WE WIN AGAIN! (ROUND 2)

THE HOUSE COMMITTEE ON JUDICIARY PASSED House Bill 248, repealing the state ban on more than10 round magazines, unanimously, without amendments. It goes to the whole House for a vote and then "crosses" to the Senate.

Mahalo to all those who testified and sent testimony and special mahalo to Rep. Ken Ito who encouraged Chair Waters and the Members to pass the bill.


Meanwhile, the Senate has scheduled their version of the bill, SB702, in Senator Clayton Hee's Judiciary and Labor Committee, Monday at 9am. Details to follow.

Since there's the SB702 already in progress, does HB248 still need to go through the Senate, or is it a simultaneous thing?

Great news, any chance Gov. Lingle will veto this bill?
