Gun Bill Hearings RI General Assembly

April 25 @ 4:30 pm - 11:00 pm

2a2 copy

TUESDAY, APRIL 25, a hearing is scheduled for the numerous gun bills that have been introduced ranging from a ban on magazines over 10 rounds, making it illegal for permit holders to carry in schools, and more. There is also a bill that aims to have a streamlined application for concealed carry permits with an appeal process if you are denied.

If you can, Its crucial to show up to the state house Tuesday at 4:30pm and be heard. If you prefer not to speak you can simply sign in opposition. If we don’t have a presence, if we go unseen, they have no reason not to pass this dangerous legislation.
