I think it's going to take bringing suit against the State of Hawaii, since for 51 years HI has been, IMO, UNCONSITUTIONAL in that it effectively ignores the 2nd Amdnement/RKBA and denies residents of HI to exercise their right of self-defense.
I plan on moving to HI but it won't be until the Summer of 2012, so I can't be of any boots-on-the-ground help now to you, but when I get there, I had planned on applying for a CC permit, would be denied (as expected) and then sue the state for denying me my rights to SOME form of carry. IMO, a state -- since it's SUPPOSED to be part of the Union and thus the U.S. Constitution is SUPPOSED to apply -- can not ignore ANY of the Bill of Rights. But HI does ignore the 2nd Amendment, for whatever reason. So if a state does not allow SOME form of carrying --- either OC or CC -- then it essentially denies the RKBA, and THAT is unconstitutional. On top of that you must REGISTER your guns!
Consequently, Hawaii has got to be the WORST violator since it "allegedly" allows CC but at the same time never issues permits, so in reality, CC is denied. And by not allowing OC, THAT form of carry is also denied. So HI does not allow one to exercise the RKBA...EXCEPT the right to own a gun if it is kept inside your home. But you can't BEAR any arms...except inside your home.
Even if SOME people are given a CC permit in HI, MOST everyone else is not...that is, again IMO, failure to provide "equal protection under the law."
As for states, either ALL Americans have the same basic rights or they do not, regardless of what state they live in. HI should not be exempt, it's not a foreign country even if it does act like it in some ways.
The kind of data you are asking for here would be quite useful is such a suit as it seems you are going that route. Or, do you have other plans less "escalated" than that?
I don't think anything LESS than a full-blown lawsuit will work since (as I said) HI has chosen to deny RKBA rights since 1959, so it would be reasonable to assume HI will NOT voluntarily change, it will have to be FORCED to change.
You mention your organization "Hawaii CCW." Is yours the only one fighting for the right to carry? If so, have you thought about starting something in HI like some other states have, like the "Hawaii Citizens Defense League" (which does not specify either CC or OC in its name, but it covers both)?
Whatever, good luck to you...wish I could help but I wouldn't be aplying until 2012...and who knows what will be HI's CC or OC situation then.
