After weeks of discussion on if House Bill 2999, sponsored by State Representative Blake Oshiro (D-51), would be revived and passed, it was deferred in the House Judiciary Committee yesterday.
After being referred the first time, Representative Oshiro revised HB2999 to only include a ban on the sale and possession of .50 caliber BMG rifles and ammunition. Despite being satisfactorily revised by the bill sponsor, HB2999 is still an attack on our Right to Keep and Bear Arms. HB2999 faced opposition from the pro-gun legislators on the committee, and will likely not come back up this session.
We’ll keep you posted. Thank you for all the emails and phone calls made by the pro-Second Amendment community in Hawaii.
