    6  read:
    7         790.301 AR-15 assault rifles; moratorium; study.—Upon this
    8  act becoming a law, a moratorium is imposed on the sale,
    9  delivery, and transfer of all AR-15-style assault rifles and it
   10  must remain in effect for a minimum period of 2 years. The
   11  Department of Law Enforcement is directed to conduct a study to
   12  determine whether banning the AR-15-style assault rifle should
   13  be permanent or whether regulations can sufficiently be
   14  implemented to eliminate or significantly reduce the risk of
   15  mass shootings posed by the availability of AR-15-style assault
   16  rifles. The department shall submit its resulting findings and
   17  recommendations to the Governor, the President of the Senate,
   18  the Speaker of the House or Representatives, and the Majority
   19  and Minority Leaders of the Senate and the House of
   20  Representatives. The moratorium imposed by this section may not
   21  be repealed until the Legislature enacts a law that adopts,
   22  modifies, or rejects the department’s recommendations.
