Yesterday, the Hawaii Legislature adjourned the 2018 Legislative Session. Senate Bill 2046 is still awaiting action by Governor Ige. Please contact Gov. Ige and politely urge him to veto Senate Bill 2046! Click the “Take Action” button and here to contact Gov. Ige.
Senate Bill 2046, sponsored by Senator Karl Rhoads (D-13), would make it a crime to manufacture, import, sell, gift, lend, or possess certain trigger modifications. It contains vague language that could criminalize firearm modifications that are commonly done by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability.
Thank you to NRA members and Second Amendment supporters that attended committee hearings and contacted legislators throughout the session.
Your NRA-ILA will be back at the Capitol for the 2019 session, and in the meantime, please stay tuned to your email inbox and www.nraila.org for further updates on issues impacting your Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage.
