Judge Announces Intent To Strike Down Gun Registration And Firearms Permit Law - Ammoland.com

HONOLULU, HI-(Ammoland.com)- Today, a District judge announced that he would strike down Hawaii’s gun registration and firearms permit law in the Yukutake v Connors case.

The lawsuit centers around Hawaii’s requirements on gun owners along with Honolulu Police Department’s registration and gun policies. Gun owners must apply for a firearm permit in person at the central police station on Oahu. This rule means that a gun must travel to the police station in Honolulu to apply for a gun permit no matter where they live on the island. The resident must then return to the station in person 14 days later to pick up the permit. Once the person acquires a firearm, they must then again return to the station with the gun to register it with the police department.

These requirements mean that a person must travel to the police station at least three times to obtain a gun in the Aloha State.

It could take several hours to reach the police station Honolulu from parts of the island depending on the time of day and traffic, and the Honolulu Police Department policies limit the time that a resident can pick up a permit to Monday to Friday (excluding holidays) and between the hours of 7:45 am and 3 pm. These times are in the middle of the workday for most residents, which means that someone would have to take off three days of work to obtain a gun.
