House Bill 2996 (Ito, D-48), a measure that would lift the greater than 10 round magazine ban, has passed out of the Public Safety and Military Affairs Committee and is slated to be heard before the House Judiciary Committee. The deadline to be heard in the committee is Friday March 3, so it is vital that NRA members contact the Chair, the Co-Chair and full Judiciary Committee members, and ask that they hear the bill before the deadline. It is also important that members of the pro-gun community testify in person before the committee!
If you want immediate e-mail notification of the hearing (if the bill is scheduled to be heard), please contact Max Cooper of the Hawaii Rifle Association at firstname.lastname@example.org.
