Tiverton Town Council to Consider 2A Sanctuary Resolution
May 28, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Tiverton Needs You
On the agenda for the May 28, 2019 meeting is a resolution to pronouce Tiverton a “Second Amendment Sanctuary City,” following the lead of Burrillville and several other rural Rhode Island towns.
Immediately following the Burrillville Town Council resolution being passed, the Burrillville Police Chief flatly rejected it, stating “We execute on the law, period. When it comes to whether a law is unconstitutional, that is a non-factor for us.
Reject a Dangerous Movement
Please make every effort to attend to counter 2A supporters, many of whom will not even be Tiverton residents.
We need your help to show council members that Tiverton residents are committed to the rule of law and expect them to focus on issues concerning the efficient operation of the town, not wasting time with divisive, empty rhetoric.
We’ve made a page to help residents in RI cities and towns prepare for town council meetings with 2a resolution on their agenda, where you will find:
