Today and tomorrow, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold decision making only hearings on two anti-gun bills: HB 426, which aims to bankrupt the firearm industry, and HB 984, to restrict lawful carry. Please consider submitting testimony AGAINST House Bills 426 and 984 through the Hawaii Legislative website. For help creating an account and submitting testimony, click here.
Thursday, March 30th:
House Bill 426 aims to undermine the PLCAA and subject licensed firearm manufacturers and sellers to frivolous lawsuits brought to recover damages for the criminal misuse of their products in order to bankrupt them. It contains vague language regarding what is considered unacceptable conduct of business subject to these lawsuits.
Friday, March 31th:
House Bill 984 greatly restricts the right-to-carry in Hawaii. It 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.
