Second Amendment Rally Set for Capitol
By News Release @ 3:09 AM :: 2822 Views :: Second Amendment

News Release from HIFICO

Everyone is invited to this rally who wants a safer Hawaii and to protect our right to keep and bear arms.  We want people to line the front of the State Capitol and tell the legislators and Governor that we are tired of being victims of crime and to stop the infringements on our firearm rights.  

LINK >>> Registration Form - Rally 2020

Also attend the HIFICO Legislative Meeting and Rally Prep on Saturday January 25th 5:30pm at Oahu Veterans Center.  We will go over the legislative bills concerning firearms and talk about the rally and work on sign making.

Want to volunteer?  We need your help.  Email todd@hifico.org.

Themes for the Rally:

 --Be tough on crime

 --Support the right to self-defense

 --Block potential legislation proposals:

  • Limiting rifle magazines to 10 rounds or less
  • Ammunition background checks
  • Removing the 1 year long gun permit – a permit is required for each purchase.
  • Ban or restrictions on firearms manufacturing “Ghost Guns”
  • Restrictions on electric guns and tasers

 --Support good legislation:

  • Issue concealed carry weapons permits
  • Overturn the ban on electric guns and tasers without restrictions
  • Reimbursement of criminal trial fees if found not guilty due to self-defense
  • Stronger protections on use of force against forceful entry of a home or business.
