What is the penalty for violating state firearm laws?

Under Hawaii law, if a convicted felon possesses a gun, s/he is guilty of a class B felony. A person is guilty of a class C felony if s/he has a gun even though s/he is restricted from owning a firearm because s/he:

  • is not able to own a gun under federal gun laws;
  • is a fugitive from justice; or
  • has a felony charge pending.1

Any other person who possesses a gun or ammunition illegally is guilty of a misdemeanor.1

A class B felony is punishable by up to ten years in prison, a fine of up to $25,000, or both. A class C felony is punishable by up to five years in prison, a fine of up to $10,000, or both.3 A misdemeanor is punishable by up to one year in jail, a fine of up to $2,000, or both.4
