HAWAII GUN CRIMES ATTORNEY
Hawaii has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation. It can be difficult, or almost impossible, for even the most peaceful, competent adults to legally purchase and carry a firearm in Hawaii. In theory, Hawaii has a procedure allowing for the peaceful, competent adult to purchase and carry concealed a firearm. In practice, this is virtually impossible. However, the peaceful competent adult can legally purchase a firearm and safely store it at home by scrupulously complying with Hawaii’s statutory scheme. Like all other states, and pursuant to federal law, not all people are eligible to possess a firearm.
Hawaii Gun Crimes Attorney
In Hawaii, anyone indicted for or convicted of any felony, or convicted of a misdemeanor crime of violence, or any illegal sale of any drug is prohibited. Further, any person receiving treatment or counseling for certain drugs or alcohol is prohibited as well as people who have been diagnosed with significant behavioral, emotional, or mental disorders. Finally, family courts are authorized to deny firearms to people based upon protection orders.
The unpermitted concealed carry of firearms is prohibited under Hawaii law, and individuals who do so may be charged with a misdemeanor for the unlawful possession of a deadly or dangerous weapon. Individuals seeking a permit for concealed carry are welcome to apply with the chief of police, however, these permits are rarely given.
As with other states, mere possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime is itself a felony offense. Possession of a firearm, even an inoperable one, during the commission of a felony is itself an even more serious felony offense.
The penalties for gun related crimes range from a misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine to a class A felony, punishable to up to 20 years in prison and more substantial fines.
