    Today the Ninth Circuit ruled in Baker v Kealoha and applied the San Diego CA Peruta finding to Hawaii. This states that the 'showing good cause' requirement to issue a concealed carry permit violates the 2nd Amendment. Hawaii will probably appeal, but it is a step in the right direction. Currently the only way to be granted a concealed carry permit in Hawaii is to be the Governor's brother in law.

    This is yet another reminder why the fight in California should matter for people outside of California.

    Hope you don't mind but I grabbed this and posted it word for word to our FB page. It's encouraging when we get these wins.

    <Why there aren't any school shootings in Israel!

    I have a friend and his wife who live in Hawaii, he also has a motorhome here in the mainland and wants a gun with him. Sent the story to him so he has some hope of being allowed to carry. Told him it'd be a while though.

    Lets wait to see if it sticks - the 9th circuit got this one right but it still remains the most overturned circuit court in the nation...

    If it doesn't stick then at least we know where we stand and know that we only have one option left.

    I went to look for news stories on this - searched for "Hawaii Shall Issue" this headline pop'd up:
    "In Hawaii, Sex With A Prostitute May Be Legal For Undercover Cops"

    Anyway - this was the link I saw first, which started me looking to media coverage:
