Hawaii has legal medical marijuana, but be careful, because if you’re a gun owner, and you legally use marijuana, Hawaii proposes to give you a good one right up the tailpipe. Excerpts with my comments follow:
Hawaii is one of 29 states that allow medical use of marijuana, but it is the only state that requires registration of all firearms. If you are familiar with the criteriathat bar people from owning guns under federal law, you can probably surmise what the conjunction of these two facts means for patients who use cannabis as a medicine, which Hawaii allows them to do only if they register with the state. This month many of them received a letter from Honolulu Police Chief Susan Ballard, instructing them to turn in their guns
So, being a medicinal marijuana user strips your right to self-defense away?
“Your medical marijuana use disqualifies you from ownership of firearms and ammunition,” Ballard says in the November 13 letter, which Leafly obtained this week after Russ Belville noted it in his Marijuana Agenda podcast. “If you currently own or have any firearms, you have 30 days upon receipt of this letter to voluntarily surrender your firearms, permit, and ammunition to the Honolulu Police Department (HPD) or otherwise transfer ownership. A medical doctor’s clearance letter is required for any future firearms applications or return of firearms from HPD evidence.”
So, if your doctor says it is OK you might, might get your right to keep and bear arms back? Of course natural rights do not work that way in Leftism because you possess no such rights comrade. Your only rights the left recognizes are rights the state allows you to have. And, of course, those rights can be suspended at the whim of the state so, really you have no rights do you? Of course, this is all “voluntary” right? Not so much
Voluntarily? Voluntarily? Fucking voluntarily? My ass – the state of Hawaii is using the full force and power of the state government to confiscate the property of law-abiding gun owners. You know, in direct contrast to every pro-gun control prog who ever bleated “oh, we don’t want to confiscate anyone’s guns!” Oh, and “oh, registration won’t lead to confiscation! You’re just being paranoid!”
Paranoid they say?
