Attorney argues Hawaii law is a ban on carrying guns

HONOLULU — A challenge to Hawaii’s strict gun laws was back before a federal appeals court Thursday, where an attorney representing the state tried to defend a law that allowed officials to deny George Young a permit to carry a loaded gun in public. 

Young’s attorney, Alan Beck, said the law is a de-facto ban on guns outside the home.

  1. That's a story from last year. Last month, the Ninth Circuit ruled on it:

    THERE IS NO RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS.

  2. From the article:

    “Hawaii’s law is squarely rooted in a long historical tradition going back seven centuries,” he said. “That tradition shows that carrying firearms in public without good cause has never been part of the right to keep and bear arms.”

    If "We've always done it this way" had any legal weight, there would still be chattel slavery in the U.S.

    No CCW permits issued in Hawaii County in over 20 years...

    IIRC, in Heller v. DC part of the ruling was that a state could regulate open carry, or concealed carry, but not both.

      Don't an awful lot of third world shitholes fall into that category?
