Indivisible Hawaii wants legislation declaring all of Hawaii to be a “sensitive place” by formally establishing it as a “Safe Place State”. This would not be the first time for this to happen. It follows the example of Wyatt Earp who, when he was marshall of Tombstone, he told everyone the law was to “leave all guns at the edge of town”. It worked for him and it can work for Hawaii, too.
Months ago the US Supreme Court okayed open carry except in “sensitive places”. As you are reading this, Hawaii’s legislature is deciding what to do. If we don’t act now, we could soon see open carry guns in our grocery stores and on our sidewalks.
“Let’s Talk Politics will host special guests Barbara Shimei of Indivisible Hawaii and Brady Hawaii’s Deborah Nehmad who will fill you in and help you make your voice heard. There is still time for the Legislature to pass a bill that passes muster with the Supreme Court while it preserves the gun-free quality of life in Hawaii. The issue is complicated and solutions are hard to see.
What do you think is reasonable? If you want to learn more and hear what others are thinking, please join our Zoom call.
Barbara Shimei will update you on the issue, the players, the bills and other details inside the halls of Hawaii’s leadership. She will also show you how to write testimony so your thinking will go into the formal record where it will be read by decision makers. Our gun safety advocates in the Legislature really need to hear from you!
Deborah Nehmad will tell us what gun safety looks like at the national level and recommend actions for Hawaii. You will also learn what gun safety looks like at the national level and discuss other gun related bills that might be considered in Hawaii.
Join us for Indivisible Hawaii’s first session of “Let’s Talk Politics” since the midterms. Listen, decide and then write testimony giving your views.
