    This is despicable

    Who do they think they are - MD? DC? Seriously - that is pretty grim!
    Women Tell Lawmakers They Want the Right to Protect Themselves
    Hawaii Reporter

    In the last 15 years, no law abiding citizen applying for a permit to carry a concealed firearm in Honolulu has been granted one -- not one domestic violence victim, not one person whose life was in danger, not one person working where they may be robbed at gunpoint, writes Malia Zimmerman.

    And the police chief has no plans to change that under Hawaiis current law, which says the police departments highest officer "may issue" a concealed carry permit should he choose to do so.

    Well, at least in MD we can still buy most guns...... We just can't carry them anyplace other than to and from the range.

    That's the way it is & not likely to change.

    The voters will eventually come to thier senses...just like the other 49 (or so) states, and what the "Police Chief" thinks won't matter

    I've always heard Hawaii was a paradise, guess it's true! I mean, if the crime rate is so low that no CCW is needed, what else is there to say? Except maybe FIRE THE POLICE CHIEF!!!

    Glad to see that a women's group is asking for this, this should be some good PR for the pro 2A crowd!

    They haven't come to their senses in Illinois, New York City, or Boston. And they've lost their senses in San Francisco.

    Personally I think the entire country has lost its senses. I mean, now they want to sell our seaports to Arab countries??

    How do you "further the Second Ammendment rights" of someone? They are there, we have them as Americans or you've given them up in some way (i.e. fellon).

    The kicker, as always, is that the police are not responsible to protect you either. I bet if a rape victim took the PD to court for failing to do their job that Captain Ancheta would be up on the stand right quick saying how they can't protect everyone.

    Then again, Boston has had it's crime rate skyrocket in recent years, and "shall issue" CCW has a snowball's chance in Hell there.

    Who does this dude think he is. I tell ya people better wake up 95. I betcha if some attacks his wife or daughter he will issue one. Personally, I think if a person is a good citizen they should be able to carry. Moreover, the government should say that you can carry CCW in all 50 states. I think once you apply in your home state that the information should also be processed by the Feds. Then this would in turn grant you a 50 state legal carry license. This seems logical being our current terror threat. I don't know. I would have been glad to wait longer or even do a longer form.

    In Hawaii there is only 2 known CWPs that have been issued, 1 was issued to the governor, The other was issued to the civilian police armourer, I guess their life is more important then anyone elses, I mean you wouldnt want an officers firearm to break or a bill not to be signed on time ...This is disgusting.
    Stupidity cannot be cured with money, or through education, or by legislation. Stupidity is not a sin, the victim can't help being stupid. But stupidity is the only universal capital crime; the sentence is death, there is no appeal and execution is carried out automatically and without pity.
