2015: H5872 - Misdemenors and firearm ownership

Postby newportri » Fri Mar 13, 2015 4:14 am

This act would prohibit any person convicted of a misdemeanor offense under ยง 12-29-2 (a crime involving domestic violence) from purchasing, owning, transporting, carrying, or possessing any firearm. Offenses punishable as petty misdemeanors would be excluded from this prohibition. Further, it would provide that those people who have had their convictions expunged, set aside, or who have had their civil rights restored would not be considered a prohibited person under this chapter.

....the right to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
