Rhode Island: One Last Push to Fight Gun Control Bills

Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- The Rhode Island Legislature is looking to wrap up its 2018 legislative session as early as the end of this week.  It is typical for lawmakers to suspend the rules in the waning days of session, and this becomes an especially dangerous time for gun owners when anti-gun bills can be quickly called to the floor for a vote.

Make no mistake, anti-gun groups and Bloomberg activists are working the halls trying to get more gun control this session.  They are aggressively pushing several bills which increase the purchase age for rifles and shotguns from 18 to 21.  They are also advocating for legislation to make schools complete “gun free zones” by abolishing concealed carry despite zero evidence that current Rhode Island state law isn’t working.  And remember, once the rules are suspended every introduced piece of legislation becomes a threat, including semi-auto bans and magazine capacity restrictions.

NRA-ILA, along with the Second Amendment Coalition, our official NRA state association, is calling on all gun owners to make one more trip to the Statehouse to join in solidarity with other gun owners and gun groups.  A strong presence is desperately needed to show legislators that Rhode Island gun owners are still paying attention, and we will vigorously oppose any additional infringements.

Please plan to visit the Statehouse on Wednesday, June 20 at 3:30 p.m. to rally with other gun owners.  Nothing is expected of you except your presence, and we suggest you wear yellow as we’ve done in the past.  Show your lawmakers that you fully oppose any attempt to impose further gun control in Rhode Island.

It is also imperative that you contact your state Senator and state Representativewith a simple message, “No more gun control bills.”

We left Rhode Island behind 2 years ago next month. Best decision we ever made, moved to Texas. Better housing costs, lower property taxes, no state income tax, economy is booming, unemployment low, nice friendly people, got my License to Carry, which I would never have never been able to pay off the right people in R.I. to get. Looks like I would have been considered a criminal if I stayed and kept my guns…. R.I. needs to clean out the General Assembly or the whole state will be lost to illegals very soon.

Thank you for keeping us up to date on legislation going on throughout our Great Country. We have been under ‘seige’ for quite sometime, by the ‘Libtards’. It’s time we put a stop to these attempts to ban our second amendment. It’s time we show these ‘Libtards’, we will no longer tolerate their abuse of our rights. Everytime they attempt to infringe on our rights, we will push back and demand the courts order they stop their nonsensical attempts to infringe on our Constitutional Rights. The ‘Libtards’ need to understand that everytime they do something to change laws to their… Read more »
