Hawaii Lawmakers Propose Repeal of 2nd Amendment

We already know how radical Hawaii lawmakers are, I mean let’s just look at the 9th Circuit Court and the Judge appointed by former President Barack Obama.

Now legislators in Hawaii, a state with some of the strictest gun laws in the United States, moved last week to bring their concerns about the 2nd Amendment to the national stage.

In Senate Concurrent Resolution (SCR) No. 42, introduced Tuesday, Democratic lawmakers assert that

in light of the numerous tragic mass shootings at schools, work places, and public events, this body believes that it is necessary to repeal or amend the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.

In the resolution, lawmakers urge Congress to

adopt a proposed amendment to the United States Constitution pursuant to article V of the United States Constitution to clarify the constitutional right to bear arms.

The sponsors of the resolution suggest the Framers’ use of the term “well-regulated militia” was “intended only to restrict the United States Congress from legislating away a state’s right to self-defense.”

Hawaii has a history of enacting gun control. In 2016, Hawaii became the first state in the country to add gun owners in the state to the FBI’s centralized database (known as “Rap Back”), which allows federal authorities to notify local law enforcement when a gun owner is arrested. That bill, SB 2954, was co-sponsored by Sen. Roz Baker, who also introduced this week’s resolution.

Resolution co-sponsor Stanley Chang has a similar history of advocating gun control measures, while other legislators who introduced SCR No.42, like Sen. Laura Thielsen and Sen. Karl Rhoads, have likewise supported other anti-Second Amendment policies.

It’s not shocking that a State that has radical Democratic Senators who scream impeachment towards Trump with no evidence, and Tulsi Gabbard running for President on the Democratic ticket, that this would be a method that Hawaii would push and like to see happen.
