    I was not aware of Hawaii's massive crime problem that requires such drastic measures. Anyone care to enlighten me?

    I would hope that the bill is DOA, good luck.

    Have they heard of the Bill of Rights? Even if they're not fond of #2, sounds like they need to read #s4&5.

    Wow, I thought Hawaii had already pretty much banned semi-auto stuff.

    Quite a few of Hawaii's Democrats are "A" rated by the NRA. Enough so that confiscation has been prevented so far. But the times they are challenging, and the struggle for our rights continue.

    All semi auto rifles are legal in Hawaii. At least for now.

    I often refer to the non-Texas states collectively as the "upper 49". It has been brought to my attention more than once that Hawaii is actually further south; all I can say is that I don't think of them as being to our south so much as they are to our LEFT. WAY to the left.

    The Hawaiians have voted in congressmen that have an A+ rating. I pray they have done the same at the state level. The people of Hawaii are our brothers. They don't deserve to be disarmed.

    I am constantly amazed how some 2A supporters will turn on their brothers and sisters. By your logic, the US having now voted for BHO twice, deserves what it gets too, right? I thought the whole concept of "inalienable rights" and guarantees by the BOR were to specifically PREVENT the majority from depriving the minority of said rights? Yet here you are, cheering that fellow Americans are facing the possible confiscation of their lawfully-owned property, and violation of their rights as guaranteed by the Constitution.

    I truly don't get it....

    That's right! Hawaii is at the southern tip of the US. Even a lot of folks in Hawaii aren't aware of this fact.

    Don't want to cause any tension on THR. States with stronger 2A supporters deserve to be proud.

    But if this law does pass, we can expect lawsuits to challenge the constitutionality of the law, and that could create a precedent for all of us if it reaches the US Supreme Court.

    We should all join pro-2A organizations to fight this battle on as many fronts as needed.

    not against hawaiin folks at all, im all for state's rights and them governing themselves.

    just because the people of my state vote one way doesnt make it right for other states. if hawaiin folks wanted shall issue ccw and no restrictions on their guns they would have voted that way. who am i to force my views on them as they apply to just their own state?

    dont states have a right to govern themselves?

    new york senate has a republican majority, they could have stopped the current mag restrictions but didnt, thats not what the people of that state wanted or they would have elected different folks.

    nationally we got what we deserved political wise, the truth of the matter is that nationally we get semi conservative or liberal leaders on a rotational basis....until the welfare folks out number the working folks....

    states like hawaii and new york have habitually voted for decades in a row for liberal politicians, be they republican or democrat they were liberals none the less and they voted for them time and time again. thats what they want.

    you dont see states swing from liberal leaders to conservative leaders every so many years....they usually stay the course with what they want state wise without interference from the voters of other states.

    HA is AK's evil Spock when it comes to gun control. But the fact remains they do a lot of gun tourism from the Asian nations and have a lot of hogs to shoot. I doubt this will get far.

    We're HA's evil Spock when it comes to weather.

    You seriously think every person in New York wanted to have AWBs registered, and mags limited to 7 rounds???

    You seriuosly think that the wishes of any sort of majority should be able to violate the rights of others?

    Those are not the principles this country was built upon

    oh no, on the federal level there is the electoral college, state level is popular vote just the way the constitution intended.

    nobody in new york (state) government is saying you cant have a gun, they just restrict the kind of gun....state wide only, not nationally. there are restrictions on speach called slander and so on.....dont put the failures of new yorkers on my back. this is a state only problem that they need to correct or live with.

    where is all the uproar over the one gun a month buying limit, 5 day waiting periods, no standard cap mags, no shall issue ccw, no open carry and all that jazz that occurs everyday in other states?

    Will that even be legal with no compensation? Glad I moved a couple of years ago to Louisiana. Heck we just strengthened our state second amendment here. Still I have a couple of friends there that would be affected by this if it passes.
