SB1230 Allows Storage of Loaded Firearms in Vehicle

Hawaii Gov. Green Signs One Anti-Gun Bill & Will Receive Another

News Release from NRA-ILA, May 3, 2023

Last week, Governor Josh Green signed House Bill 426 into law. Yesterday, the House and Senate both voted to adopt the conference committee version of Senate Bill 1230. It will soon be transmitted to Gov. Green’s desk. Please click here to contact Gov. Green and urge him to veto SB 1230.

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.

Senate Bill 1230 purports to make changes in response to the Bruen decision; however, it does little more than show Hawaii’s disdain for the Second Amendment and the ability for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves. This legislation massively expands “gun-free zones” and creates a complicated patchwork of where people can lawfully carry. Further, it creates a permitting system with subjective factors that are ripe for abuse.

Hawaii legislators today voted to pass SB1230. Included in the bill is a provision that allows for the storage of firearms in vehicles--something that puts residents at greater risk of gun violence.

Every year more than 350,000 firearms are stolen from vehicles and today state legislators added Hawaii to the list of states where leavening loaded firearms unattended in a vehicle is legal.

The bill now moves to Governor Josh Green’s desk for signature. Residence are encouraged to call or email his office to demand a veto of this dangerous bill.

S1230 includes some significant changes to Hawaii’s permitting, registration and CCW license applications.

Good news is that they no longer go into effect in July. Due to the diligent work of HIFICO Director Tod Yukutake. These changes won’t happen until 2024.

This give time for the police departments and residents to learn and make changes needed to compete the process.
