(HONOLULU) July 10, 2013—Sara Tashima, Sacred Hearts Academy Senior, participated this week in the National Rifle Association (NRA) Junior Air Gun Championship and the National Air Rifle Junior Olympics in Anniston, AL. Tashima placed 5th individually overall in the NRA competition and won second place in the standing shooting competition. She qualified for the NRA National Postal Match Team, a match in which competitors fire on their home ranges using targets which have been marked for identification. The fired targets are then sent to NRA for scoring and ranking for awards.
During the National Air Rifle Junior Olympics, Tashima was awarded the “The Excellence in Competition” badge (EIC) by accruing 30 match points in her career as an air rifle competitor. There have only been 600 EIC badges awarded since 1998 and only one other Hawaii EIC badge recipient, Sacred Hearts Academy Air Riflery Assistant Coach Vicci Yau. The Sacred Hearts Academy Air Riflery Head Coach is Guy Chun, assisted by Carlton Lum and Yau; Ryan Hogue is the Athletic Director.

Well, here it is, Ladies and Gentlemen!
Honolulu City and County Council will hear a resolution requesting HPD to open registration and permits at the Kapolei and Kaneohe Stations as well as Beretania Main. Here's the hearing notice for next Tuesday, May 14, 2013, 9am, in the Committee on Public Safety and Economic Development at Honolulu Hale, corner of Punchbowl and King:
Several members are friendly:
COMMITTEE ON PUBLIC SAFETY AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
Carol Fukunaga, Chair
Kymberly Marcos Pine, Vice Chair
4th on the agenda, it's not a bill for an ordinance, just a resolution, but it's a step in the right direction.
4. RESOLUTION 13-74 – FIREARM PERMITTING AND REGISTRATION AT KAPOLEI AND KANEOHE. Requesting the Honolulu Police Department to provide for firearm permitting and registration at the Kapolei and Kaneohe Police Stations.
Testimony should be faxed or e-mailed, but concerned people testifying in person, filling the Chamber, is what counts. Time to mobilize our people who don't appreciate that Honolulu Police Department only offers permits and registration at one station. Just click on the hearing notice above and follow the directions to send a line or two in support and why. Thank the Committee for hearing the issue.

HRA Legislative Liaison
