Hawaii Goes Coconuts for Guns

HONOLULU — It’s a controversial yet constitutional right, the right to bear arms.

Gun store owners on the island said they have seen a major increase of people trying to buy guns. At the X-Ring Security and Firearms store rifles are flying off the shelves.

Brian Takaba said sales have doubled with four times more customers searching for guns.

“There’s been a definite increase right after the election,” said Takaba.

“I think everyone is just afraid of losing the second amendment right try to get it before you can’t,” said Takaba.
