Hawaii: “Rap Back” Spurs Honolulu Firearm Permit Cost Increase

We told you earlier this you year about how Hawaii became the first state to begin using FBI’s “Rap Back” system, touted as the “world’s largest and most efficient electronic repository of biometric and criminal history information,” as a backdoor gun registration scheme. 

Now the Honolulu Police Department has announced that the firearm permit application fee there has jumped to $42.

Under SB 2954, which was signed into law last June, the existing registration requirement was expanded and law-abiding Hawaii gun owners, and visitors, are now entered into the federal “Rap Back” system, which is a biometric database managed by the FBI for continuous monitoring. We’ll keep you posted as further information becomes available.
