Here Comes the Gun Database: Hawaii First State to Put Gun Owners in Federal Database

The Anti-gunners are at it again, and this time, they have taken their totalitarian efforts to whole new disturbing level.

Hawaii just became the first state in the United States to place firearm owners into a federal database. Hawaii Governor David Ige signed bill SB 2954 on Thursday, making every gun owner in the state subject to tracking no matter where they go in the country.

“This is about our community’s safety and responsible gun ownership. this system will better enable our law enforcement agencies to ensure the security of all Hawaii residents and visitors to our islands,” Ige said.

The bill requires Hawaii gun owners to register their firearms with their local police, who are then required to enter that person into an FBI criminal monitoring service.  The database, which is commonly referred to as the “Rap Back” system, effectively allows the federal government and Hawaii law enforcement to monitor anyone on the list.

According to the FBI website, the system was set up to “receive notifications on the activity of the individuals who are on the list,” which consists of those who hold positions of trust (school teachers and daycare workers) or individuals under criminal investigation or who have already been convicted.

So that means all gun owners in Hawaii are now considered criminals by their government, subject to tracking and investigation without ever even being accused of a crime.

“As you can imagine, the NRA finds this one of the most extreme bills we’ve ever seen,” said Amy Hunter, a spokeswoman for the National Rifle Association’s institute for legislative action.

Even travelers who don’t live in Hawaii are subject to being placed into this database, as the state requires all travelers and visitors carrying guns to register with the state. That means you could be added to the “Rap Back” database without any way to remove yourself from the list.

A Gun-Control model for other states?

State Sen. Will Espero, who introduced the bill, and the Honolulu Police Department are calling on other states to pass similar legislation saying their bill should serve as a model for other states.

“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.”

Governor Ige also signed a bill, HB2632, giving police the power to seize firearms and ammunition if a person has been disqualified because of mental illness or “behavioral and “emotional” problems.

    Over 56 shot, 13 killed in Chicago over the recent Father’s Day weekend. Those shooters on any gun control list? No, but law biding, legal gun owners are. Does something seem askew here?

    Nullify the rule. In other words, do NOT comply. Our politicians can violate the laws at will, why not us?

    I don’t have guns. But I know where to get one. There are criminals selling drugs. That isn’t legal but it is a National epidemic none the less. Do these morons ever think before passing a law. Hawaii’s income is derived from those who visit and leave their wallets contents while they are there. Boycott Hawaii. Simple as that. Don’t go there. And now that gun owners are going to be tracked, those guns are going to disappear down the rabbit hole. Police can expect more guns will be stolen and guess the stealers won’t bother to register them either. O well, shit happens when you pass stupid laws. These tyrants are idiots. Now nobody is going to register their guns. I think it is halarious. These fools just did the biggest favor to the Liberty movement. Going underground before the PTB.

    Get the names and numbers of the politicians in Hawaii who were involved in getting this legislation passed. We need to put them on the list of political suicide. Don’t vote for them for anything. Follow them around and see how they like being stalked. These people need to get a taste of their own medicine. Let the politicians everywhere know, we are not going to let you take away our rights. We are fighting you. Call their offices incessantly. Write their names on bathroom walls. Fight. Take Martial Arts Classes. Take up boxing. Learn how to use a crossbow. Learn how to throw knives. Buy bear spray. Carry bear spray and stop thinking you will fight when someone is at your doorstep. Fight tyranny by becoming involved in The Law and Politics. Run for Office. Run AFTER these tyrants not FROM them.

      We need our own database. Start accruing names and addresses of all politicians, judges and law enforcement. Let them know that we know.
