Today, December 5, 2016, the Honolulu Police Department announced that the firearm permit application fee has increased to $42.00. This fee increase is one of the first effects of the provisions in Senate Bill 2954 which was signed into law last June. Under SB 2954, 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.
For more information please read the article, “Hiding in Hawaii: “Rap Back” Program Revealed to Be Gun Registration Scheme” which appeared in America’s 1st Freedom.
