Hawaii: Governor Signs Ivory Ban Legislation

Governor Ige recently signed Senate Bill 2647 into law.  SB 2647 bans the 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, absent narrow and limited exceptions.  SB 2647 goes far beyond law-abiding gun owners and adversely impacts anyone who owns ivory, and products from a wide variety of animals, by significantly diminishing the value of lawfully acquired property.  To read more about ivory ban legislation, please refer to NRA-ILA’s Ivory Ban Fact Sheet. ​​
