TTAG tipster CF sent us a heads-up on new gun control legislation wending its way through The Aloha State’s notoriously anti-gun legislature. The endlessly beleaguered Hawaii State Rifle Association calls SB 783 “the worst bill of the decade.” Surely you jest! Don’t call them Shirley. And the HSRA is neither joshing nor wrong. Check out this summary . . .
Senator Maile Shimabukuro (Southwest Oahu) has introduced this terribly restrictive anti-Second Amendment bill.
SB783 requires that when you apply for a firearms permit you must swear in writing that neither you or any of your family or household has now or in the past “certain mental disorders.”
If you don’t swear so, you must lock up and secure or turn in all firearms and ammunition within 48 hours or pay a fine of $50 per day.
SB783 requires that failure to pay child or spousal support is cause for revocation of a firearm permit (which means also turn in all firearms and ammunition that you already have).
If you are ever arrested and refuse a breath, blood, or urine test, you must turn in or dispose of all your firearms within 48hrs.
And here’s the really, really galling bit.
Law enforcement officers are exempted from all provisions.
More gun-related civil rights trouble in Paradise. Good luck to the PoTG fighting the statists in America’s 50th state.
