Probably fired the gun because he was going to get beaten. Sounds like self defense to me.

Too bad Hawaii legislators and police chiefs don't understand how the states and localities that have concealed carry laws (and actually issue them) have lower crime rates. While the law says that Hawaii "may" issue concealed carry permits, the odds of actually getting one are less than getting hit by lightning...twice. Almost every day, I read about some violent crime on one or more of the islands. Criminals know (pretty well) that their intended victim won't be able to defend themselves and will not present a threat. So they feel safe attacking people. If the criminals thought that there was a chance that their intended victim might be carrying a firearm, they would think again about committing that crime. At least Hawaii should recognize CCW permits issued the other states that have CCW permits. There are 34 states that allow permit holders to carry in their states as well as the permit holder's home state. It's called reciprocity. Come on Hawaii, join the rest of America. Or seceded and get it over with.
