General Assembly Firearms Bills
Fellow Defenders of the 2nd Amendment and Liberty:
As you are aware, the General Assembly has been in session with rumors abound there might be some bad gun bills coming.
Well, they are here!
Please go to the GA website and see for yourselves these new crop of Firearms Bills .
Here is a heads up on some of the more egregious and outrageous bills I saw: (see PDF attached)
House Bill no. 7582 sponsor Diaz, Slater, Almeida, Williams, Ferri, "children under 18 restricted from possession and use of firearms." http://webserver.rilin.state.ri.us/BillText14/HouseText14/H7582.htm
House Bill no. 7583 sponsor: Almeida, "a list of assault weapons to ban." http://webserver.rilin.state.ri.us/BillText14/HouseText14/H7583.htm
House Bill no. 7584 sponsor: Almeida, "assault weapons ban." http://webserver.rilin.state.ri.us/BillText14/HouseText14/H7584.htm
House Bill no. 7585 sponsor: Almeida, "10 round magazine restriction." http://webserver.rilin.state.ri.us/BillText14/HouseText14/H7585.htm
House Bill no. 7587 sponsors: Finn, Blazejewski, Almeida, Handy, Ajello, "Changing 11-47-11 from 'shall' issue to 'may' issue." http://webserver.rilin.state.ri.us/BillText14/HouseText14/H7587.htm
Ladies and gentlemen, here we go again! Please call, email contact your reps and senators to say no to these outrageous bills that infringe on our civil-liberties for no other reason than the fact these representatives have contempt for our right to keep and bear arms. None of us deserve to be discriminated against for an irrational fear these people have for a firearm class or magazine capacity that has utterly nothing to do with putting criminals behind bars or solving the criminal behavioral problems that we may have in our state. These people are rationalizing the obliteration of our Constitution on a lie.
As always, be polite with your representative and senator for he or she may very well be a supporter. However, if you find them sponsoring any of these bad bills (or others I may have missed), then you are free to speak your mind because they would deserve it!
