An Intelligent Combination of Gun Safety Reforms
In addition to the large majority of support from Rhode Islanders, law enforcement and health and safety experts recommend multiple layers of firearms safety regulations as the most effective way to protect the public from gun violence.
The following three bills, based on academic research and evidence-based reports, will go a long way toward the goal of reducing the threat of gun violence in Rhode Island:
The Safe Schools Act of 2019 – barring possession of firearms within 300 feet of school grounds; exceptions are made for peace officers, retired law enforcement officers, persons providing school security, firearms on private property and unloaded firearms in containers or locked car racks.
The Rhode Island Large Capacity Feeding Device Ban Act of 2019 - regulating the sale and possession of devices capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition.
The Rhode Island Assault Weapons Ban Act of 2019 - barring the sale and possession of military-style assault weapons with more than 10 round capacity; exceptions apply for law enforcement and military personnel.
We respectfully request that this legislation be brought to the floor of both the R.I. House and Senate for a vote, to show our citizens as well as our police officers that we are doing all we can to keep our communities safe through common-sense gun regulation.
