Convention of States!


Coronavirus fails to thwart gun show results!

Published in Blog on March 18, 2020 by Mark Kenneth White

Hawaii Grassroots Coordinator Brett Kulbis gets ready for a busy day of petition signature collection from stalwart Second Amendment gun show enthusiasts.

Undaunted by the Coronavirus pandemic scare, the Convention of States Hawaii team gathered another 205 petition signatures at the Hawaii Historic Arms Association's Great Guns Show held in Honolulu March 14 and 15.  

That's the third highest petition collection of the nine gun events attended in the previous three years!

With four members of the eight-person volunteer team unable to risk exposure, the remaining participating members kicked into high gear and collected more than 100 signatures each day of the two-day event, which featured over 2,000 gun show goers.

The COS Hawaii display table featured a wide array of attention grabbing banners, floor signs, informative handouts, reference material, and active legislation.

 Even the back side of the display, facing the main floor of the show, was a splash of patriotic color delivering he Convention of States Message. 

    Pocket Constitutions stuffed with handouts including the actual petition are given to petition signers. The Annotated Constitution makes a great display. New this year was a registration effort to encourage voting in Hawaii.
