“It’s a bill that will reduce the risk of gun violence in our communities by strengthening the state’s firearms laws, and by establishing reasonable safeguards. Among other things, SB1230 will promote gun safety by establishing new training and education requirements,” said Nick McLean, Hawaii deputy solicitor general.
