Behind the Scenes Interview with Young v. State of Hawaii Attorney Stephen Stamboulie


Hawaii, USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- George Young sued the state of Hawaii in 2012 after the state denied him a permit to carry a gun in public. Hawaii officials argued that the Second Amendment only guarantees the right to bear arms in one's home. They claimed that there is no inherent right to carry firearms outside one's house.

The three-judge panel was split on the decision but ruled in Young's favor.

The recent case opinion, in Young v. State of Hawaii, written by Judge O’Scannlain makes a clear, logical, and compelling case that open carry outside the home is a right protected by the Second Amendment.

Here is a behind the scenes look at the Young vs State of Hawaii decision rendered recently by the 3 judge panel from the 9th Circuit.

Joining Bill Frady on Lock n Load Radio, Wednesday 8 August, 2018, was Co-Counsel for Mr. Young, Stephen Stamboulieh. Over the next 40 minutes or so, he and I look at both the facts so far and what may be waiting as this case moves forward. This may very well be a historic moment for gun owners, and the country for that matter. Stephen Stamboulieh lays it all out there for your consideration.

Worth the listen.

This isn't surprising, at all:

Hawaii Wants Second Chance In Open Carry Court Case

State and local officials last week filed a 114-page request to overturn the decision of a three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit and send the case before a larger 11-judge en banc panel for a retrial. At stake is Hawaii’s ability to keep its strict limits on the unconcealed carry of firearms in public, which a two-judge majority found in July was unconstitutional.

“The importance of this case is beyond dispute,” argues Hawaii officials in the filing. “The panel struck down carry restrictions that have been in effect in Hawaii in some form for over 150 years. In doing so, it overruled a sovereign State’s judgment on a matter of the utmost concern to public safety. And it did so on the basis of a severe misunderstanding of state law.”

The case involves George Young, whose repeated attempts to obtain a permit going back as far as 2011 were rebuffed in a state where it is notoriously hard to be granted a carry permit of any sort. Young held that his denial of an application for a handgun license stepped on his Second Amendment rights to carry a loaded firearm openly for self-defense outside of the home and the panel agreed. Hawaii law narrowly allows the ability to open carry to a select few — such as security guards — which the state supported in arguments earlier this year. This, the majority held, was just plain wrong.

Hawaii has only been a State for 59 years, what was law there before 1959 and it became a state is not a valid argument.
