Honolulu mayor aims to sign bill limiting concealed guns
Honolulu Mayor Rick Blangiardi said he plans to sign into law a ban on concealed firearms in 13 “sensitive places” across Oahu after the City Council this week passed Bill 57.
“Absolutely,” Blangiardi replied when asked whether he would sign the measure into law, during a Friday appearance on the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s “Spotlight Hawaii” livestream program.
Blangiardi also said the city will provide signage to businesses and facilities to indicate whether concealed weapons are allowed on the premises or prohibited. The list of sensitive places includes schools and child care facilities, hospitals, public transit, polling places, businesses that serve alcohol and “large public gatherings, including protests.”
