Hawai`i gun lobby shoots down gun bills

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Hawai`i gun enthusiasts are organizing to stop gun control bills from gaining any traction at the state Legislature. Hawai`i Rifle Association President Harvey Gerwig said Wednesday that more than 400 people successfully opposed a bill that would
have made firearm instructors liable for accidents that occur during training.
Representative Karl Rhoads, a Democrat who chairs the Judiciary committee and supported the bill, says he doubts the chances of similar measures this session after seeing the gun
lobby's effective opposition. Gerwig says the organization is continuing to mobilize community members to ensure pro-gun voices are heard. He says proposals to ban assault weapons and to increase gun registration rules impede on Hawai`i residents' second amendment rights.
