Hawaii: Legislation Restricting Ammunition Sales Scheduled for Committee Hearing

from NRA-ILA, THURSDAY, MARCH 14, 2024

On Friday March 15th, Senate Bill 2845 will receive a hearing in the House Committee for Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs. This bill would implement new age restrictions for ammunition, prohibiting persons under the age of 21 from purchasing or possessing ammunition, with very limited exceptions. Please consider submitting testimony OPPOSING SB 2845 through the Hawaii Legislative website. For help creating an account and submitting testimony, click here.

SB 2845 prohibits persons under the age of 21 from purchasing or possessing ammunition, with limited exceptions. This legislation follows a similar tactic taken by other anti-gun states, pushing laws that discriminates against young adults from lawfully exercising their Second Amendment Rights.

Any person who engages in the sale, transfer, or distribution of ammunition would be required to verify the age of the buyer. Failure to satisfy provisions of SB 2845 could result in a seller or distributor for ammunition being guilty of a misdemeanor.

Once again, please submit testimony opposing SB 2845 through the legislative website and by contacting members of the House Committee for Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs.

News Release from Hawaii Firearms Coalition, March 13, 2024

Aloha, we've got two hearings for three bills coming up on Friday that will accept testimony.

SB 2845 Relating to Firearms: Bans the sale and possession of ammunition to those under the age of 21. While there are exemptions for persons legally engaged in hunting and target shooting, the bill is still unconstitutional and unnecessary.

HB 2342 Relating to Weapons: Prohibits someone from Carrying a Firearm during a Misdemeanor Offense. Simply put if you commit a Misdemeanor and simply have a gun on your person, the crime becomes a Felony. With the addition of numerous gun related Misdemeanors recently this will now elevate these crimes to Felony, such as violating one of the unclear 'Sensitive Places' laws.

HB 2622 Relating to Firearms: This is the voluntary gun buyback bill. As it currently stands it only appropriates funds for future buybacks in the islands. Other than being a waste of Taxpayer money there is not much wrong with the bill itself, but we are trying to shape it from a 'meh' bill to a good bill.
