Rhode Island: In the Cold of Winter, Guns Remain a Hot Topic in Providence

Rhode Island: In the Cold of Winter, Guns Remain a Hot Topic in Providence

Only one week removed from thousands of Rhode Island gun owners filling the Statehouse, Gov. Gina Raimondo quickly responded this week with her own press event by welcoming out-of-town gun grabber Gabby Giffords to Providence.  Last week's message seemed relatively clear.  People who actually live in the Ocean State do not want any more gun laws.  Reiterate your opposition to these bills (described below) by clicking the “Take Action” button below.

Despite the protest, both the House and Senate Judiciary Committees continue to work on a pair of gun bills, while even more gun control bills hit the hopper in the General Assembly.  This week the Senate adopted S.2004A by Sen. Cynthia Coyne.  The bill bans 3D guns and so-called "ghost guns."  As previously reported, this legislation incorrectly uses terms like "undetectable" and "untraceable" interchangeably, leading to a confusing and problematic piece of legislation which only threatens to ensnare unwitting, law-abiding gun owners.  The House Judiciary Committee is also considering a substitute bill to their version of the 3D bill, H.7102.  This bill was initially held for further study after a recent House Judiciary hearing, but we expect both chambers are going to take action on this legislation.  

Other dangerous bills which were recently introduced include:

H.7327 by Rep. Teresa Tanzi would increase the age for purchase of firearms and ammunition from 18 to 21.  

S.2130 by Sen. Gayle Goldin would ban magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds. This measure would ban magazines commonly-used for self-defense and would only hinder law-abiding gun owners in dangerous situations.

S.2131 by Sen. Joshua Miller would ban possession, sale and transfer of popular semi-automatic rifles.  Similar to S.2130, this measure would only prevent law-abiding gun owners from using the most effective means of defending themselves.

Criminals do not follow the law.  As long as lawmakers keep pushing bills that restrict your constitutional rights, they need to continue to hear from you.  Contact your Representatives and Senators TODAY, and respectfully request that they oppose all gun control legislation.
