Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle signed two pro-gun measures into law late yesterday. The first, SB 358 establishes provisions against seizure of firearms or ammunition during emergency or disaster, suspension of permit or license. Prohibits any person or government entity to seize or confiscate, under any civil defense, emergency, or disaster relief powers or functions conferred, or during any civil defense emergency period, or during any time of national emergency or crisis, any firearm or ammunition and permit or license of any individual who is lawfully permitted to carry or possess the firearm or ammunition and who carries, possesses, or uses the firearm or ammunition in a lawful manner and in accordance with the criminal laws of this State.

The second, SB0532 applies to the “Castle Doctrine” and establishes provisions relating to owner to felon. It provides that “any owner of any other interest in real property shall not be liable to any perpetrator for any injury or death that occurs upon the real property during the course of after the commission of certain felony offenses. Prior law required a homeowner to “retreat” from his or her own home when invaded by a criminal engaging in a felony.
