Hawaii Politicians move to ban assault weapons in the Aloha State.
That’s right folks, the title says it all. One of the days that we have been afraid of is on the horizon. There is no tinfoil here – none at all: they want your guns.
The basic description of the bill is as follows (with the full text being seen here):
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.
What can you do? Well, you need to get active. Lace up your damn gloves and get ready to fight. First things first, join the discussion over on www.2ahawaii.com (Our local gun forum). Also, you should be working closely with the Hawaii Rifle Association. Lastly, you should be watching out for the new stuff coming by the local group Hawaii Defense Foundation, who will be working with national coalitions to fight these bad laws.
This one will be brief and simple, and we will be posting more about this soon.
