On March 1st, at 9:30AM, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hear Senate Bill 1230, to attempt to ignore the U.S. Supreme Court’s Bruen ruling from last year that affirmed the right-to-carry. Please consider submitting testimony AGAINST SB 1230 through the Hawaii Legislative website. For help creating an account and submitting testimony, click here.
Senate Bill 1230 massively expands “gun-free zones” where law-abiding citizens are left defenseless and also prohibits carrying firearms on private property unless the owner gives affirmative permission. Citizens who carry firearms are required to maintain insurance coverage of at least $100,000 per person and $300,000 per incident and carry proof of insurance. In addition, the bill creates new subjective criteria for the issuance of carry permits to allow authorities to arbitrarily deny applicants.
Again, please consider submitting testimony AGAINST SB 1230.
