Senate Bill 2046, sponsored by Senator Karl Rhoads (D-13), would make it a crime to manufacture, import, sell, gift, lend, or possess certain trigger modifications. It contains vague language that could criminalize firearm modifications that are commonly done by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability.
