Gun laws in Hawaii operate on a county level with Hawaii using a “May Issue” policy towards issuing concealed carry permits. However, permits have only been issued to the public on only a few rare occasions. Mandatory county reporting was started in 2000 and since that date only four permits have been issued. Two were issued in Maui in 2001 and two on Kauai, one to a local judge in 2006 and another in 2013 to an active military member for 12 days. There is currently a case before the federal courts to try and force Hawaii into issuing permits however this will take years to resolve with no doubt many appeals.
