The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on March 24th issued its long-awaited decision in Young v. Hawaii (full decision embedded at bottom of post).  The case presented the Circuit with a not-so-straightforward question: Since Hawaii heavily regulates the concealed carriage of firearms, which licensing scheme has been upheld by the Ninth Circuit, can Hawaii even more heavily regulate the open carriage of firearms?

The Ninth Circuit’s answer?  Yes, Hawaii can.

A lot has been said in a short period of time about the Supreme Court’s opinion handed down in New York State Rifle & Pistol Ass’n v. City of New York just a week ago.  Most gun rights supporters are frustrated. Many accuse Chief Justice Roberts of caving to pressure.  Some consider the case to be a complete loss.  In reality, it is just the opposite.
