Hawaii Moves to Ban Assault Weapons
Ladies and gentlemen, the above title is not a hoax. We have reached the pinnacle what could be the capstone of our bad gun laws: a ban on semi-automatic rifles and other firearms. And, as if an attempt to ban these guns was not bad enough, this is also a confiscation bill that would require individuals turn in their firearms to the police or become felons. My friends, this is war. A war for the rights protected under the United States Constitution; a war for the freedoms that our brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, and even myself have sacrificed to protect. We will not go down without a fight.
Here is the down and dirty of the bill proposed by Senator Ihara.
Prohibits the distribution, transport, importation into the State, keeping for sale, or offering or exposing for sale assault weapons, or giving to another person assault weapon. Defines assault weapon. Prohibits the possession, sale, transfer, or use of a machine gun in the perpetration or attempted perpetration of certain crimes. Defines machine gun. Makes use of an assault weapon or machine gun in the course of committing murder in the first degree or second degree, manslaughter, kidnapping, sexual assault, assault in the first or second degree, robbery, burglary, or theft subject to criteria for extended term of imprisonment.
One thing we also learned from this is that Senator Ihara doesn’t have a clue about gun laws.
MACHINE GUNS HAVE ALREADY BEEN BANNED FOR A LONG TIME.
Why the need for duplicitous legislation? Are people just running around Hawaii with machine guns now? No. They are not. This guy is just buying into the gun ban hype and wants to take your rights away. We encourage everyone to get active and involved. Pay attention to the HDF Fan page and our local forums at 2aHawaii.com. It’s time to step into the ring and fight back against infringements.
