Hawaii Firearms Coalition STRONGLY OPPOSES this bill.
Although there may be legitimate legal reasons to remove a persons firearms, this law removes all DUE PROCESS. The court orders are done in secret behind closed doors with no notification or chance to defend themselves of provide evidence in their defense.
The first time the firearms owner finds out a red flag order has been placed on them is when the police show up to take away their firearms. They would then have to hire a lawyer to defend themselves in court to get them back.
