CALL TO ACTION
REQUEST FOR TESTIMONY
FOR GUN SAFETY IN C&C HONOLULU
The US Supreme Court recently ruled that Americans have a right to carry guns in public for self-defense. Hawaii has traditionally had low incidences of gun violence, partly due to strict laws on issuing of permits to carry in public. Under state law, permits are issued by the police chiefs of the counties, which are now amending their regulations to accord with the court ruling. The next step is the issuance of ordinances by county councils regarding restrictions on where guns cannot be carried in public.
The Honolulu City Council is considering Bill 57, which proposes a city
ordinance in which guns are not permitted in
- City-, federal-, or state-owned buildings or offices
- Places where there are children
- Places related to voting
- Public transportation
- Free speech rallies and events
- Property belonging to private business or charitable organizations without the owner’s consent
This ordinance is a crucial step in our fight to keep Hawaii safe. Gun
advocates are being loud and aggressive in their opposition to this bill.
The City Council needs the support of all of us who believe that this ordinance should be passed.
