ALERT! Stop Gun Control in Rhode Island

Well fellow Rhode Islanders, it’s time to fire up the phone calls and the e-mails. Tomorrow is a big day. Tuesday is the same. The bills outlined below are scheduled for consideration on Monday in the House and Tuesday in the Senate Judiciary committees. It is urgent that you write your representatives and senators and tell them that you oppose any new gun control legislation. Start writing now!

Thanks
