    Too bad there's not all that many legal firearms there to begin with. Hi. needs to pass some better carry laws!

    Still, baby steps are still steps in the right direction.

    I wonder if this changes anything in practice or if it is just for the show? After all the 2nd and 4th amendments are already there. Anyone more familiar with HI or constitutional law?

    Amendment II

    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
    Amendment IV

    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
