Isn't it being common now where someone gets stopped for a traffic violation and gets arrested for firearms, drug charges, driving a stolen vehicle, etc. I guess that's what you call...BACHI.

Hawaii has stringent firearms registration laws. Makes me wonder why the firearms weren't registered. It appears that druggies don't follow laws. :-(

IRT 2NDC unregistered guns. The biggest trafficker of unregistered guns to Hawaii are military personnel. They ship guns in their household goods (HHG) which is perfectly legal. When their HHG arrives in Hawaii, the military member has 10 days to register the guns in Hawaii. If they can't or don't comply, the guns become illegal. If the military member sells them locally, the buyer may opt not to register the guns. If the guns are stolen, of course, they remain illegal. The second largest source is people who die and their guns are given away or sold by the heirs. The third is people who buy guns on the mainland and bring them to Hawaii in their check-in baggage or ship them to Hawaii by mail, UPS, FEDEX, etc.

pcman you are right on the money. I got a bunch of long rifles for free from a former military officer. This was a while back...ended up turning them in to HPD. What a crime...I found out (a year later) one of them was worth thousands!!! Doh!

nah, his defense was that he was afraid a fed agent would shoot him first so he wanted to make sure he was armed just in case (just joking!).

But.......how can the cops prove that the gun and drugs were his. Like how Colt Brennan wasn't charged for the powdery substance in the DUI charge because they couldn't prove otherwise.

Something is missing in this story. What was the probable cause to search the drivers vehicle for a traffic stop?
