Notice of Supplemental Authority
COMES NOW THE PLAINTIFF-APPELLANT, George K. Young Jr., submitsthis Notice of Supplemental Authority in support of his argument the H.R.S. 134-8complete ban on short barrel rifles fails strict scrutiny. Mr. Young g attaches thefollowing sources on rifles

government interest in banning them. To illustrate this point Mr. Young uses theM4 rifle. It is a variant of the original AR-15 rifle designed by Eugene Stoner andmade by ArmaLite. The M4 is a shorter and lighter variant of the M16A2 assaultrifle, with 80% parts in common. The M4 has a 14.5 in (370 mm) barrel; itsshorter barrel allows its user to better operate in close quarters engagement such asin the home where the right to self-defense is most acute. Many short barrel rifles(carbines) are shortened versions of full size rifles, firing the same ammunition at alower rotational velocity due to a shorter barrel length. Accordingly they areactually safer for the general public than long barrel rifles for self-defense withinthe home because there is less risk of a stray bullet penetrating a wall and hittingan innocent bystander. For the very seem reasons they are better for home defenseshort barrel rifles are in fact less deadly outside the home. Per 
, rifles are aclass of arms and short barrel rifles as a type of rifle are protected arms. Therecomplete ban fails any level of heightened scrutiny. Strict scrutiny should beapplied and HRS 134-8 unconstitutional ban on them must be struck down.Respectfully submitted this 31st day of March, 2013s/ Alan Beck_________________________ Alan Beck (HI Bar No. 9145)
