Gun Safety Testimony Needed by 3pm this Sunday, February 5th
RAPID RESPONSE IS NEEDED TO SUPPORT GUNS SAFETY IN HAWAII!!
SB1230, which would set up clear permitting requirements before someone is allowed to carry a gun in public and clear boundaries on where someone can and can’t bring those guns, is scheduled for the Public Safety and Intergovernmental and Military Affairs (PSM) committee at 3 PM on Monday, Feb 6th.
TESTIMONY IS NEEDED NO LATER THAN SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 5 AT 3PM.
You can sign up to testify orally (in person or via Zoom) or submit written testimony. Visit this link to submit testimony to the legislature.
If you have any trouble submitting testimony, email me at email@example.com
Here is proposed language you can copy and paste in your testimony, amend any way you see fit, or after you’ve checked the box indicating your support for the bill just write “I support this bill” in the text box.
Since the Supreme Court decided that Hawaii must allow people to carry concealed guns, it is essential to pass this bill which will set clear requirements on:
—who is, and is not, entitled to carry a gun in public
—how our county chiefs of police can verify people applying to carry a gun in public including a thorough background and mental health review
—where people who get permits to carry guns in public can and can’t bring those guns
SB 1230 establishes a strong framework to accomplish this.
Please support this very important bill to help keep Hawaii safe.
