I don't plink, as my guns are for defensive use only. However, I was not aware of this.
In that case, sounds like a typical hypocritical and perplexing action by the liberal state. States like Hawaii will criticize local officials who cooperate with the federal government for arresting/deporting illegal immigrants, but when it comes to cooperating with the feds to harass gun owners then its ok?
What about their very own law permitting medical use of the substance? They'll ignore federal law there, but since it involves guns they're all gung-ho about it again? Glad to see how much Hawaii cares about our Constitution, though. Darn sunshine patriots.
How about actually going after the criminals, and not people who register their guns/respond to gun ban letters. Anyone who would register their gun is not someone who will be committing crimes. Criminals meanwhile will continue to have their unregistered guns, while using all kinds of drugs and committing all kinds of violent crimes. Bravo, Hawaii. You're a model state. If the end game is to be as backwards and whimsical as possible, that is.
How about we actually prosecute someone after they've broken a law that has an actual victim? You know, since minority report isn't a real thing.
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."

I wish you lot were consistent with your outrage.
Laws to screw us little people are enacted all the time and you guys are happy about it, but as soon as they come for your guns it's the end of the world.
This is why we are being screwed over, wake up to it already.
