Updated Yukutake etal. vs. Connors (Shikada)
« on: April 25, 2022, 11:50:30 AM »
So as you've seen in this section, the state is trying to pass a bill that says only FFL purchases no need bring the gun to HPD, and all others you have to (private sales, mainland purchase,etc...)

Another reply to the states appeal was filed today saying that this is violating the judges ruling.  For all purchases/transfers there is no need to bring in the gun to HPD to show them.

So basically the state is violating the judges ruling and trying to see what they can get away with.  But since HIFICO has good lawyers, they've submitted the brief about it telling the state to uphold/honor the judges ruling.

And the state has yet to change the permit to acquire valid date for pistols from 5 days to 10 days as the judge ruled.

HRA filed a brief in response to the states appeal.  Bascially saying that the state could not prove that in person reg helps with public safety.

This state is run by a bunch of F-ups.

Related to this lawsuit:

https://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/session2022/bills/HB2075_CD1_.htm?fbclid=IwAR3e-kRF1vtWpOtNFr_2oLBfxVczSCTua8Oub2r0_I-EGHdkhloaFZDyCG8

HB2075 revised that negates the judges orders.

Then they added this in "These laws were part of militia requirements, which mandated that individuals subject to militia duty -- typically white men in a specified age range -- must acquire their own arms and ammunition."

Looks like they want to have all pre-1899 antiques registered as well, the language is so broad and vague.

Gun Owners of America (GOA) filed their amicus. Good to see other groups helping out. So far no anti 2a groups have filed anything to support the states position.

On Sunday I bought a NIB Henry AR7 from a friend who didn't want it anymore.   On Monday I called HPD (Hawaii PD) Firearms department and registered it over the phone.  Took less than 5 minutes.  It was so easy it makes me want to buy more.

A post I wrote up a couple weeks ago.

Yukutake/Kikukawa v. Shikada

Our court case regarding firearms permits and inspection started in October 2019 to ease the burden on acquiring firearms in Hawaii.  I bought my first gun since then from my friend (and co-plaintiff) David Kikukawa at Danger Close Tactical. 

I didn't have to take any time off of work to get my gun.  I applied during HPD's afterwork hours on Wednesday, received my permit by email, and registered my gun online.  Prior to the lawsuit, the required three day trips to HPD cost me $300 in lost wages with each firearm purchased.  Multiply that by 25,000 permits applications per year, that means $7.5 million in lost wages annually for Hawaii gun owners.

I hoped the State would drop their appeal as this was a win-win for everyone - gun owners saved time and money, police departments save manpower better used for patrols and investigations, and the State would save taxpayers’ money by not continuing the litigation on this lawsuit.  I was wrong.

The lawsuit will continue in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and we have a very strong case.  Many thanks to the organizations submitting amicus briefs in support of this lawsuit:  Hawaii Rifle Association , NRA - National Rifle Association of America, Second Amendment Foundation / Madison Society Foundation, Gun Owners of America and many others who wrote and supported the briefs.  And most importantly Attorney Alan Beck and Stephen Stamboulieh for taking on this lawsuit.

Updates copied from other posts:

On June 3rd Governor Ige signed into law HB2075 Requiring in-person inspection/registration for firearms acquired from out of state, person to person, or assembled with engraved registration numbers.  This conflicts with the Federal District Court's ruling in Yukutake v Connors which struck down the requirement as unconstitutional.  Honolulu Police Department has updated their website to reflect the changes.  It is unknown if other county's are following.  Firearms acquired through FFL's may still be registered remotely and are exempt from the in-person inspection/registration requirement
We are confident that we will prevail in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in Yukutake v Connors.
