Hawaii: Senate Committee Hearing Pistol Permitting & Registration Bill
From NRA-ILA, February 2, 2022
On Thursday, February 3, the Senate Committee on Public Safety, Intergovernmental, and Military Affairs will hear Senate Bill 3043, to make changes to Hawaii’s pistol permitting and registration system. This is in order to comply with the recent Yukutake v. Connors court case decision.

Senate Bill 3043 extends the time period in which an approved pistol permit may be used to make an acquisition from the current ten-days, to 30-days. In addition, it eliminates the requirement that authorities physically examine firearms upon registration for transfers by licensed dealers. Registrations of previously un-serialized firearms, private transfers, and firearms brought in from out-of-state are still subject to inspection.
