because it has a folding stock does not make it a pistol, the gun is not inteded or designed to be shot from one hand, if it has a stock on it its a rifle,the folding stock is intended for storage, This bill is pretaining to a signaling device( flare gun)???
Why not revise the definition fo firearm, too? BB and pellet guns fall under the definition of "firearm" if they have a rifled barrel, and most of them do.
What real problem does this solve?
