input on this. Other Ideas. Anything will be helpful.

Comply with the law. Even if it sucks.

Violence is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and valorous feeling which believes that nothing is worth violence is much worse. Those who have nothing for which they are willing to fight; nothing they care about more than their own personal safety; are miserable creatures who have no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of those better than themselves.

Oh, be sure to write us to let us know where to send the cake with the hacksaw in it.
