Ammunition Encoding Bill Looming in Hawaii!

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

Please Contact the Members of the House Public Safety Committee Today!

On Thursday, January 29, the Hawaii Public Safety Committee will hear legislation that could have dire consequences for our Right to Keep and Bear Arms in Hawaii.

House Bill 88, introduced by State Representative John Mizuno (D-30), would require all handgun ammunition manufactured or sold in Hawaii to be coded with a serialization number and entered into a statewide database at the time of sale.  Encoded ammunition would be registered to the purchaser and would include the date of transaction, the purchaser’s name, date of birth, driver’s license number, and the serial number of the ammunition.  The possession or sale of non-coded/serialized ammunition would be prohibited. 

An identical measure died in committee last year, but this is a new legislature and we can't take anything for granted!

Please contact the members of the House Public Safety Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to protect the Second Amendment rights of Hawaii’s law-abiding citizens by opposing HB88.
