6-15-2017: ALERT!!! All hands on deck, gun rights are under ATTACK!!!
There is a big push from the antis to pass the so-called "PROTECT RHODE ISLAND FAMILIES ACT" (H5510
/S0405) bill that are nothing more than gun confiscation bills that will remove due process and discretion when it comes to domestic violence cases. The No Guns in School (H5345
/S0187) bill (will prohibit CCW permit holder from carrying in schools) also have a lot of support and it is possible both of these bills and possibly even a bill that will restrict magazine capacity (H5155
/S0223) to an arbitrary number of 10 rounds!
These bills were recommended to be held for further study when the Judiciary Committees heard several hours of testimony and recommended the bills to be held for further study. However, we expect the House/Senate rules will be suspended shortly, and this is when the Bloomberg funded anti gun lobby will try to push these bills through WITHOUT any further input from the public. The bills actually have so much traction the antis believe they will pass!!
It is critical that you contact the General Assembly and let them know you are opposed to these bills and ask them so support pro gun bills such as the CCW reform bill (H6039
/S0664), silencer bill (S0399
), and CCW reciprocity bill (H6040
Please take a few minutes and fill out the forms below (it will be sent to the entire House and Senate!
These bills are ANTI gun bills.
These bills are PRO gun bills.
