Kailua, HI -(AmmoLand.com)- The Senate Public Safety Committee, Chairman Senator Clarence K. Nishihara, will hold a public hearing on HB2632 March 17, 2016.
Please click on the bill number above for bill information and to send testimony. HRA OPPOSES.
Deadline to submit testimony, 1:45 pm Wednesday March 16.
Requires the county police to seize all firearms from any person who is a danger to self or others due to mental health reasons and requires emergency hospitalization. Good idea! But where’s the due process?
The bill language in the present draft is unclear as to whether a judge’s order is required to seize guns. HPD thinks they won’t need one.
HRA remains STRONGLY OPPOSED unless the bill is amended to specify that a court order must be obtained for the hospitalization before firearms can be seized, as required under the 2nd and 4th Amendments and Hawaii State law: capitol.hawaii.gov/hrscurrent/Vol06_Ch0321-0344/HRS0334/HRS_0334-0061.htm.

We used to have a law that let the police put you in for a mandatory 3 day mental health evaluation if they thought you were mentally ill. But because they abused that law, it was taken away. Why not re-enable that law, but this time all police departments must have an on-call panel of 3 psychiatrists to make that evaluation and decision?
But if someone was found to be mentally ill, they should be institutionalized until they are better, then the issue of taking their firearms would be rendered moot.
One should be entitled to due process. i.e. a court order should be the minimum.
I have always been one who believes Hawaii should be given back to the Hawaiians. Now if they also do not want guns well then so be it as well. They really do not represent the rest of the United States.
Of course it would be a suicide move.
You given back to the Japs right? HI is something like 66% Japanese. I was on the Arizona once years ago and there was this Jap tour group just laughing their heads off and taking pictures. Disgusting little piece of sh&4 state
