Newport City Councilor Jeanne-Marie Napolitano has sponsored a resolution that would urge the Rhode Island Legislature and Congress to pass sweeping anti-gun legislation. A copy of this resolution can be found by clicking here.
The City Council will meet on February 13, at 6:30 pm and we expect this resolution to be considered then. Please attend this meeting and voice your opposition to all anti-gun legislation and urge your councilors to oppose this or any resolution that advocates for gun control and infringes on your Second Amendment rights.
Contact Newport officials and tell them that gun control does not work. Urge them to spend their time looking for reasonable solutions to existing problems, not creating reactionary laws for political points in the wake of tragedy.
