Hawaii: Anti-Gun Bills Scheduled For Committee Vote

posted on March 30, 2016

Four anti-gun bills are currently under consideration in Hawaii’s Senate Judiciary and Labor Committee, which has decided not to accept public testimony for consideration before making a decision. However, you can voice your opinion with committee members here. The bills include: 

HB 625, which would brand sending unwanted text messages and emails as misdemeanor stalking, potentially leading to the denial of the sender’s individual constitutional rights. Since it could be retroactive, gun owners may discover they are banned only when renewing their permit. 

HB 626, which would establish a petty misdemeanor for consuming alcohol while possessing a firearm, although it does not set an alcoholic limit. Without specification, even consuming Nyquil could be a violation.  

HB 2629, which would expand existing registration conditions, where law-abiding Hawaii gun owners are continuously monitored in an FBI database.

HB 2632, which could prohibit firearms ownership by those who have undergone or are undergoing emergency hospitalization, even for something as common as diabetic shock.
