    Firearm Registration

    Went down town to HPD, to do the required registration. Although a completely useless and ridiculous unconstitutional (State and Federal) exercise.

    I found the guys being the glass to be professional, courteous and friendly.

    SVG, where are you moving to? Did you have to register your guns?!?

    I guess you did; I didn't read the title of the thread, just the post on the new posts thing.

    I didn't move. But lived here before and come back and forth fairly often.
    Did have a great day at the range today. Wore my empty holster all day , some good conversations with some folks. They are hoping that things will change and there are a growing gun community in this state.

    My brother-in-law had to get to the gun range one hr. early to get our benches (it's a large range) and there were already choke people there.

    I suggest you get a group like www.illinoiscarry.com going in Hawaii to promote right to carry legislation and get yours changed to shall issue. Get your LTC for the entire state, not this county only sillyness. We don't have license to carry legislation yet but this year for Gun Owners Lobby Day at the state capitol we had around 8000 or more people show up. Last year we had about 5000. If things go well in November Bill Brady will be elected and he supports carry.

    I don't live here although might move back sooner or later.

    I agree we need a group. I think though that much of that will change there are a few cases in the 9th circuit that will basically force Hawaii to change many of its gun laws. So some of us our waiting for those cases before acting.

    Undoubtedly, it will have to come from above, for I am all but certain that Hawaii is past the tipping point for a political solution; i.e.: there are too many entrenched members of the tax-feeding class for the the tax-paying class to ever regain control.

    Angry

    At least its easy to do in hawaii and they give a few days to do it when you move in; even California is pretty easy this was too (handguns); but New York & DC make it hard - no new resident leeway to bring your guns in and then register

    Yes I remember before the Clinton gun ban, guns were a lot more common, I used to bring them back and forth all the time. NY and DC were already problems at that time.

    It is also easier to buy your gun somewhere else and bring it in than to go through the process of getting a pistol there.

    I've gotten over that. He ran in the primary before this one for governor as well. When a LTC bill gets through the legislature to his desk, when he is governor, the whole country will think its strange to hear Illinois Governor Brady signs LTC bill.
