Honolulu police have issued letters to medical marijuana patients telling them that it was illegal to possess guns. With 350 million firearms of various caliber and magazine size floating around America, it appears that the government has little interest in taking our guns away.
There are so few instances of the government seizing the firearms of American citizens, that in order to round out an “8 times the government took your guns” listicle, the magazine Guns and Ammo had to reach all the way back to the Battle of Athens, Tennessee in 1946. By and large, the federal government is doing its job to follow the Second Amendment — except for when it comes to medical marijuana patients.
As Leafly News reported, just three months after dispensaries opened for business in the state, the Honolulu police department recently sent letters to patients in the state’s medical-marijuana patient registry — ordering them to “voluntarily surrender” their guns and ammunition within 30 days, or face some consequences.
Turns out the Second Amendment to the Constitution has an exception for anyone
