Hawaii: NRA Instructor Liability Bill to be Heard in Senate Committee


The NRA thanks you for taking action and contacting state Senate Judiciary Chairman Clayton Hee concerning House Bill 679. Due to your efforts, this important NRA instructor liability protection legislation has been scheduled for a hearing in the state Senate Committee on Judiciary and Labor this Monday, April 2, at 10:00 a.m., in conference room 16 of the State Capitol.

Introduced by state Representative Ken Ito (D-48) and six other state Representatives, NRA-supported HB 679 would exempt firearms instructors certified by the National Rifle Association from liability for injury or damage caused by discharge of their firearms while providing training required to obtain a permit to acquire firearms. At present, volunteer instructors are vulnerable to Hawaii’s “absolute liability” law.

This is an important measure not only for NRA-certified instructors, but also Hawaii gun owners since once liability protection is established, it will open the door for those seeking to gain instructor status and create more opportunities for gun owners to meet the training standards.

Please contact members of the state Senate Committee on Judiciary and Labor TODAY and respectfully urge them to support HB 679. The committee contact information is provided below. Also, if you are able, please attend this hearing and testify in support of HB 679.
