You May Soon See People Openly Carrying Guns In Hawaii …While a new federal law passed by Congress to control gun violence is likely to have little effect here, a Supreme Court decision loosening gun rules is significant.

In the waning days of a momentous session for conservatives, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a short order that was a big win for Hawaii gun rights advocates.

Known as a grant, vacate and remand, or GVR, order, the two-sentence statement issued on Thursday struck down a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit that had supported Hawaii laws that had been used to generally deny people the right to carry guns outside the home, with few exceptions.

The high court essentially told the San Francisco-based appellate court: See what the Supreme Court just said in a similar case, New York State Rifle & Pistol Assn., Inc. v. Bruen, and get it right this time.
