News Release from HIFICO
Everyone is invited to this rally who wants a safer Hawaii and to protect our right to keep and bear arms. We want people to line the front of the State Capitol and tell the legislators and Governor that we are tired of being victims of crime and to stop the infringements on our firearm rights.
