Pot Users And Firearms

It seems Hawaii is the first state on the list to start cross referencing any and all drug uses illegal or otherwise to confiscate firearms. The progressive government is going to use everything in their political arsenal to curtail gun rights soon.

Hawaii is also unique among states in that it has a state-wide gun registry. Starting to see the potential problem here? Recently, medical patients in Hawaii have been receiving letters asking them to relinquish any guns they own, since using marijuana would be violating federal law. The letters provide a 30 days period for medical patients to surrender their weapons, unless they have a medical clearance from their doctor stating they are competent to own a weapon. But the letters do not detail what happens if weapons are not voluntarily turned in, and because the police can cross-reference both lists, there is a concern that they may actually track down gun owners who are also patients.

    Stop smoking dope and drink like a fish. No problems then.

    There was once a time when States would do what they could to protect the rights of their citizens from Federal overreach.

    Apparently they now leverage the Federal Government to impose upon those rights.

    Freedom and a submissive populace cannot co-exist.
