NRA-ILA Files "Friend of the Court" Brief In Hawaii Gun Control Case

The state of Hawaii thinks that the constitution doesn't apply to them. They have passed laws that are blatant infringements of their citizens' Second Amendment rights. Need I mention that the Democrat Party controls the state government?

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is looking into their laws (the case is Yukutake v. Shikada) and the NRA-ILA is involved. Given the history of the "Ninth Circus", I would not be surprised if this case eventually winds up in the U.S. Supreme Court.

From the NRA-ILA:

On Monday, NRA-ILA filed an amicus curiae (or friend of the court) brief in a case challenging Hawaii’s draconian permit-to-purchase and firearm-registration laws in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

The Aloha State does not make it easy for an individual to exercise their Second Amendment Rights. State law imposes many repetitive steps on tight deadlines. First, one needs to apply for a permit to purchase a handgun, which requires providing the Chief of Police with the handgun’s make, model, serial number, etc. If the permit is approved, the individual then has 10 days to complete the purchase. Then upon completion of the purchase, the seller inputs the handgun’s make, model, serial number etc., signs the permit, and has 48 hours to get it back to the Chief of Police. But that’s not the end of the process. The purchaser then has five days to bring the handgun into the police station for it to be inspected and registered, which is the third time that the handgun’s make, model, serial number, etc., get recorded.

These burdensome laws “were passed solely to ‘control’ how people exercise their Second Amendment rights,” the brief argues.
