There were two previous topics on Young v Hawaii, but both are now locked.
Young v. Hawaii Orals (CA9)
Young v Hawaii - Ninth Circuit Panel decision upholds right to public carry

CA9 reversed itself en banc. Now the case has been petitioned to the Supreme Court.


This petition presents the same issue presented in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc., v. Corlett, .... Like the New York statutory scheme at issue in NYSRPA , Hawaii maintains a statutory scheme that denies permits to ordinary law-abiding persons who seek to carry a firearm (openly or concealed) outside the home for self-defense. Indeed, unlike the New York scheme, where some permits actually have been issued, Hawaii's scheme is a permitting system in name only, because the statute has been used to deny all permit applications during the nine years this case has been in litigation.

The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience.

Seems like it's a better and cleaner case for the SCOTUS because it's a 'right' entirely denied to all by proxy legislation.
