Hawaii: Continued Support Needed for Emergency Powers Bill

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Tsunami Warning Highlights Need for Gun Owner Protection

Last week Senate Bill 358 (SD1) unanimously passed out of the House Public Safety Committee with our amendment recommending the removal of the provision that related to compulsory blood identification.  SD358 now heads to House Judiciary Committee where it will be heard tomorrow, March 25 at 2:45 p.m. in House conference room 325.

SB 358 would prohibit a person or government entity from seizing any firearm or ammunition under civil defense, emergency, or disaster relief powers, or during any time of national emergency or crisis, from any individual who is lawfully permitted to possess the firearm or ammunition.  The most recent tsunami scare was a wake-up call to all Hawaii gun owners that protection from confiscation must be a top priority this legislative session. Though imperfect, it is a step in the right direction for Hawaii’s gun-owners. 

Please take the time to contact the members of the House Judiciary Committee TODAY and ask that they move the issue forward - its success depends on you making the effort!
