Hawaii is now the first state to monitor gun owners through a federal criminal record database.

The state’s Governor David Ige signed a bill that allows the police to enroll gun owners, who are already required to register their firearms, in a FBI database known as ‘Rap Black’.

When a gun owner from the state is arrested anywhere in the US, county police departments will be notified before evaluating whether the person can legally continue to own the weapons.

The state has also passed two laws barring stalkers and those convicted of sexual assault from gun ownership. Gun owners diagnosed with mental disorders will also have to surrender their firearms.
