As per the article regarding Hawaii placing its gun owners in a database and some of the below quoted text from it, I could see this being a growing trend on a state by state basis.
Could any of this technically be a violation of any U.S. citizens' rights in any way, or conflict with previously issued laws?
That database, which is called the "Rap Back" system, is operated by the FBI and would notify police when a gun owner is arrested for a crime anywhere in the United States.
This will allow county police departments in Hawaii to evaluate whether the firearm owner may continue to legally possess and own firearms," the Hawaii governor's office said in a statement.
"This is about our community's safety and responsible gun ownership," Gov. David Ige in a statement. "This system will better enable our law enforcement agencies to ensure the security of all Hawaii residents and visitors to our islands."
The NRA expressed its displeasure with the new state law tweeting: "Exercising constitutional rights in #Hawaii now gets you entered into a federal watchlist, er, database."
During the public comment process regarding the bill, opponent Quentin Kealoha asked: "Why are law abiding citizens exercising their constitutional right being entered into a criminal database? Would you enter people exercising their right to free speech into a criminal database?"
The third new law requires gun owners to surrender their firearms and ammunition to the police if they've been disqualified to possess the weapons "due to a diagnosis of having a significant behavioral, emotional, or mental disorder, or due to emergency or involuntary admission to a psychiatric facility."
If the person does not voluntarily give up their arms, the police chief has permission to seize the weapons.
