Or you could merely inform the fool that's not how case law works. I doubt anyone in Hawaii is losing sleep for a decision in a San Diego County case.
Someone in Hawaii will have to gain standing for an appeal and challenge based on the Peruta decision.
Chris Baker has been in the forefront of making changes in HI, and he's posted here (some time back) about what he's doing. Can't say I know of anyone else there in HI who is doing much (my apologies to anyone who IS doing something, but I don't know/haven't heard about it).
As for Chris, however, I thought his lawsuit was either dismissed (on a technicality) or the court refused to hear it quite a while ago. Didn't know it was still alive.
I hope you guys get a ruling that throws out your "no issue system". A federal judge ruled that Illinois' Unlawful Use of Weapons Law, which outlawed carry, was unconstitutional and directed the legislature to pass carry legislation. Last year at the end of the spring legislative session we got a Shall issue concealed carry law passed. The first of the licenses went out this month for applications taken from instructors applying 12/18/13 and non-instructors applications started this month. Mine went in on 1/5 and it was approved 3/10 so I expect it in the mail this week.
I hope you continue to fight in the legislature and in the courts. In Illinois we did both, it was about a 10 year battle. Don't give up. I know a lot of people said "Illinois will never get carry!" Or Illinois will get carry after they are packing heat on the trains in Tokyo!" Nay sayers "Time to eat crow!"
Really?The downside would be there would be no preemption and local ordinances could prohibit carry of any kind.
