Hawaii: Governor Signs Trigger Modification Ban Into Law

From NRA-ILA, July 13, 2018

On Monday, July 9th, Governor David Ige signed Senate Bill 2046, which makes it a crime to manufacture, import, sell, gift, lend, or possess certain trigger modifications.  SB 2046 contains vague language that could criminalize firearm modifications that are commonly done by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability.

GOVERNOR IGE SIGNS FIREARMS BILLS, INCLUDING BUMP STOCKS BAN

News Release from Office of the Governor, Jul 9, 2018

HONOLULU – Gov. David Ige signed into law SB 2046 (Act 157) which prohibits the manufacture, importation, sale, transfer and possession of bump fire stocks, multi-burst trigger activators, and trigger cranks – the same devices used by the gunman in the deadly Las Vegas shooting.

“I’m proud that Hawai‘i has one of the lowest rates of gun violence in the nation thanks to our strict gun laws. At the same time, we must protect the rights of gun owners and hunters to own and use guns safely. This legislation will help us uphold the rights of gun owners while keeping guns out of the hands of mentally unfit individuals,” said Gov. Ige.

During the bill signing ceremony at the Hawai‘i State Capitol, Honolulu Police Chief Susan Ballard announced a 30-day amnesty program that allows bump stock owners to turn in the firearm at any police station or to call 9-1-1 for officers to pick it up.

Gov. Ige also signed SB 2436 (Act 158) which requires the voluntary surrender of firearms and ammunition within 7 days after an individual is disqualified from gun ownership. This new law shortens the time period from 30 days to 7 days.

“Both of these measures collectively, improve the health and safety of our community. In domestic violence situations, the period following the threat is critical. Shortening the time period to 7 days will further help to ensure the safety of our families and our communities,” Gov. Ige said.

Act 157 takes effect upon approval.
Act 158 takes effect on July 1.
