Hawaii Legislative Update!

Friday, February 10, 2006

A coalition of law enforcement groups has proposed the language written in SB 2579—a ban on the sale and possession of .50 caliber rifles and ammunition.  As you know, these rifles are used for sporting purposes, but have been demonized in the press and by anti-gun groups looking for the next gun control scheme.  SB 2579 is an outright ban that, if signed, will take effect immediately.  Owners of the affected firearms would have to remove the firearm from the state, surrender it to law enforcement, or have it destroyed.  It is vital that NRA members and friends in the pro-gun community call their state legislators at (808) 587-0666 and ask them to oppose this proposed gun ban. 

Other anti-gun legislation includes SB 2408/HB 2522, which would exempt government entities from the definition of “owner” in state law that imposes a strict liability on firearms owners for injury or damage caused by that firearm.

SB 2531, the Right-to-Carry bill introduced by Senators Sam Slom (R-8) and Gordon Trimble (R-12), may be heard in the “Senate Intergovernmental Affairs Committee” as early as next Tuesday, February 14.  Please contact the Chair of the committee, Senator David Ige (D-16) and ask him for a hearing on SB 2531.  Also, respectfully ask for SB 2531 to be passed out of committee.  Senator Ige can be reached by calling (808) 586-6230, or by e-mail at sendige@capitol.hawaii.gov. 

In addition, please contact your legislator at (808) 587-0666 and urge him or her to oppose SB 2408/HB 2522 and support SB 2531!  To get involved with the Hawaii Rifle Association, please contact Max Cooper at (808) 261-8988.
