35 arrested in Providence on drug, gun trafficking counts

This is what needs to be done to get guns off the streets and away from criminals. More of these arrests needs to be done and less should be done to further restriction of gun ownership by law abiding citizens.

Can someone tell me how many of the guns that were seized would not have been in the hands of criminals if the gun grabbers got it their way with the nonsense bills that have been introduced this session? I think that would be zero guns!

I'd love to find out how many are .32 revolvers.

The biggest part of the joke is the fact that this huge task force met every five or six weeks last summer.
If the task force was really interested they could have clamped down on the gangs/drugs and collected a LOT more than 15 guns and 35 arrests in a matter of weeks not a year and a half.
That fact alone tells me this is more for show than getting results.

I am glad they made the arrests they did and confiscated the guns they did, but I would have expected a lot more guns to be confiscated than there was. Maybe there are less "illegal" guns on the streets than some people would like us to believe since they keep introducing these so called common sense gun bills....
