Dear Voting Members:
I strongly support resolution 11-263 “Public Shooting Complex in Kalaeloa.”
Training with a firearm on a shooting range is a very critical part of learning to safely operate and handle firearms. It is so important that the state demands citizens have it prior to purchasing a handgun for any purpose. The problem is that currently we have almost nowhere to go and conduct this training.
Please help us solve this problem.
A lack of available training facilities is detrimental to the safety of the public, our families, and our children. It is of the utmost importance that we have additional places to educate ourselves and others on the safe and proper use of firearms. Ultimately, trained citizens are more responsible and are also less likely to be involved in a negligent discharges. Shouldn’t we work together to promote safety?
Lastly, Hawaii firearm ownership is rapidly on the rise. In fact, over the last decade, there were 224,130 firearms registered in our State. This trend of increasing firearm ownership means that every day there are more people and less park. Our only public range, Kokohead Shooting Complex, already has scarce hours and can’t support the public demand. Most importantly, Kokohead’s hours of operation are a burden for West Oahu residents. There is a clear need for a facility in West Oahu.
In the interest of public safety and recreation, I graciously request your support for this resolution.
Please vote yes for Resolution 11-263!
Testify In Person
Also, please make time to come out and testify in person.
We need butts in seats to be blunt.
I have provided you a sample written testimony, so at a minimum, at least send this in or write your own.
