Hawaii: Governor Ige Signs Anti-Gun Legislation

Recommended Posts

On July 9th, Governor David Ige signed the final remaining anti-gun bill awaiting his consideration, Senate Bill 600. This comes on the heels of him signing Senate Bill 1466 on June 27th

Senate Bill 600, introduced by Senator Clarence Nishihara (D-17), will raise the minimum age to transport a firearm into the state to the age of 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 will be discriminated against based on their age and denied their constitutional rights.

Senate Bill 1466, introduced by Senator Karl Rhoads (D-29), will create Gun Violence Protective Orders (GVPO).  A GVPO will 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 and contains low evidentiary standards that fall well below the norm for removing fundamental constitutional rights.

Due process?

 

What's that?

 

Oh, why bother?

 

Feelings are more important...
