Guns in Schools in Hawaii

Posted on January 2, 2012

Hawaii generally does not prohibit the carrying of guns in schools.

Any student who possesses a firearm at an elementary or secondary school shall be “excluded” for not less than one year.1 The Superintendent, on a case-by-case basis, may modify this exclusion. If a child is excluded from attending school, the Superintendent shall ensure that substitute educational activities or other appropriate assistance shall be provided.2

See our Guns in Schools policy summary for a comprehensive discussion of this issue.
