Hawaiians Arming Themselves in Record Numbers

I am heartened by this news that even in Obama’s home state, there’s been a great Obama gun rush. The really interesting thing is that it seems to have started in 2004. It is unfortunate, that the newspaper was deceived by liars and swindlers at the VPC:

But national surveys indicate that Hawaii’s registration increase is bucking the national trend, Rand said.

“The gun lobby is out there pushing the story that everybody wants a gun, people are flooding out to get a concealed carry license and the gun industry is booming,” she said. “But surveys show a consistent decrease in household and personal gun ownership (nationally).”

That’s funny, because the actual numbers suggest the trend is indeed national, and it’s not just limited to guns in the home. It’s disappointing that the Honolulu advertiser was taken by these frauds. Even more disappointing they didn’t take the five minutes necessary to fact check them.
