Via Go Local Prov: Senate Approves Large Magazine Ban on Floor – Bypassing Own Committee

The bill was part of a larger package of gun infringement laws, most in direct contradiction to the constitution:

Article I, § 22 of the Constitution of the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations

The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

Last time I quoted from Google Search referencing Giffards. I love that the RI RKBA is so short and clear.

The Democrats had a large slate of bills infringing on the RKBA. It got side tracked into committee where it stalled in a 50/50 split.

Because they weren’t winning via normal means, the Dem’s pulled this one bill out of committee to the floor where they voted on it and passed it.

I don’t directly follow RI politics but I believe this means the bill is on the way to the governors office for signature now. This is a ban on standard capacity magazines.

One thought on “Rhode Island Democrats bend the rules to pass Magazine Ban”
  1. The NY SAFE Act was basically passed the same way after Sandy Hook. The sudden “emergency” allowed the legislature to bypass all regular procedures and pass the bill without any discussion whatsoever.

    Never let a crisis go to waste.
