Hawaii: First Anti-Gun Bill Out of the 2012 Legislative Chute

Friday, February 3, 2012

Senate Bill 2975 is slated to be heard in the Senate Public Safety, Government Operations and Military Affairs Committee (PGM) on Thursday, February 9th at 2:45 p.m. in conference room 224.  Introduced by state Senator Shan Tsutsui (D-4), this anti-gun legislation would mandate that all Hawaii gun owners report the theft of a stolen firearm within 72 hours of discovering that theft.

This legislation serves to penalize victims of crimes by making them criminals for failing to file a report.  Such legislation has no impact on real crime fighting, serves to slow down law enforcement and holds gun owners responsible for the actions of criminals. 

Please contact members of the PGM committee and respectfully urge them to oppose this ill-conceived attempt at crime control. The committee’s contact information can be found below:
