NAGR Sends Legal Warning Letter to Honolulu PD for Unlawful Permit Delays

Jan 15, 2024

The National Association for Gun Rights sent a legal warning letter to Chief Joe Logan, Honolulu Police Department, demanding an end to their delay of firearm permit applications submitted before January 1, 2024.   

“Firearm permit applications submitted prior to the effective date may not be delayed under the provisions of a law that had not yet taken effect, and to do so violates not only state law, but also the United States Constitution’s Second Amendment,” stated Hannah Hill, Director of Legal Affairs for the National Association for Gun Rights, in the letter sent to Chief Logan.

It is NAGR’s contention that the delays are intentional and unlawful per the provisions of Act 52 which, “itself is an egregious violation not only of the Second Amendment, but the U.S. Supreme Court’s precedents in D.C. v. Heller and NYSRPA v. Bruen. It is both highly surprising and deeply concerning that the Honolulu Police Department – already open to litigation over its enforcement of this statute – further lays itself open to direct legal action by trampling the Second Amendment in ways Act 52 never authorized or even contemplated,” the letter further states.

The letter may be found here.

The letter warns that holding carry and permit applications submitted in 2023 to the provisions of Act 52 may result in legal action being taken by the National Foundation for Gun Rights, legal arm of the National Association for Gun Rights.

         The National Association for Gun Rights is the nation’s largest “no compromise” pro-gun organization, with 4.5 million members nationwide.
