The Hawaii Supreme Court Just Turned Its Back On the Rights of the Second Amendment (Guest: Stephen Willeford)

The Gun Owners of America spokesman explains why the state is setting a dangerous precedent, especially when it comes to the rights of gun owners.

Hawaii’s Supreme Court has chosen to abandon the Constitution in favor of the…Spirit of Aloha.

Just a few days ago, the high court for the sunny state ruled that Second Amendment rights do not extend to Hawaii citizens, despite it being part of the United States of America.

Justice Todd Eddins noted that the state could “retain the authority to require” individuals to have proper permits before carrying firearms in public. What’s more, the Hawaiian Constitution “does not afford a right to carry firearms in public places for self-defense.”

“The spirit of Aloha clashes with a federally-mandated lifestyle that lets citizens walk around with deadly weapons during day-to-day activities,” the report read. “The history of the Hawaiian Islands does not include a society where armed people move about the community to possibly combat the deadly aims of others.”

But what happens when situations emerge and citizens need to defend themselves – or if Hawaii runs into an “active shooter” event?

Joining us now to discuss this matter is Stephen Willeford, a spokesman for the Gun Owners of America. Stephen was also the “hero with a gun” in the 2017 Sutherland Springs incident, which he has since co-written a book about. We welcome him to the show.
