Open carry is prohibited in Hawaii. However, should you be wealthy or connected enough to get one of the rare Hawaii carry permits, the law makes no distinction between open and concealed carry. But, doing so would almost certainly result in the loss of the permit. We consider Hawaii to be one of the top 5 rights restricted states in the union.
