The Free Beacon’s Stephen Gutowski writes:

A panel of judges from the Ninth Circuit court of appeals ruled on Tuesday that Hawaii’s effective ban on the open carry of guns is unconstitutional.

In a 2-1 ruling, the court found that the Second Amendment protects the right to openly carry a firearm in public for the purpose of self-defense. Judge Diarmuid F.

The majority reversed the lower court ruling that upheld Hawaii’s effective ban on all forms of gun carry in the state.
