The resolution also urges Congress to adopt a proposed constitutional amendment “to clarify the constitutional right to bear arms.”
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in June 2008 that the Second Amendment “protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.”
The 5-4 ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller also stated, “Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited.”
The Hawaii Senate resolution has been referred to committee and no hearings are scheduled at this time.
Of Hawaii’s 25 state senators, only one is Republican. The rest are Democrats.

In the month of February, there were more than 76,000 illegal border crossings and inadmissible foreign nationals, the most in this month in 12 years — a record for President Trump’s administration.
Princeton Policy Advisor Steven Kopits now projects that illegal border crossings for this calendar year will be more than three times what they were in 2017 and nearly double last year’s total crossings. The projection predicts there will be more than 840,000 illegal border crossings this year, though Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen predicts about 900,000 crossings.
Should illegal immigration reach this level, as Kopits projects, it would mean that border crossings in Trump’s third year in office outpace every single year of illegal immigration under former President Obama.

The creators of Plague Inc. declared this week an “anti-vaxxer” scenario will be added as a buff in a new update after a Change.org petition received over 10,000 signatures.
ICYMI: Alright, alright! You spoke, we listened. Neurie’s very happy to hear that we’re going to start figuring out anti-vaxxers soon. He’s dying to try and get inside their heads. https://t.co/fYq09awgJc pic.twitter.com/qxnNQGIV1b

“ICYMI: Alright, alright! You spoke, we listened. Neurie’s very happy to hear that we’re going to start figuring out anti-vaxxers soon. He’s dying to try and get inside their heads,” the game’s creators said in a tweet Tuesday.
The game, from Ndemic Creations, centers around developing and spreading a pathogen that can infect everyone on the planet.
“Your pathogen has just infected ‘Patient Zero’. Now you must bring about the end of human history by evolving a deadly, global Plague whilst adapting against everything humanity can do to defend itself,” a description of the game developed in 2012 reads.
The idea to add people who are distrustful of vaccines started with a Change.org petition from gamer Eduard Gabrian, whose reason for requesting the addition boiled down to simply “Anti-vaxxers are stupid.”
“So, yeah – we’re going to make some anti-vaxxer content for Plague Inc! It’s great to see so many people sticking up for science,” Ndemic founder James Vaughan wrote in a recent blog post titled “Standing up for Science.”
Vaughn notes “anti-vaxxers” had been included in a previous “Science Denial” scenario, but that “recent news makes the whole issue even more important.”
“We’re currently working out how Anti-Vaxxers will actually work in the game. We have a few ideas that we’re trying out and running them through our algorithms. (The biggest challenge is that if everyone in Plague Inc.’s global simulation suddenly stopped getting vaccinated then it would be a very easy game to win!).”
As yet, it’s unclear when the update will be released.
Plague Inc’s disease-spread model is reportedly so accurate that Vaughan was invited to speak at the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta.

Government creates the problem, asks for a fix and if you don’t have it they will solve it by making more problems. The following joke makes the point.
A cowboy named Conrad was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in Wyoming when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced out of a dust cloud towards him.The driver, a young man in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes, Ray Ban sunglasses and YSL tie, leans out the window and asks the cowboy, “If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?”
Conrad looks at the man, obviously a…
