Bump stocks now prohibited

Navy Region Hawaii Public Affairs

On July 9, Hawaii outlawed bump stocks, multiburst trigger activators, trigger cranks, or other devices designed to help semiautomatic firearms fire like automatic weapons.

Any person in the state who manufactures, causes to be manufactured, imports into the state, keeps for sale, offers or exposes for sale, gives, lends or possesses any bump stock, multiburst trigger activator, or trigger crank will be guilty of a class C felony.

Under a state amnesty program, owners have until Aug. 8 to surrender any such device to Honolulu Police Department by delivering it to the nearest police station or calling 911 to arrange for an officer to pick it up.

For more information, contact Lt. Cmdr. Louis Butler, staff judge advocate, at 473-1793 or email louis.butler@navy.mil.
