We all know that one of the easiest and quickest ways for the government to “take our guns” is via a national registry highlighting each and every single person who’s purchased a gun using the national federal background checks.
It’s something gun advocates have been warning against for a long, long time now.
Should the government create such a registry they could then systematically work to single out gun owners one by one and seize all their guns.
Though the federal government doesn’t yet have this federal registry in place… the state of Hawaii now does.
That’s right, in an attempt to corral gun owners and implement some kind of “common sense gun control, Democrat lawmakers in the state of Hawaii have created a national registry for gun owners so they can track them.
What’s the purpose of this registry you may ask?
Well they say it’s so they can keep tabs of Hawaiian gun owners and see if they commit a crime outside of the state so they can monitor them at a later time.
Same thing goes with people coming into the state. By having this registry they can find out who coming into their state has a gun and then monitor them.
Sound a bit big brotherish?
Of course it does and that’s why people who oppose the bill want it stricken from the books.
“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” Jerry Ilo, a firearm and hunting instructor for the state, told the Associated Press last month. “We get the feeling that Big Brother is watching us.”
Here’s the craziest thing about this and probably one of the most problematic about this new law.
They’re using this list to watch people who are pillars in the community.
That’s why they’re paying special attention to people like teachers, bus drivers, physicians, and more.
As the NRA noted in a statement this is a horrible breach of privacy and singles out people who are doing nothing more than exercising a constitutional right.
“This is an extremely dangerous bill. Exercising a constitutional right is not inherently suspicious,” Amy Hunter for the National Rifle Association, said in May. “Hawaii will now be treating firearms as suspect and subject to constant monitoring.”
People all over the nation as well as in Hawaii really detest this bill and that didn’t stop Democrat lawmaker David Ige from signing it.
To top if it off he and the other Democrats also added another piece to the bill that lets the police seize firearms and ammunition if the homeowner has been disqualified because of mental problems.
How do you feel about this new law?
Does this scare you into thinking something similar might be coming down the pipe
