STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1884-18
RE: S.B. No. 2046
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-Ninth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2018
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Judiciary, to which was referred S.B. No. 2046, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO FIREARMS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The Honolulu Police Department, Keiki Injury Prevention Coalition, Committee on Peace, Justice, and Stewardship of the Environment of the Church of the Crossroads, LGBT Caucus of the Democratic Party of Hawaii, and several individuals testified in support of this measure. A few individuals testified in opposition.
Your Committee has amended this measure by deleting its contents and inserting language from H.B. 1908, H.D. 2 which is a similar measure that criminalizes the manufacture, importation, sale, transfer, and possession of multiburst trigger activators and explicitly includes bump fire stocks and trigger cranks as prohibited devices within the State.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Judiciary that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2046, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 2046, S.D. 1, H.D. 1, and be placed on the calendar for Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary,
SCOTT Y. NISHIMOTO, Chair
