Governor David Ige has signed House Bill 1366 and House Bill 31 into law.
House Bill 1366, sponsored by Patrick Branco (D-50), amends language regarding home-built firearms passed last session (Act 74 2020). It bans possession of certain unfinished firearm components, as well as home-built firearms. Current law does not ban possession for those owned prior to the ban passed last year. HB 1366 goes into effect on January 1st, 2022.
House Bill 31, sponsored by Gregg Takayama (D-34), increases Hawaii’s mandatory firearm storage requirements. Safe storage is a matter of personal responsibility and everyone’s situation is different. It’s unreasonable for the law to impose one-size-fits-all solutions. HB 31 went into effect immediately.
