Hawaii now has a law that automatically places the names of citizens who register a gun into the FBI criminal database.

Courtesy of Raw Story:  

Hawaii’s governor signed a bill making it the first U.S. state to place its residents who own firearms in a federal criminal record database and monitor them for possible wrongdoing anywhere in the country, his office said. 

The move by gun control proponents in the liberal state represents an effort to institute some limits on firearms in the face of a bitter national debate over guns that this week saw Democratic lawmakers stage a sit-in at the U.S. House of Representatives. 

Hawaii Governor David Ige, a Democrat, on Thursday signed into law a bill to have police in the state enroll people into an FBI criminal monitoring service after they register their firearms as already required, his office said in a statement. 

The Federal Bureau of Investigation database called “Rap Back” will allow Hawaii police to be notified when a firearm owner from the state is arrested anywhere in the United States. 

Hawaii has become the first U.S. state to place firearm owners on the FBI’s Rap Back, which until now was used to monitor criminal activities by individuals under investigation or people in positions of trust such as school teachers and daycare workers.

I think this is a great idea.

Of course I am also one of the people in a position of trust whose fingerprints have been sent to the FBI like five times now, for a variety of different positions.

If the FBI gets to keep an eye on me, a peaceful non-gun owner, then it seems perfectly fair that people with deadly weapons in their possession should be tracked as well.

I mean if they don't do anything wrong, they have nothing to fear.


P.S. By the way Hawaii has the lowest number of gun fatalities in the nation.


  1. I wish that the senate and the house would look at Hawaii's new law and institute it on a national law.

    Why can't Illinois do this? You know a state with strict gun control and high ass crime.

    1. Anonymous9:27 AM

      Because most guns are not legally obtained in Ill. Just looking the wrong way at someone will get a dozen rounds fired. There is no appreciation of life.

    I believe rulers, no matter the form, have proven throughout history that if they want to end you, they will find the evidence to justify their action.

    Hawaii is correct and I look forward to following this laws progress.

    Anyone vacationing in Hawaii with their concealed gun will be able to fly as long as they register?

    The only presidential candidate in history to run while under federal investigation, Clinton has benefited from chummy relationships with media pooh-bahs who have successfully shielded her for decades. But the former first lady has a thin skin and a glass jaw; she’s never faced sustained, fearless criticism before and doesn’t handle it well.

    Her brazen defiance of federal regulations, State Department protocols, national-security concerns and espionage and bribery laws make her the tomato can of candidates. Heck, the guy who set up her private e-mail server just took the Fifth 125 times in a deposition. Think he’s got something to hide?

      6:10, I believe you need to go back to bed and sober up your thinking.

      It is not now, nor has it EVER been, a crime to be under investigation. Hundreds of thousands of people go through it every year. That does NOT mean they are guilty by any means! And in most cases they are NOT.

      If there were ANYTHING to the so-called problems for which she is being investigated, it is probable she would already have been charged. Look how long she has been "under investigation" for Benghazi for crying out loud. Those idiots on the congressional committee REFUSE to accept there is nothing there! They even refused to listen to their own specially appointed investigator who told them there was nothing there!

      As for the gentleman taking the 5th for that number of times, WHO CARES?! It is his RIGHT under the Constitution to refuse to answer ANY question which he feels MAY even POSSIBLY lead to charges being brought against him. It does NOT mean anything other than he just feels unsafe answering a question. ANY question.

      And I don't blame him in the least. Watching those idiots in congress wasting all that money looking for things they have repeatedly been told weren't there tells me I wouldn't trust those jackasses with ANYTHING of value - especially my freedom and rights! Personally, I wouldn't trust them with my used toilet paper!

      Charges mean NOTHING. Only a guilty verdict means anything.

      Not to mention, the 125 times he pled the fifth does not in any way mean he refused to answer 125 different questions. Remember the 11 hours of interrogation Hillary went thru at their hands? How many times did they ask her the same question, over and over again?

    3. "But the former first lady has a thin skin and a glass jaw; she’s never faced sustained, fearless criticism before and doesn’t handle it well."
      You need to go back and watch the 11 hour long interrogation she faced by the Benghazi witch hunters.

      She has faced sustained, brazen (not fearless) criticism for over 25 years and boy, can she take it.

      By the way, it is every American citizen's right to invoke the 5th amendment. No one is obligated to play along with witch hunters abusing the constitution for partisan gain.

    4. Hey @6:10, normally when people post stuff they have not written, they put the material in quotation marks and cite the source. Or at least make some sort of indication that what they are posting was not written by them and some sort of informal attribution as to where it came from. I found your entire post, word for word, on another website. I'm guessing they didn't steal it from you, but if they did, you really should go after them for it.

      Seriously, all it takes is going to yahoo, putting "chummy relationships with media pooh-bahs" in the search field (with the quotation marks, they are really important), and there it is.

      You didn't write it, you copied and pasted and worse, you tried to pass it off as your own post.

      You have no integrity, and don't expect anyone here to treat your postings with any seriousness because you can't even be honest about what you are posting.

    I am a Hawaiian gun owner and pleased with the new law.

      Can you carry concealed in Hawaii?

    Hawaii's Gov. Ige also signed a new law yesterday prohibiting stalkers and sexual predators from buying guns. We do have the lowest incidents of gun deaths, but I believe we are right up there with the knife ones! aloha!

    This is a scary step. This only puts us more into a military state. This database will bot be used for protection of citizens. It will be used to single people out and villianuze them. We have gone back to dark days. Our own past has taught us this method leads down roads of hurting civilians and families through fear and intimidation. And then becomes guilty by association and interrogation of innocent people. I am very disappointed in Hawaii and am very surprised the Hawaiian people voted for this.

    1. Anonymous10:31 AM

      clearly you don't know the Hawaiian people, or the people of the state of Hawaii. We live on an island, after awhile everyone is connected through a couple of degrees to everyone else. if you have a beef with someone the weapon of choice is a knife. guns are a coward's choice. knives keep it personal.

      "The Federal Bureau of Investigation database called “Rap Back” will allow Hawaii police to be notified when a firearm owner from the state is arrested anywhere in the United States."

      Arrested for what?

      If not for a gun offense, then what happens on the Mainland, stays on the Mainland.

      Y'all remember that cops can lie, legally, right?

    If it saves one life, it's worth it, and if Hawaii can do it, so can all the other states. You gotta fill out more paperwork, and fork out money, to own a dog, get a license, shots, etc than you do to buy a gun.
    Make it an annual renewal and keep track of where the guns go. Want Ammo? No problem, Tax the hell out of them and have each one engraved with the owner's social security number.

    This is so bizarre

    Christy Sheats, who was a gun advocate fatally shoots two daughters before being killed by police

    Christy posted frequently on her Facebook page, including a post in September praising her daughters as “my two amazing, sweet, kind, beautiful, intelligent girls. I love and treasure you both more than you could ever possibly know.”

    Neighbors told reporters they had never heard of any problems involving the family.
    “They were always cheerful and never depressed. You never heard anything bad about them,”

    She Posted on Facebook About Needing to Have Guns to Protect Her Family
    In another post, in March, she shared a gun advertisement video, and wrote, “It would be horribly tragic if my ability to protect myself or my family were to be taken away, but that’s exactly what Democrats are determined to do by banning semi-automatic handguns.”


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
