Hawaii: Anti-Gun Bills Eligible For Votes In The Senate

News Release from NRA-ILA, April 5, 2019

Yesterday, the Senate gave notice that House Bill 720 could be voted on as early as today, April 5th.  Additionally, the House passed Senate Bill 600, which now heads to the Senate where it will be eligible for a concurrence vote.  Please contact your state Senator and urge them to OPPOSE SB 600 and HB 720.  Click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state Senator. 

Senate Bill 600, introduced by Senator Clarence Nishihara (D-17), would raise the minimum age to transport a firearm into the state to the age of 21.  By raising the age for firearm importation, persons who have lawfully acquired firearms outside of Hawaii who are traveling to the state for purposes of hunting, target competition, or even relocating would be discriminated against based on their age and denied their constitutional rights.  SB 600 was passed with amendments by the House on April 4th. 

House Bill 720, introduced by Representative Chris Lee (D-51), would set a one-size-fits-all requirement for gun owners to report lost or stolen firearms within 24 hours, further victimizing gun owners who have suffered a loss or theft of their property.  HB 720 was passed by the Senate Committee on Judiciary and will be eligible for a vote on the Senate floor. 

Again, please click the “Take Action” button above and urge your state Senator to OPPOSE SB 600 and HB 720.

Hawaii: Anti-Gun Bills Pass Committee, Age Restriction Bill Eligible for a Floor Vote

News Release from NRA-ILA, April 3, 2019

Last week, the Hawaii state House Committee on Judiciary passed anti-gun bills Senate Bill 600 and Senate Bill 1466.  Both bills are now eligible for the floor and SB 600 could receive a vote as early as tomorrow.  Additionally, the Senate Committee on Judiciary passed HB 720, which will also be eligible for a floor vote.  Please contact your state Representative and urge them to oppose SB 600 and SB 1466.  Click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state Representative. 

Senate Bill 600, introduced by Senator Clarence Nishihara (D-17), would raise the minimum age to transport a firearm into the state to the age of 21.  By raising the age for firearm importation, persons who have lawfully acquired firearms outside of Hawaii who are traveling to the state for purposes of hunting, target competition, or even relocating would be discriminated against based on their age and denied their constitutional rights.  SB 600 was passed by the House Committee on Judiciary and is eligible for a vote on the House floor as early as tomorrow, April 4th. 

Senate Bill 1466, introduced by Senator Karl Rhoads (D-29), would create Gun Violence Protective Orders (GVPO).  A GVPO would be issued not because a person has been convicted of a crime or adjudicated mentally ill, but instead on third party allegations.  This legislation lacks strong due process protections, contain low evidentiary standards, and falls well below the norm for removing fundamental, constitutional rights.  SB 1466 was passed by the House Committee on Judiciary and will be eligible for a vote on the House floor. 

House Bill 720, introduced by Representative Chris Lee (D-51), would set a one-size-fits-all requirement for gun owners to report lost or stolen firearms within 24 hours, further victimizing gun owners who have suffered a loss or theft of their property.  HB 720 was passed by the Senate Committee on Judiciary and will be eligible for a vote on the Senate floor. 

Again, please click the “Take Action” button above and urge your state Representative to OPPOSE SB 600 and SB 1466.
