The information here is provided for your situational awareness on the subject of "RAP BACK" that took affect on December 5, 2016
SB 2954, SECTION 1. The legislature finds that criminal background checks on firearms applicants are critical to ensure the safety of the community.The rap back system is a service of the Federal Bureau of Investigation that provides continuous criminal record monitoring for authorized government agencies, including law enforcement agencies, and notifies them when an individual subject to a criminal history record check is arrested for a criminal offense anywhere in the country.This notification will allow county police departments in Hawaii to evaluate if the owner of a firearm may continue to legally possess and own firearms.The purpose of this Act is to authorize county police departments in Hawaii to enroll firearms applicants and individuals who are registering their firearms into the rap back system.

RAP BACK is part of "Next Generation Identification (NGI)" program. The Rap Back service allows authorized agencies to receive notification of activity on individuals who hold positions of trust (e.g. school teachers, daycare workers) or who are under criminal justice supervision or investigation, thus eliminating the need for repeated background checks on a person from the same applicant agency. Prior to the deployment of Rap Back, the national criminal history background check system provided a one-time snapshot view of an individual’s criminal history status. With Rap Back, authorized agencies can receive on-going status notifications of any criminal history reported to the FBI after the initial processing and retention of criminal or civil transactions. By using fingerprint identification to identify persons arrested and prosecuted for crimes, Rap Back provides a nationwide notice to both criminal justice and noncriminal justice authorities regarding subsequent actions.

SB9 - Firearms Insurance, Mandatory coverage and permit to acquire a firearm shall be renewed every five years during ownership...click here to view source document. For those who believe that Rap Back will not affect them because they will stop buying firearm, then this bill will be the catch all. Fight hard to oppose this bill. "This Act shall take effect on January 1, 2019."
It is my opinion that "Firearm Insurance" as stated in SB9 is nothing more than a TAXlevied on firearm ownership.
