SB100 Change in size of pellet/bullet for air/spring guns
« on: June 21, 2019, 10:23:34 PM »
SB100 changes the size of a pellet, BB, or slug allowed in air/spring guns to .25 caliber.  This means that .22 caliber air guns will be allowed if passed.  As of 6/12/19 the Judicial Committee has 3 of 5 "on it's merits" and 0 "favorable" and 0 "unfavorable".  This is sponsored by Dave Lawson and seven others.  SB100 is on the "ready list' for consideration.

I don't even comprehend this bill.  Why was it introduced??  larger caliber air guns might require a different response than was described above.

Iíd like to see this bill get passed.  A .22 cal pellet is much more effective on small varmints than the .177 pellet.

I have a kids regular BB rifle, that I've had for 50 years. How is it affected by this regulation. Am I now a crimmimiinal?

No.  BB and .177 pellets are permitted by the existing and proposed laws.
