Hawaii: Hearing on Legislation to Allow Military Pistol Training to Satisfy Handgun Training Requirements

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

Tomorrow, February 12, the House Committee on Veterans, Military, & International Affairs, & Culture and the Arts is scheduled to hear House Bill 2148 at 8:30 a.m., in House conference room 312.  Introduced by state Representative Clifton K. Tsuji (D-2), HB 2148 would widen the available avenues for satisfying the handgun permit training qualifications in Hawaii.  In addition to the currently accepted training and education methods, HB 2148 would expand acceptable instruction to include military pistol training.

HB 2148 is a positive reform which aims to streamline the process of acquiring a handgun license while honoring the hard work by our military and veterans.  Please contact members of the House Committee on Veterans, Military, & International Affairs, & Culture and the Arts and respectfully urge them to support HB 2148.
