On Thursday, the governor of Hawaii submitted to Barack Obama by signing a controversial bill into law that will allow the state to enter the names and information of all legal Hawaii gun owners into a federal data base.
According to The Federalist Papers, this means all gun owners in Hawaii will now be seen as suspects by authorities in the state. Governor David Ige claimed this bill is about community safety and “responsible gun ownership,” and it will help law enforcement protect Hawaii residents and visitors. However, he would not elaborate on how this would be done.
State Senator Will Espero and the Honolulu Police Department claimed this law could be a model that other states will follow, but patriots are already fighting back against it.
“I don’t like the idea of us being entered into a database. It basically tells us that they know where the guns are, they can go grab them,” said state firearms instructor Jerry Ilo. “We get the feeling that Big Brother is watching us.”
The NRA has been fighting this bill from the beginning, saying that “Hawaii will now be treating owners of firearms as suspect and subject to constant monitoring.”
Ige signed two other gun control bills into law this week, one of which bans people convicted of stalking and/or sexual assault from owning guns. The other bill allows police to forcibly enter private homes and remove firearms and ammunition if the homeowner has been “disqualified from owning guns because of mental problems.” No details were given about who has the authority to disqualify someone from gun ownership.
It’s sickening that states like this are submitting to Obama’s ridiculous gun grabbing agendas. SHARE if you stand by the Second Amendment!
