A bunch of us have been pushing for private landowner liability protections so more hunting lands are opened up, but there's little support from hunters and hunting clubs.

2A Hawaii, you guys better be there.  He's the one that saved you from a lot of the gun control bills in the legislature.  He testified in person all the time, talk to legislators, did outreach, and worked 2A in the community.  He was there all the time, not only fighting for gun rights, but working the volunteer projects with HRA, LIFE, and hunters education to ensure the 2A continues in the future.  He sacrificed his time for all of you.

Everyone here owes him this.

My guess is HPD officers will assume any unregistered gun on you is illegal and will arrest you.  I bet most officers don't know about the firearms registration policy from the governors proclamation or their own firearms section.

Pre-fill and print the firearms forms to make the process go faster.  You do not need to bring your firearms down for registration anymore, it's optional.  Keep it positive as this is a celebration and not a protest.

I forgot my permit at home when I tried to register my pistol.  They told me to come back with it.  Best thing to do is tell the gun store they have to find it.  Or else call the police station to ask if you can register with out it.

Not sure why they need it, they have a copy at the station.  Let me know what happens, I can discuss it when I meet with the Maj there.

Depends on what type of shooting you plan on doing as everything has advantages and disadvantages.  Low power variable optics, the 1x-6x, sounds like a good fit for your 100 to 200 yard shooting.  Those are popular nowadays and the jack of all trades, master of none, optic.  CCO's or 1x optics are the best at close quarters, variable shooting positions, low light, and other scenarios (shooting with a gas mask, shoot on the move, etc).  High magnified optics are good at precision and target identification at long distances, but suck in low light, slower to get on target, have a narrow field of view, and usually used in prone or supported positions.  LPVO's are in the middle of the two.

Iron sights can be shot well at long distances.  However it requires considerably more skill and good eyesight.  Also clearly defined targets.

I wonder if the port shipping delays in LA will affect the deliver times.

Ahhh Darn it.  I will be out of town. >:(

Why only Wednesday?  Was that the deal that was approved?

It was agreed to in the settlement.  We figured if there's enough demand and it goes late every night, they'll eventually add on more days on their own.

Hawaii Firearms Coalition is celebrating our 2A wins and the start of HPD firearms evening hours for permitting and registration.  We want a lot of people to show up.  Apply for your permit to acquire or catch up on registration.  Apply for your long gun permit.  Apply for your carry permit.  Or just show up to support and eat pizza.

HPD will have extended hours every wednesday 8am to 6:30pm and will service everyone in line by 6:30pm no matter how long it takes.  I will be out there till the last person finishes even if it's midnight.  If you are registering a firearm, you don't have to bring the firearm in to do so but bring in your permit and firearm info (model, barrel length, serial# etc).

Thanks to my partner David Kikukawa (Danger Close Tactical) and attorney's Alan Beck and Stephen Stamboulieh for helping me win this in Yukutake v. Conners.

I think Chris may have PTSD, and he should seek counseling.  His arguments and lecturing were pure emotion, even if the points are valid,  He said nothing that focused on the Constitutionality of bearing arms, but rather tried to convince us that carrying a firearm -- no, a machine designed only to kill -- is a really serious decision.  Well, duh! 

Chris is a professional consultant who I met a couple years ago.  He is contracted by multiple organizations, including Everytown and Moms Demand Action.  He organizes movements and does stuff like this for a living.  He's not a firearms expert but he did what he's good at:which is talking to regular people and using empathy to build a relationship with others watching.  Avi's role as the attorney was to give the history and background.  Doug's job was to tie it into life in Hawaii.  It would've been better if we had a woman on to work the empathy part on our side.

There are two different audiences, gun people and non-gun people, who see things very differently in the debate.

The law is very badly worded on what exactly a receiver is.  In the old days this may have applied but firearms are so varied now that it's basically impossible to create a definition.  On an AR15 it would be the upper receiver, lower receiver, maybe even the bolt carrier and other stuff.  Same with the P320.  It's the reason the ATF dropped their prosecution of the 80% lower manufacturer and settled.  They knew it was a losing case and the judge would set a precedent to invalidate a lot of other gun laws.  Same is true with our "ghost gun" law.  The State would lose the case if they charged someone with it, if the person charged had enough money to fight it.

Hawaii's and the Feds laws will eventually be overturned in civil court someday.  Here or in another state.

The issue with most non-terminally ill suicide cases is the "permanent solution to a temporary problem."  If a person is in a suicidal state of mind, can they make decisions for themself?  Lots of similar conflicts out there.  Can the mentally ill homeless be committed against their will?  Can Britney Spears make decisions in her own life.  Can people be sent to prison because of a legit bout of mental illness where they had no control of what they did.

It's up to friends, family, and community to help those in need and not just when it comes down to the wire.  Be nice to eachother, understand peoples problems, and give people a call once in a while. 

Hawaii averages close to 200 suicide deaths every year, with an average of 45 firearm suicides.  A lot of people don't know this cause it's never reported in the news and usually happens at home.  This is an area I wanted to work on as a volunteer project for firearms safety.

Add in possession for the law passed this year but didn't update in the HRS books yet.

     [§134-10.2]  Manufacturing, purchasing, or obtaining firearm parts to assemble a firearm having no serial number; penalty.  (a)  A person who is not licensed to manufacture a firearm under section 134-31, or who is not a dealer licensed by the United States Department of Justice, shall not, for the purpose of assembling a firearm, purchase, produce with a three-dimensional printer, or otherwise obtain separately, or as part of a kit:

     (1)  A firearm receiver that is not imprinted with a serial number registered with a federally licensed manufacturer;

     (2)  A firearm receiver that has not been provided a serial number that may be registered in accordance with section 134-3(c); or

     (3)  Any combination of parts from which a firearm having no serial number may be readily assembled; provided that the parts do not have the capacity to function as a firearm unless assembled.

     (b)  Violation of this section is a class C felony. [L 2020, c 74, §3]
For bulk ammo, do manufacturers utilize used brass? 

Winchester whitebox is new production.  That's why I wondered where you got it from, if someone reloaded it and put it in the winchester box.  If so it could be excess bullet lube, tumbling solution/polish, or some kind of bullet sealant.  But new WWB 223 wouldn't have any of those.

Also the "no reg required until the online system is up" specifically applies to Honolulu county only.  The other counties have their own requirements and still require registration.

The Governor did give police chiefs discretion in enforcing the registration deadlines, however it is at their "discretion" and they did not publish any policy on it.
