Open carry may come to Hawaii

KHON2 - The Team That Knows Hawaii | Bill could allow Hawaii residents to carry a gun. Hawaii has a "May Issue" concealed carry law, but most people are never issued a permit. So now they are trying for open carry... still permitted, but of the "Shall Issue" variety.
Police still worry.
Using all the tired arguments that have been used since 1987 when Florida adopted Shall Issue concealed carry, the police fear all of the things that never came to pass in Florida or Michigan or Ohio or any other state that allows citizens the means to effective self-defense. States never want to give up liberty to citizens. [h/t NRA-ILA]
