Default Bullet Button?

Ok, can someone please tell me what a bullet button is? I keep hearing the term but don't know what it means.

I bought a ar a few years ago and living in California I had heard of it but never really paid much attention cause I'm for Texas and never had to deal with any of that stuff there. I got home and was messing with my new toy and could not figure out how to eject the mag so i took the rifle back to where I bought it told them my problem they said you didn't get a bullet button when they got me one I had to laugh its a little button with a magnet on it and in calif if you have the BB in the rifle while you have it in your car it is a class 3 felony in calif I would love to move out of this state I hate it here but my job keeps me here for awhile any ways

Honest question.

I'm not advocating breaking laws, I'm honestly curious, as I've been blessed with never seeing a bullet button.

How easy is it to get around the bullet button?
Could you just pop in a homemade grommet / plug that allows it to function like a real release?

I'm assuming its a mag release button 'cover', machined or welded to the gun that has a small hole to allow a tool to be inserted into said hole to depress the actual release button.

Okay. I just watched the YouTube video...

Yeah, how ****ing moronic!!!!!

As an engineer, what angers me, is that some engineer probably proposed that awful idea. I highly (super mega ultra highly) doubt that a liberal retard thought up that idea.

Yeah, because firing at unarmed people for 20 minutes before cops arrive is going to be impeded by that stupid thing.

The whole bullet button thing was created by the manufacturers to get around the CA law that said the mags had to be fixed to the receiver and a tool was required to detatch them.

I know it's a real ballbuster but when you think about it, it's actually kind of ingenious.

They make some kind of device to help get around the bullet button. I think it just goes around your finger, and let you push the button without having use a bullet. Someone here had one, and they said it takes like a second longer to change mags with it than it does with a regular AR.
So it takes 2 seconds to change a mag instead of 1. Typical liberal logic.
