Hawaii: 2014 Legislative Session Underway, Pro-gun and Anti-gun Legislation Introduced
From NRA-ILA January 24, 2014
On Wednesday, January 15, the 2014 Hawaii Legislature convened in Honolulu. As the new session proceeds, the NRA will be working hard to further and protect your Second Amendment rights. There are several bills which have carried over from the 2013 session and a number of newly introduced bills, both pro-gun and anti-gun. A particularly egregious bill, introduced by Senator Josh Green (D-3), Senate Bill 2957, would require an individual to obtain their primary physician’s or psychiatrist’s clearance before they are able to exercise their Second Amendment right.
On the calendar for tomorrow in the House Committee on Water & Land is House Bill 1907. HB 1907, introduced by Representative Cindy Evans (D-7), would create a lifetime hunting license for disabled military veterans and recipients of a Purple Heart. This is a great opportunity to give back to those veterans who have sacrificed so much for our country. Please contact members of the House Committee on Water and Land and respectfully urge them to support House Bill 1907. Contact information for the House Committee on Water and Land can be found here.
Your NRA-ILA will continue to keep you updated when more information is available.
