Gun Safety

Hawai’i has traditionally had one of the lowest rates of gun violence in the country, and the vast majority of us want to keep it that way.  Our mission is to follow bills at the County and State level that impact the sale of weapons and ammunition, the rules and enforcement of licenses and registration, when and where the use of firearms is and is not permitted, protection of children and victims of domestic violence, and the safeguarding of public spaces.
