Hawaii

From the 2010 annual report on firearm activity in Hawaii:

Licenses to Carry Firearms 

"  Hawaii’s county police departments also process license applications for the open and/or concealed

carry of firearms in public. Statewide in 2010, 183 employees of private security firms were issued

carry licenses, and seven (3.7%) were rejected. Three private citizens applied for a concealed carry

license in the City & County of Honolulu and were rejected for not meeting the criteria established by the chief of police
."
