Hawaii: Help is needed from gun safety proponents on two bills

A gun violence protection order bill could reach a full vote by the Hawaii full House of Representatives today (4/09). Also, a bill requiring the reporting of lost or stolen guns is before the Governor for final signature. Concerned citizens can make two quick calls to help offset the calls from NRA gun nuts by asking for support of these bills.

The Bills

👍 Senate Bill 1466 would create a Gun Violence Protective Order. It would allow guns to be removed from a dangerous person already under protection orders.
