Kicking off the rally with a poem was Jaychele Schenck, youth organizer and leader with Young Voices.
15 of the 20 Most Deadly Mass Shootings in the Past Decade* Have Included the Use of Large Capacity Magazines.
The few seconds it takes to change an ammunition magazine are precious – 10 round magazines make shooters reload more frequently, which give victims a chance to flee or fight back. Rhode Island must pass H7264/S2130 as a public health reform this year!

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.

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.”
