The Hawaii State Constitution States: “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
Hawaii is known for having some of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation, and is generally described as being anti-gun rights. In Hawaii No person shall acquire the ownership of a firearm, either by purchase, gift, inheritance, bequest, or in any other manner, until he has first procured from the chief of police of the county of his place of business, residence, or sojourn a permit to acquire.
Hawaii is a "may issue" state for concealed carry. "In an exceptional case, when an applicant shows reason to fear injury to the applicant's person or property," a license to carry a pistol or revolver may be granted or denied at the discretion of the county police chief. In practice however few if any concealed carry licenses are ever granted.
Carrying a loaded firearm, concealed or not concealed, including in a vehicle, is a class A felony. Unloaded firearms that are secured in a gun case and are accompanied by a corresponding permit are allowed to be transported in a vehicle between the permitted owner's residence or business and: a place of repair; a target range; a licensed dealer's place of business; an organized, scheduled firearms show or exhibit; a place of formal hunter or firearm use training or instruction; or a police station
Concealed carry and open carry are felonies without a permit to do so from the chief of police of your county. Although allowed by law in special circumstances of threat to self or property, the chiefs’ policy at present is to grant only to law enforcement and those military and security guards whose duties specifically require such. Private Citizens are denied.
Although Hawaii does not recognize any other state’s CCW permits and has no reciprocity agreements the following states do accept and recognize Hawaii’s CCW permits; Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Wisconsin. The only CCW permit that the state of Hawaii is compelled to recognize under federal law are those issued under the Peace Officer Safety act of 2004, known as HR 218 where any active duty or honorably retired peace officer can carry a concealed weapon in any state in the country.

Hawaii gun laws, unlike many of the states in the United States, requires any person wishing to purchase or obtain a firearm to apply for a Hawaii gun permit first, that allows the transaction of firearms.
The Hawaii gun permit to purchase extends to shotguns, rifle, and handguns. An individual must first apply for the permit to the chief of police pertaining to the county that the applicant resides in or place of business is located. The applicant must be at least 21 years of age and citizen of the United States. A permit to purchase a handgun is contingent to the applicant having completed a firearms safety course. The chief of police issuing the gun permit is required to assess the health of the applicant and to evaluate the person's ability to be able to own and operate a firearm in a safe and secure manner.
In the state of Hawaii the gun laws and state statutes regarding sell, possess, or carry firearms are strict and specific. Violating these gun laws will result in criminal offense charges considered as felonies and misdemeanors. The following are these gun laws and statutes for the state of Hawaii: It is illegal for any individual to acquire ownership of any firearm by any means without proper clearance from the county Chief of Police.
It is illegal to take possession of inherited firearms without first securing a proper permit to possess these firearms. And it is required to have license to carry concealed weapon.
It has been said that “It’s only a politician that can turn a lawful citizen into a criminal with a stroke of a pen.”
Here is a quote from a journalist in Hawaii, he states the following: “So let’s start with the confiscation of semi-automatics. It’s absolutely amazing that anyone could even consider calling these guns “assault weapons”.
This is such a blatant lie that I’m actually disgusted that the HRA, NRA, Gun Owners of America, and just residents of Hawaii aren’t screaming at the top of their lungs about this, one, and two, why are you infringing upon our right to enjoy our firearms on the range and for hunting?”
Hawaii is quickly on the path to becoming one of if not the single most gun restrictive states in the Country, and if left unchecked will soon face a backlash from the voters, don’t think that can happen in Hawaii, just look at the recall votes and gun law changes in Colorado and Illinois. The second amendment will not be abated, not even in Hawaii.
