Hawaii has some of the strictest firearm laws. However, legislators decided to ignore the current crisis, despite making promises to focus on the same, and legislate on introducing more unnecessary anti-gun laws.
House bills ready for voting
House Bill 1902 intends to ban magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds. Current owners will be allowed to keep their magazines, but cannot transfer them under any circumstances except through inheritance. The bill passed after various amendments by the Senate Judiciary Committee.
House Bill 2744 regulates various gun parts used for assembling firearms at home. The bill also bans 3D printers or any gun manufacturing kits used to create guns at home. Obtaining the banned components will result in a Class C felony charge.
The bill also establishes a Gun Violence and Violent Crimes commission to research on gun-related violence. Although a gun violence commission sounds like a good idea, most gun violence research tends to be biased. Such commissions become political tools of the left rather than scientific bodies. They tend to ignore obvious facts and harp on the same string of gun-control propaganda while presenting themselves as academic bodies.
Senate bills awaiting voting or under consideration
Senate Bill 3054 SD2 requires individuals to notify the police after permanently moving a firearm from the state in which it was registered. Firearm owners should complete this process within five days or incur a fine of $100 per violation. This bill will give the state police the ability to spy on people and violate their privacy.
Senate Bill 2635 SD 2 will require firearm owners to provide firearm registration details while purchasing ammunition. The caliber of the ammunition being purchased must match that of the firearm. Gun owners could include additional calibers for firearms that can fire different calibers.
However, the process is up to the discretion of the police, and no appeal process has been created. Firearm owners could also designate other people to purchase ammunition for the same firearm. However, such individuals will be subject to background checks and fingerprinting. It was referred to the House Committee for further consideration.
Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is pushing universal background checks in our state, and if left unchecked, it will not be long until we see bills like this getting traction in Austin. Texas is embarrassingly ranked 29th for gun rights, and with the help of the political elites in Austin, we will surely rank among New York, California, and Illinois if left to their own devices. Please join our fight today, and help us restore Texas' place as the standard for the U.S.
