Excellent -- and it's about time...this lawsuit is great news!
And it seems to be the ONLY way to get things right over there -- FORCE the State of Hawaii to recognize the 2nd Amendment of the US...and it IS a state, whether it likes it or not, even if it often acts like some foreign country. Said 2nd Amendment means citizens can keep (own) and bear (carry) arms, yet in HI all you can do is half of that: Keep (own) arms at home only (and ONLY after they are registered with the police department). As for the OTHER half of the Amendment -- the right to BEAR arms -- the citizens of HI can't do that. Criminals, of course, sure can...just read the Honolulu Star-Advertiser to read about all the criminal attacks -- knifings, beatings and shootings -- every day against unarmed citizens who have NO way legally to protect themselves.
It'll be tough going over there, however, since HI is staunchly Democrat, and their newspaper -- the Honolulu Star-Advertiser -- likewise since some of my pro-gun posts get censored (apparently) since some of them do not show up after I hit the Submit button.
Still, HI is one of THE most repressive anti-gun states ever: Besides having to register guns within 3 days of purchase (or within 3 days of moving to Hawaii), they need to dump that MAY-issue CC permit system and move to SHALL-issue. Especially since there is no OC over there (citizens can't carry that way) and the Honolulu Police Chief HARDLY EVER grants CC permit applications (citizens can't carry THAT way, either). Consequently, the 2nd Amendment is null & void in HI...half a right is no right at all.
So kudos to Christopher Baker! He's doing the only thing that apparently will get things changed over there, since no other ways (if any) to affect change have been effective since statehood. How HI has gotten away with being UNconstitutional since 1959 is amazing.
WTH is the SCOTUS -- which is, in part, charged with keeping state laws constitutional -- when you need them to stand up for something REALLY important? And where has the ACLU been all these years?
I hope this lawsuit is successful...too bad, however, that a state has to be FORCED to allow its citizens to exercise their US Constitutional rights...
