...not sure it will help any down the road if the effort to get Hawaii to go from "may-issue" to "shall-issue."

After all, HI still has its liberal anti-gun HPD Police Chief Louis "no-issue" Kealoha (Abercrombie's drinking-buddy), and if the Republican candidate for Governor doesn't win, then it's not likely anything pro-gun will happen (even in the HI State Legislature) -- so no real chance HI will go "shall-issue" on its own as it SHOULD have long ago. So as expected all long, it will have to be forced to do so by the courts.

Not that a Republican Governor is any guarantee of "Hope & Change," of course -- former Gov. Lingle was pretty useless -- but having a Republican Governor would be at least encouraging, if not SOME help (just not RINO Lingle again).

...just posting this "observation" partly because the Hawaii sub-forum is so (and typically) quiet...which isn't surprising as they have no OC or CC there. :-(

Still, there should be something to talk about: How to GET it, yes? ;-)
