2020 Gun Safety Poll Results In
Overwhelming support for common-sense gun safety measures in Rhode Island. Highlights include:
71.5% Support Limiting Magazines to 10 Rounds
70.5% Support a Ban on Assault Weapons
Less than 20% have a gun in their home
The Ocean State topped the list of U.S. states for NICS gun background checks in March. We’ve timelined the events that have lead up to this shocking new statistic.
From the RICAGV Blog
A great victory for common-sense gun safety reform.
Timeline of events leading to a 132% increase in FBI background checks in one month for Rhode Island.
The Ocean State is not just stocking up on toilet paper and hand wipes :/
What it is and how it works.
RI Police Chiefs Association ask Gov. Raimondo to extend time to complete background checks.
Sign the petition to limit magazine capacity to 10 rounds in RI…
Representatives vote overwhelmingly to support a ban on untraceable and undetectable “ghost guns.”
Kicking off the rally with a poem was Jaychele Schenck, youth organizer and leader with Young Voices.
Gov. Raimondo and Attorney General Neronha announced four common-sense gun safety bills.
2020 Legislative Agenda
Banning Ghost Guns
These do-it-yourself firearms can be built in the home, creating untraceable guns for use by anyone, and circumventing background checks that prevent criminals from owning a gun.
Regulating High Capacity Magazines
Limiting ammunition magazines to 10 rounds makes it harder for killers to commit mass murder and gives people critical seconds to flee or try to fight back.
Gun Control IS Constitutional
In 2008, District of Columbia v. Heller affirmed:
“the [Second Amendment] right was not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.”
