House Bill 1908, introduced by Representative Gregg Takayama (D-34), would charge a person with a felony who “manufactures or causes to be manufactured, imports into the State, keeps for sale, or offers or exposes for sale, or who gives, lends, or possesses” certain trigger modifications. 

The broad language of this bill could encompass many common modifications done by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability.  

House Bill 1908 passed the House Committee on Judiciary with amendments.  HB 1908 will now be heard by the House Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce on February 21st at 2:00PM.

Again, please contact members of the House Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce and urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 1908.
