Hawaii: Anti-Gun Legislation Moves to the House Floor

Two anti-gun bills are eligible to be heard on the House floor as early as tomorrow, March 8.  Please contact your state Representative immediately to voice your strong opposition to these anti-gun bills.  Click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state Representative!


HB 2502 would ban the import, sale, purchase, barter, and possession with intent to sell of any ivory (defined to include mammoth ivory), ivory product, rhinoceros horn, rhinoceros horn product and products from various other animal species.  In order for a firearm containing ivory to be legal, the ivory component would have to make up less than twenty percent of the firearm’s volume.  Accurately measuring the “volume” of a complex mechanical object such as a firearm or of small, non-removable ivory components such as inlaid decorations would be a daunting task.  Further, this requirement fails to take into account that many variations of ivory pieces which may be present on a firearm.  While the NRA applauds serious efforts to stop poaching and the illegal wildlife trade, banning the trade and sale of legally owned, pre-ban ivory will not save one elephant.  To read more about ivory ban legislation, please refer to NRA-ILA’s Ivory Ban Fact Sheet.

HB 2632 would expand the list of possible prohibited possessors to include anyone who has undergone or is undergoing emergency hospitalization.  This expansion for emergency hospitalization is vague and could entrap a person who has suffered something as common as diabetic shock to suddenly lose their Second Amendment rights, without due process of the law, simply for receiving care.  Additionally under this bill, individuals are required to surrender firearms immediately, or else law enforcement may seize firearms, all without due process.
