Hawaii Says Aloha To A Federal Gun Registry, Goodbye To Rights

posted on June 25, 2016

Big Brother is alive and well in the Aloha State. Democrat Hawaii Gov. David Ige signed a bill Thursday that will enter gun owners into an FBI database registry. Under the law, police will be notified if a resident is arrested anywhere in the country and will then make the determination of whether that resident can continue to possess firearms. 

This measure sets a dangerous precedent in turning the notion of our inalienable rights upside-down. You’re no longer innocent until proven guilty, you’re guilty until proven innocent. It’s part of an alarming larger trend where legislators across the country are trying to rewrite laws to cast an ever-widening net to deny the right to keep and bear arms to more people—whether or not they've ever committed any crime, whether or not they're violent or dangerous, and in some cases, whether or not they’ve even been accused of any wrongdoing.
