LEGISLATIVE REPORT, MAY, 2014, by Max Cooper

Hawaii --(Ammoland.com)- The Hawaii State Legislature has adjourned for the year. Once again, no restrictive firearms bills passed.

HB849, amending the Governor’s emergency powers, passed, leaving the protection against seizure of firearms in HRS 134-7.2 intact.

HB2246, providing for reporting court commitments to the NICS system and the Hawaii AG for use in determining disability for possession of firearms passed. The process for court directed relief of such disability likewise passed with the AG’s language over HRA’s and NRA’s preferred language, but still a good bill.

HB1902, originally providing for no net loss of hunting areas, amended to require a hunting advisory committee, regrettably died in conference committee.

Mahalo to the Legislators who worked in favor of your gun rights and hunting heritage. Please be ready to support them in the fall elections. A big mahalo to all who lobbied on our issues.
