Hawaii: Last Chance to Stop Bill Requiring Background Checks on Legally Possessed Firearms
Posted on April 10, 2013
Senate Bill 69 passed in the House Judiciary Committee by a 3-1 vote last week and will be considered by the House Committee on Finance this Thursday, March 28 at 3:15 PM in House Conference Room 308. Introduced by state senators Will Espero (D-19), Rosalyn Baker (D-6), Brickwood Galuteria (D-12) and Josh Green (D-3), SB 69 was originally a gun “buyback” bill, but has evolved into a mandatory background check bill on already acquired firearms. Please contact members of the House Finance Committee TODAY in opposition to SB 69.
