Quality ammo matters. We understand that everyone is making due with what they can get these days but if your going to spend the time and energy to attend a match or a class, it can be worth it to put the same into logistics.

HB891: RELATING TO ELECTRIC GUNS is on its way to the governor and had the intent of legalizing electronic weapons (such as tasers and stun guns). Now, this sounds like a great thing, BUT... Hawaii's anti-self-defense legislators did what they usually do and messed things up.

In their efforts to make tasers and stun guns as hard as possible for law-abiding people to own, they ended up banning the use of commonly used medical devices.

Legislators made a choice (in an effort to be as inclusive as possible), to define electric guns as "any portable device that is designed to discharge electric energy, charge, voltage, or current into the body" with the exception of "automatic external defibrillator used in emergency medical situations." (1)

Because they opted to include an exception in the law, this means that any other item not listed as an exception but meets the definition would legally be considered an electric gun. This is where things get bad, really bad.

There are many medical devices that are portable and designed to discharge energy into a body. Many of these are commonly used, often life-saving/changing pieces of medical equipment. These would include; Pacemakers, Cochlear implants, electrosurgery/electrocautery units, Electronic Pulp testers used by dentists during root canals, electrolysis hair removal devices used by beauticians, Non-automatic defibrillators and, Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation machines used in massage and physical therapy.

This is just a shortlist of easily recognized medical devices that are in common use in the state, and you might think that it's crazy that anyone would believe that these items could be classified as electric guns, and I would agree, but with the wording of this law, that's the reality.

Now would a doctor, dentist, or therapist be charged with a crime (a misdemeanor.") for using one of these items on a patient? Who knows? All it would take is for a patient to have a falling out with a doctor and to make a criminal complaint, and the police would have to investigate.

The bigger risk to medical professionals would be in the form of malpractice lawsuits. Should a patient face complication, injury, or death during a procedure that used a device that could be defined as an electric gun, lawyers would surely bring this up in court. A malpractice lawsuit using such a device could end up costing millions in legal and settlement fees.

Because the law has passed through the legislators and is on its way to the governor, it's too late to make changes to the wording. The only available avenue to stop this bill from becoming law would be for the governor to veto the bill.

If you are a medical professional or concerned citizen, We highly recommend that you contact the governor and ask him to veto this bill (HB891: RELATING TO ELECTRIC GUNS).
You can do so by calling 808 586-2211 OR visiting https://governor.hawaii.gov/contact-us/comments-on-legislation/

We would also request that you contact any association you are part of to make them aware of this bill.

WHY DO WE TELL YOU TO CALL LEGISLATORS?

https://www.facebook.com/hificoorg/videos/2887825391490231/

03/03/2021

Call your district Senator and Representative! Everyone's did a good job at testifying this year with the active gun bills being whittled and watered down to these main five. The gun bills have passed their first round of committees and are headed to a floor vote starting March 4th through March 11th before crossover. We need everyone to call and email your district Senator and Representative and tell them you support/oppose these bills.

Please be respectful on your calls as we need legislators and their staff on our side.

Learn more on our website at www.hifico.org/votemar2021. Find your legislator at https://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/fyl/.

HIFICO will have a FB Live and ZOOM discussion on Thursday March 4th at 8pm to go over these bills and answer any questions. https://zoom.us/j/94233453160

HB534 is again up for testimony. In the last PDP hearing, the wording of the bill was changed (due to overwhelming testimony) to provide the people of Hawaii a clear Right to Self Defense. AS SUCH WE NOW SUPPORT THIS BILL

Visit www.HIFICO.org/hb534 to submit testimony and SUPPORT your right to self-defense. YOU MUST SUBMIT TESTIMONY AGAIN FOR EVERY HEARING SCHEDULED FOR THE SAME BILL

For too long, Hawaii’s law-abiding citizens have been the victims of violent criminals. Laws seem to favor criminal actors over the rights of victims, requiring them to surrender their property and/or run away rather than defend themselves, their home, business, or property.

This Right to Self Defense bill now provides for law-abiding citizens to use force to protect themselves, their families, and loved ones from harm.

The bill reads,

"The use of force upon or toward another person is justifiable when the actor believes that this force is immediately necessary to defend oneself, one's property, or another person against the use of unlawful force by the other person on the present occasion."

"A person employing protective force may estimate the necessity thereof under the circumstances the actor believes to be occurring when the force is used without retreating, surrendering possession, doing any other act which the actor has no legal duty to do, or abstaining from any lawful action."

"An actor who uses force, including deadly force, as justified and permitted under subsections (1) and (2) is immune from criminal prosecution and civil action for the use of the force, unless the force was determined to be unlawful."

These changes to the law would allow a victim to use enough force to stop a person who is committing a crime against them. It would also ensure that this person does not face criminal or civil legal action should their use of force be justified.

SUBMIT TESTIMONY for JHA Hearing before 2-23-21 2pm. Zoom request deadline is 2-22-21 2pm.
