SB556 : Terrorist Screening Database; Terrorist Watch List; Firearms and Ammunition; Gun Permit Application Background Check (LINK)
HAWAII FIREARMS COALITION OPPOSES THIS BILL.
Although Hawaii Firearms coalition does not believe that terrorists should own firearms. We do believe in Due process.
There is no set method for adding (or removing) people to the Terrorist screening database. There is no due process and no appeals process.
There has been many occasions where people have been added in error and because no one on the list is notified they do not find out until its in a situation of some importance, Children have been denied flights because there name is similar to some one on the list. Even a congressman was erroneously added to the watch list. As such we do not feel it is an accurate tool to be using to decide if some one should be able to purchase a firearm or not.
If you wish to submit testimony in OPPOSITION to this bill you can do so below.
