Kailua, HI -(AmmoLand.com)- The Senate Public Safety Committee, Chairman Senator Clarence K. Nishihara, will hear 3 gun bills Tuesday, March 15, 2016.

Please go to capitol.hawaii.gov , sign in, and click on the orange “submit testimony” button to send testimony on all three bills.

Deadline to submit testimony, 1:20pm Monday March 14.

HB625 Includes misdemeanor stalking among the offenses that disqualify a person from owning, possessing, or controlling any firearm or ammunition. 4th degree stalking can be as little as sending unwanted texts or e-mails, and conviction means permanent loss of gun rights, restorable only by Governor’s pardon. OPPOSE. Support if 4th degree stalking removed.

HB626 Petty misdemeanor for drinking alcohol outside your home while possessing a firearm. Former Mayor Carlisle’s “Deedy” bill. Targets police, as no one else can lawfully carry. OPPOSE. Off duty police carrying is a public safety benefit. The courts may eventually force Hawaii police chiefs to issue carry permits to civilians. Needs an amendment specifying .08 alcohol level.

HB2629 Requires the county police to enroll all gun permit applicants and those registering firearms in “Rap Back,” a FBI data base of individuals arrested anywhere in the US, including on misdemeanor and even some civil charges. A fee of approximately $50 will be charged. The system is used now to screen job applicants for sensitive jobs, like foster parents, etc. No state currently uses it for firearms acquisitions. HRA OPPOSES. It creates a permanent federal list of firearms owners and charges a fee for exercising a civil right.

MAHALO,

HARVEY GERWIG, LEGISLATIVE LIAISON, HRA

The Japanese will never give up their share of Hawaii , just like their firearm laws.

Even if I ever become a rich man, I will never visit Hawaii until people there are free to exercise their right to bear arms.

Disarming citizens is nothing short of tyranny. High time for the people there to throw out their leftist, freedom-hating politicians.

I put Hawaii in the same class as New York City, Chicago, St. Louis, Connecticut, Maryland, California, et al. These unfortunate places are dominated by leftist ideology that forces them to learn the hard way. They’re consumed by political ambition and ignore the simple facts. If they’d focus on the problem, America would discover what leftists are really up to and that access to firearms isn’t part of the problem. By now, a majority know we have a small problem with mental health treatment and institutionalization. But it’s “a” problem, not “the” problem. Fact is “the” problem is vanishing. Here… Read more »

I LEFT HAWAII IN 1979, 4 YEARS OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL, WHEN I WAS 20. NEVER LOOKED BACK. I CAN HONESTLY SAY THE WRITING WAS ON THE PROVERBIAL WALL. LIBERAL AND CORRUPT ARE THE NICE WORDS. LIKE THE LOCALS SAY “LUCKY YOU LIVE HAWAII”. I ENJOY MY LUCKINESS WHEN I CREATE IT. NOT WHEN SOMEBODY DISTRIBUTES IT. TAX THE TOURIST, TAX THE TOURIST. THE TOURIST QUIT COMING AND THE JAPANESE BOUGHT UP THE PRIMO PROPERTIES THAT LOCALS COULDN’T AFFORD TO KEEP. WHY WAS THAT YOU SAY, TAXES!!!

Hawaii may as well be a suburb of Tokyo.
