We’ve been producing journalism in the public interest for 10 years, with the aim of making Hawaii a better place, and we have no plans to stop any time soon. But we need your help to keep this critical work going strong. For a limited time, donations to Civil Beat will be doubled, thanks to a matching gift from the NewsMatch program!
Civil Beat has raised $58,000 towards our $200,000 goal!
Volunteers for the Hawaii chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America are pushing Senate Bill 2436, which would shorten the time period for voluntary surrender of firearms and ammunition upon disqualification from ownership, possession, or control from 30 days to seven days (they hope it’ll be amended to 48 hours).
Chad Blair is joined on the Pod Squad by three of the volunteers, Melissa Pavlicek and Donna Arany in the studio and Bennett Cale on Maui.
