Besides the terrorist watch list, the FBI also maintains another list in the form of the criminal records database. As of June 24, if you’re a law-abiding legal gun owner living in the state of Hawaii, you have been added to that list.
Hawaii’s governor signed a bill making it the first state to place its residents who own firearms in a federal criminal record database and monitor them for possible wrongdoing anywhere in the country, his office said.
The move by gun control proponents in the liberal state represents an effort to institute some limits on firearms in the face of a bitter national debate over guns that this week saw Democratic lawmakers stage a sit-in at the U.S. House of Representatives.
