Hawaii: Legislature Adjourns Sine Die

Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- On Thursday, May 2nd 2019, the Hawaii Legislature adjourned from the 2019 Legislative Session.  Both Senate Bill 600 and Senate Bill 1466 are still under consideration by Governor Ige.  Please continue to contact Gov. Ige and politely urge him to veto Senate Bill 600 and Senate Bill 1466!  Click the “Take Action” button and here to contact Gov. Ige.

Take Action Button

Senate Bill 600, introduced by Senator Clarence Nishihara (D-17), would raise the minimum age to transport a firearm into the state to the age of 21.  By raising the age for firearm importation, persons who have lawfully acquired firearms outside of Hawaii who are traveling to the state for purposes of hunting, target competition, or even relocating would be discriminated against based on their age and denied their constitutional rights.

Senate Bill 1466, introduced by Senator Karl Rhoads (D-29), would create Gun Violence Protective Orders (GVPO).  A GVPO would be issued not because a person has been convicted of a crime or adjudicated mentally ill, but instead on third party allegations.  This legislation lacks strong due process protections and contains low evidentiary standards that fall well below the norm for removing fundamental constitutional rights.

Thank you to NRA members and Second Amendment supporters that attended committee hearings and contacted legislators throughout the session. 

Your NRA-ILA will be back at the Capitol for the 2020 session, and in the meantime, please stay tuned to your email inbox and www.nraila.org for further updates on issues impacting our Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage.

      1. Maybe they want some of our illegals…..Trump should send about 40-50,000 while there waiting for their court appearence.

      1. That’s the damn truth….Who would want to live there …My wife has mentioned many times how much she would like to visit Hawaii….My response has always been, “I’ve been there twice (military) and we live in a subtropical area of Texas, have just as many palm trees or more than Hawaii, there are just as many exotic brown skin people living here, very economical gasoline prices and one of the biggest, cleanest & most beautiful beaches in the USA, plus we are a very popular tourist destination …and why would anyone want leave their tropical home to spend a few, expensive days on a remote island, buying over priced T-shirts and a straw hat….when the very same thing is found here in our corner of exotic tropical paradise ??
