Hawaii: Anti-Gun Bills Go to Governor
From NRA-ILA, April 15, 2021
Earlier this week, the Senate voted to pass House Bill 1366 and House Bill 31. The bills will now be transmitted to Governor David Ige for his consideration. Please contact Gov. Ige and ask him to veto HB 1366 and HB 31.
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.
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.
