We hope to see everyone there. It interesting that there are no DV bills at this hearing so we expect they will be heard at a later point.

Yeah, I am sure it will be a late night.
For those who plan on coming up later, I can recommend turning into Capitol TV (both on Cox and streamed live I believe) and see the first witnesses since they are usually the "expert" witnesses. The antis are full of BS, and it is worth fact checking some of their statements online if you have a chance and bring it to the committees attention when you testify.

Here are some "facts" from the antis. We know most of their "facts" are either lies or taken out of context and here is a link to their talking points so feel free to fact check them.

I will look them over. At first glance, they used "Mother Jones" as a source, which is pretty funny.

"Limiting HCMs to 10 rounds protects law enforcement. “HCMs pose a danger to innocent people and particularly to police officers” (Heller II, 670 F.3d at 1264; Shew v. Malloy) who may be forced to confront persons with more ammunition than they have. Current and former RI law enforcement officers support this initiative." Are they aware that the same bills they are supporting will criminalize off-duty police officers who often carry firearms with 10+ round mags...? Most Glocks come to mind.

These guys don't know what they are talking about.
Police will argue they are always on the job, which is a nonsense argument. That would mean they are drinking on the job if they have a beer for dinner and they should be fired.

I assume you guys have already contacted the committee, but please consider doing it via the NRA's website:

I went ahead and did that, but I think Chippendale told us a few years ago that legislators generally ignored mass-mailed emails like this. Emails from your individual email addresses with your own words have a lot more impact.
