Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- Hawaii Senator Karl Rhoads (D-13) introduced legislation that would ban modifications commonly made to firearms by law-abiding citizens.  SB 2046 is currently pending a committee referral.

Senate Bill 2046​ is similar to federal legislation proposed by anti-gun California U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).  SB 2046 would make it a crime to own, manufacture, possess, sell, barter, trade, gift, transfer or acquire a firearm accessory or any other device, part or combination of parts that is designed to or functions to accelerate the rate of fire of a semi-automatic firearm.

In addition, SB 2046 would also criminalize installing, removing, or altering parts of a firearm with the intent to accelerate the rate of fire.

The broad and overreaching provisions of SB 2046 could criminalize firearm modifications such as competition triggers, muzzle brakes, and ergonomic changes that are commonly done by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability.

Please contact your Senator and urge them to OPPOSE this legislation.  Continue to check your inbox and www.NRAILA.org​ for the latest updates on issues impacting your Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage in Hawaii.

    1. An E-Mail to our congressional legislators:
      I oppose the pending SB 2046 and all anti-gun legislation.
      Please vote against this and all other anti-gun legislation.
      Please promote and sign into law all pro-gun legislation.
      I want you to promote concealed carry reciprocity for all 50 states and all us territories.
      If our state issued drivers licenses are honored from state to state, so should our right to carry concealed.
      The biggest killer of people is the outlaw aggressors being armed and the law abiding victims being disarmed.
      I also think the Gun Control Laws that impede the second amendment should be abolished.
      Like the gun control acts of 1921, 1934, 1968, 1986, they impact the law abiding, not the criminals.
      I also want you so support the legalization of suppressors, by excluding them from the NFA restrictions.
      They are a safety device that help protect your hearing.
      I also feel that short barreled rifles and shotguns should be removed from the NFA restrictions as well.
      If you can have pistols, then what’s the point of the short barrel restrictions.
      Bottom line is our legislators need to stop punishing the law abiding, for the acts of a few.
      As my elected official I expect you to hold the line on all anti-gun legislation.
      Beyond that, thank you for your service.

    2. When Alaska and Hawaii joined the Union in 1959 they each directly copied the U.S. Second Amendment with one comma. Alaska understands and honors the Second Amendment and Hawaii does not.
      The HELLER and McDonald decisions and the Fourteenth Amendment need to be enforced in Hawaii and other 9th circus states.
      Passage of HR 38 by the Senate so President Trump can sign it into law is mandatory. Until HR 38 is law I will stop making donations to RNC and Senate Republicans.

    3. When Feinsteins’ security detail begins carrying sling shots I will believe her. And if they do that, we need a bill limiting the draw weight of the sling shot to stop possible collateral damage. Another bill would also include the size and weight of the shot being used. And last, but not least, a three day workshop on safety measures and competent accuracy qualifications. Perhaps an IQ test to see if the security detail is smarter than the senator. Something in the 95 range should suffice.

    4. While I didn’t care for the fact that I was not going to be able to carry as I normally do, my wife and I and my oldest son and his wife went to Hawaii last September. We spent four days on Maui and four days on the Big Island. At no point during our visit did I think that I needed a gun or even a knife; though I was carrying a knife. One thing I noticed there is that there was a virtual lack of a certain demographic found on the mainland. This may or may not have contributed to the serenity there.

    5. Seeing how Hawaii is nothing but a ‘suburb’ of Tokyo this shouldn’t surprise anyone. How do you say Asian influence without being labeled a “Racist”?

    6. Hawaii is in the middle of nowhere, relies strongly on tourist dollars to survive. Just don’t go there until they adhere to the 2nd amendment.

        1. We’re only a couple of generations away from anybody remembering what it used to mean to be American. The Don’t Think Just Feels made sure of that when we let them take over our “education” system,” at all levels national, state and local. Just as the Lost left are activists in every other area we stock up on ammo and go to our jobs while they are ACTIVE in politics and government at every level. Every gun owner needs to be an activist. We need to be active in cities, counties, states, and national government. We need to especially retake school boards in every district we can.
          We need to teach our children gun safety, gun rights, gun responsibilities, and civic responsibilities and let them know why we no longer watch the NFL, why we no longer shop at Target, why we no longer go to theaters, restaurants and stores which prohibit the legal carry of guns, etc, etc, etc.

          1. @CE, Apparently, we need to teach our children how to read, do math, and cursive handwriting as well. Public schools are so busy teaching self esteem, and “Sally has two Mommies” that they don’t have time to teach the fundamentals.
