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   22  be repealed until the Legislature enacts a law that adopts,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