Can anyone explain this new rule clarification?

https://www.news-leader.com/story/ne...dc/4625634002/


"The*new definition provides more specificity," Jerek said in an email.
"Handgun: Any firearm originally designed, made, and intended to fire a projectile (bullet) from one (1) or more barrels when held in one (1) hand, and having a short stock designed to be gripped by one (1) hand at an angle to and extending below the line of the bore(s), with a barrel less than sixteen inches (16) in length, measured from the face of the bolt or standing breech, and an overall length of less than twenty-six inches (26); excluding any firearm designed or redesigned, made or remade, and intended to be fired from the shoulder."



Did they just ban AR style pistols for hunting?

How is it different from the old definition?

The quote, alone, seems to mean you can't make a pistol out of what was a rifle, which is already the case with ARs at the federal level.

Ya really need to read AND understand the whole article before flying off the handle.

They would be better to set a minimum caliber for deer.
In Virginia Big Game (Deer, Bear, Turkey) require a caliber of .23 or larger.

It is an older rule that originated well before decent .223 bullets for larger game existed.
You would have been using an FMG or soft point (more of a varmint style bullet).
Neither is optimal for deer sized game.
