Welp it looks like our island friends are well on their way towards becoming a police state:
While the issue of gun control has made little headway in Congress, Hawaii this week enacted a series of gun laws, one of which the governor says makes it the first state to put firearm owners into a database.
That database, which is called the “Rap Back” system, is operated by the FBI and would notify police when a gun owner is arrested for a crime anywhere in the United States.
“This will allow county police departments in Hawaii to evaluate whether the firearm owner may continue to legally possess and own firearms,” the Hawaii governor’s office said in a statement.
Note it says “arrested” for a crime, not “convicted” of a crime. I find this query speaks volumes
During the public comment process regarding the bill, opponent Quentin Kealoha asked: “Why are law-abiding citizens exercising their constitutional right being entered into a criminal database? Would you enter people exercising their right to free speech into a criminal database?”
Oh don’t worry, the Statists will try to go there eventually
