INTRODUCTION
Pursuant to Rule 29-2 of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, the County of Kauai (“Kauai”) requests leave to file the accompanying Amicus Curiae Letter in support of the State of Hawaii’s Amicus Curiae Brief. Appellees consent to the filing of this Letter, but Appellants have refused consent.
IDENTITY AND INTEREST OF AMICUS
Kauai is one of four counties in the State of Hawaii and is governed by HRS 134-9. The Court’s ruling in Baker v. Kealoha will have a direct impact on Kauai, and may have deleterious effects on officer and public safety. Kauai is extremely concerned that having people carry guns in public raises the risks that routine conflicts will turn deadly. Further, Kauai believes that upholding HRS 134-9’s restrictions serves to reduce gun related crimes. Finally, Kauai believe it is important to uphold its Chief of Police’s current interest in having the discretion to deny concealed carry permits to those applicants who do not make the showing required under HRS 134-9.
THE STATE OF HAWAII’S AMICUS CURIAE BRIEF WILL ASSIST THE COURT AND IS RELEVANT TO THE DISPOSITION OF THE CASE.
The arguments made by the State of Hawaii in its amicus brief provide additional reasons why Honolulu county defendants' petition should be granted. Those arguments are thus also thereby relevant to the disposition of the  petition.
