Unsatiated gun grabbers are back at it in Providence next week. In their minds, there is always another gun bill to pass until they have completely banned firearms. This hasn’t been about public policy for a long time. They just passed a magazine ban last summer and cannot be bothered to wait around to see if it will work like they say it will. That is because we all know what the results are: More infringements for law-abiding citizens, and the beat goes on for criminals. And yet, they are back to do more of the same.
The House Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hear nearly 30 gun bills starting Monday, April 17 at 2 p.m. While there are a handful of pro-gun bills, none of that legislation is expected to move. Their robust anti-gun agenda will garner all of the attention. This dangerous list of gun control bill includes a semi-auto ban, one-gun-a-month, mandatory storage and an effort to put gun shops in Rhode Island out of business. You can view the agenda for Monday’s lengthy hearing here.
Rhode Island already has some of the harshest gun control laws in the country. We certainly do not need any more. Please contact your Representative and respectively request that they oppose any new gun control legislation!
