Gun owners are facing another serious challenge to their Second Amendment rights in the state of Hawaii.
The State Legislature introduced a bill on Wednesday that would increase the requirements Hawaiians would have to meet to continuing possessing a firearm. Specifically, it will mandate that gun owners register their weapons every five years and purchase firearms liability insurance for them.
The requirement to purchase gun insurance is a radical new practice that has yet to be implemented in even the most anti-gun states. Of course, this aspect of the bill is minimized by it's sponsor, State Senator Josh Green (D-Kona, Ka'u).
“I don't want to take people's guns away from them but I want people to take full responsibility,” Senator Green said. How typical of a Democrat to say nobody's going to take their guns away from them before proposing a course of action that does just that.
But Green doesn't see it that way. Rather, he sees it in a way that very few Americans do.
