Concealed Carry Win on Big Island

from HIFICO, March 29, 2024

We are delighted to announce another victory for Second Amendment rights in Hawaii.

At the close of last year, we shared the story of HIFICO member, Blake Day, who was unjustly denied a concealed carry permit by the County of Hawaii after he used a pepper ball gun for self-defense. This denial clearly infringed upon Mr. Day's rights. In response, attorneys Alan Beck and Rick Holcombe initiated a lawsuit on his behalf.

Four months later, the lawsuit has been successfully resolved, affirming Mr. Day's right to carry a firearm for self-defense. Mr. Day has now been issued his concealed carry license. Moreover, the county has agreed to a stipulation ensuring that the Hawaii County Police Department will not invalidate or revoke Mr. Day's License, unless he becomes ineligible to hold it. Furthermore, the Police Department is required to implement new concealed carry regulations in accordance with HRS Chapter 134, guaranteeing that similar injustices do not occur to other law-abiding individuals.

The Hawaii Firearms Coalition has consistently argued against the excessive discretion county police departments have in issuing concealed carry permits. The Second Amendment does not mandate a two-step procedure for the right to keep and bear arms. The legal ownership of a firearm inherently includes the right to carry it. We remain committed to ensuring that all counties respect and adhere to this principle.
