See the HB534 thread for more info on that.
Thank you for your support
We almost killed SB301 AWB in Sen Rhoads committee this week with our call in and 1,100 testimony drive. Our faithful gun rights Senators Gabbard and Fevella opposed it. The new Sen Acasio from Hilo area opposed it too thanks to the call in by our Big Island members and she may be a 2A supporter now. Thanks to C&S Hunting Supplies, Cold Country Ammo, J Hara, Kona Guns, S Tokunaga, Stuebs, ZSports, Elite Hunters, Pig Hunters of HI, BAD Company, BI Practical Shooters, BI Trap Club, and M&M on the Big Island for helping out. Sen Kim, normally a staunch antigun senator, voted with reservations. We came very close to having her oppose SB301 which would’ve killed it. Need just a little bit more from that Kalihi/Moanalua district.
Good to see gun stores and gun clubs submitting testimonies now. I’m still going through them but I’ve seen Puuloa Club, Koffin Works, Freedom Coalition, Young Guns, HRA, NSSF. Even MAUI POLICE DEPARMENT opposed it for rights violations. Thanks Security Equipment Corp, I got your testimony in!
FEB 19 1st Lateral Deadline
Feb 19th was the first lateral deadline, any bills with 2 or more committees remaining died, though there are special ways to make them come back. This took out close to half the gun bills, some good, many bad.
