Today, at 3:00PM, the Senate Public Safety Committee will hear Senate Bill 1230. This bill is Hawaii’s attempt to ignore the U.S. Supreme Court’s Bruen ruling from last year, which affirmed the right-to-carry, and is similar to what other anti-gun states have passed or currently have active in their legislatures. Please consider submitting testimony AGAINST SB 1230 through the Hawaii Legislative website. For help creating an account and submitting testimony, click here.
Senate Bill 1230 massively expands “gun-free zones” where law-abiding citizens are left defenseless and also prohibits carrying firearms on private property unless the owner gives affirmative permission. In addition, it creates new subjective criteria for the issuance of carry permits to allow authorities to arbitrarily deny applicants.
Again, please consider submitting testimony AGAINST SB 1230.
