Great news! It failed. SB 2579 (sponsored by Senator Colleen Hanabusa (D-21)), and HB 3015 (sponsored by Representative Blake Oshiro (D-33)), two bills introduced to ban the sale, transfer, and possession of .50 caliber firearms in Hawaii, were defeated in their assigned committees. Both measures, strongly opposed by NRA and the Hawaii Rifle Association (HRA), failed to receive hearings and consequently, missed the deadlines to be moved ahead.

Except for the .50 ban flaming out it's just another shitty year for hawaii's firearms owners. Maybe if all the mainland CCW holders would boycott hawaii vacations and let HVB (hawaii visitors bureau) know why they were staying away, we might have a better chance of CCW passing.
