Hawaii State Capitol Building

Hawaii: Gun Buyback Bill Scheduled to be Heard This Week

NRA-ILA

NRA – ILA

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)-  Senate Bill 69, introduced by state Senators Will Espero (D-19), Rosalyn Baker (D-6), Brickwood Galuteria (D-12) and Josh Green (D-3), would appropriate $100,000 to county police departments statewide to establish “gun buyback” programs.

Such gun buyback schemes across the country have proven to be complete failures and a waste of taxpayer dollars.  The average person who voluntarily surrenders a firearm to police is not a criminal and the firearms surrendered are not those misused by criminals.

This bill is scheduled to be heard this Thursday, January 31, in the Senate Public Safety, Intergovernmental and Military Affairs (PSM) Committee and will begin at 3:00 p.m. in conference room 224 of the Capitol.

Please contact members of the Senate PSM Committee TODAY and respectfully express your opposition to SB 69.
