When someone tells you they need firearms registration for “common sense” legislation, see the links as to what can happen. The Hawaii gun registration law allowed them to cross reference medical marijuana card holders and send them letters to “voluntarily” surrender their firearms. For the record, we do not condone the use of illegal or controlled substances and certainly not with firearms, but you can see how registration laws will allow the government to easily compile a list of gun owners for the “voluntary” surrender for their firearms, much like the recent confiscation orders in the Caribbean and New Orleans during recent hurricanes.
Gov. David Ige is signing a bill that makes the state the first to enter gun owners into an FBI database that will automatically notify police if an island resident is arrested anywhere else in the country.
Ige said in a statement today the legislation is about community safety and responsible gun ownership. He says it will help law enforcement agencies protect Hawaii residents and visitors.
