But how would you field dress your game?

Anyone else aware of this B.S. legislation, Senate Bill 126. http://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/session2010/bills/SB126_.HTM

I heard that the senator Les Ihara, that pushed this bill didn't even agree with it, he was simply doing a favor for a special interest group. So much for doing the right thing Think That excuse should land him in jail.

Correction. He signed the bill at the request of his constituents.

No way... politicians

No way... politicians representing their constituents. I didn't know that happened anymore.

Well, technically speaking,

Well, technically speaking, you can still clean your game.  Most hunting knives look like they'd still be allowed.  Looks like they are targeting the folding kind.  Stupid, IMO, but that looks like what it was meant for......

Yea, a regular hunting knife

Yea, a regular hunting knife is not the target here, but I still don't agree with the legislation.

if this happened in 2010,

if this happened in 2010, when did the firearms registration thing begin in the hawaiian counties?

i guess you have to pay a tax to import your firearm into the state and register with the police department.

i'unfortunately, when i hunted there, i did not know this. i would have followed the law if i was aware it existed, but hawaii is the only state which requires this (it's actually the county requiring it) but i'd never heard of this before and am still somewhat confused about it.

does anybody have the details on this?

Folding? Regular?

A folding knife, lockback or not, has been a pretty common "regular" hunting knife for over a century.  Just as a fixed blade knife is pretty regular or standard too.  I see no purpose in banning folding knives considering that one of the main purposes of a folding knife was "safety", to be safer to the person carrying it in case of a bad fall or something.  One of these days they are going to start banning lightweight mountain rifles because they are too easy for anyone to carry around Confused

It's all about disarming the

It's all about disarming the law abiding citizen. No common sense involved with these decisions, just the attempt to disarm us. The citizens will comply with the laws laid forth by our elected officials. The criminals will not worry about these laws and the officials know they can't do anything to deter them. Classic politics in the modern era.

It really is

It really is all about disarming.  An attack on one type of knife will eventually be an attack on all knives.  They are so busy these days trying to make guns too difficult to fire or trying to make cutlery not able to cut, it's rediculous.  I don't see the point to any of it.  I think laptops and personal computers are the number 1 tool used by a lot of criminals these days to commit life changing crimes, yet no politician is in any hurry to restrict convicted fellons from having these devices.  Careless driving causes more death and injury in this country every single day than guns or knives do, yet repeat traffic offenders are still on the road.
