On July 9, Gov. David Ige signed into law a bill that outlaws in Hawaii bump stocks, multiburst trigger activators, trigger cranks or other devices designed to help semiautomatic firearms fire like automatic weapons. The act comes after a gunman used a bump stock in a mass shooting in Las Vegas in October.

Possession, selling, manufacturing, or importing such devices is a class C felony under the new law.

The ban took effect immediately. However, under a state amnesty program, owners have 30 days or until Aug. 8 to surrender such devices to the police.

Honolulu police said owners can take the devices to the nearest police station or call 911 to have an officer pick them up.
