Hawaii: Gun Control Bills Pass Chamber of Origin & Resolution Introduced to Redefine or Repeal the Second Amendment

This week, a resolution was introduced in the Hawaii state Senate calling on the U.S. Congress to change or repeal the Second Amendment.  This resolution shows a gross disregard for individual liberties that the United States was founded upon. 

Senate Concurrent Resolution 42, introduced by Senators Stanley Chang (D-9) and Karl Rhoads (D-13), would urge the U.S. Congress to adopt an amendment to eliminate the individual rights of citizens.

On top of the introduction of this egregious resolution, four anti-gun bills passed their chambers of origin.  

Senate Bill 600, introduced by Senator Clarence Nishihara (D-17), would raise the minimum age to transport a firearm into the state to 21.  By raising the age for firearm importation, persons who have lawfully acquired firearms outside of Hawaii, who are traveling to the state for purposes of hunting, target competition, or even relocating would be discriminated against based on their age and denied their constitutional rights.  SB 600 was passed by the state Senate on March 5th and was transmitted to the state House where it awaits committee assignments.   

Senate Bill 621, introduced by Sen. Nishihara, would set a one-size-fits-all requirement for gun owners to report lost or stolen firearms within 24 hours, further victimizing gun owners who have suffered a loss or theft of their property.  SB 621 was passed by the state Senate on March 5th and was transmitted to the state House where it awaits committee assignments

Senate Bill 1466, introduced by Senator Karl Rhoads (D-29), would create Gun Violence Protective Orders (GVPO).  A GVPO would be issued not because a person has been convicted of a crime or adjudicated mentally ill, but instead on third party allegations.  This legislation lacks strong due process protections, contains low evidentiary standards, and falls well below the norm for removing fundamental, constitutional rights.  SB 600 was passed by the state Senate on March 5th and was transmitted to the state House where it awaits committee assignments

House Bill 720, introduced by Representative Chris Lee (D-51), would set a one-size-fits-all requirement for gun owners to report lost or stolen firearms within 24 hours, further victimizing gun owners who have suffered a loss or theft of their property.  HB 720 was passed by the state House on February 28th and has been referred to both the Committee on Public Safety, Veterans and Military Affairs and the Committee on Judiciary.
