Rhode Island: Mandatory Storage Bill Signed As Legislature Adjourns

Pinterest WhatsApp

Late last week, Rhode Island lawmakers adjourned for the year, but not before anti-gun Gov. Dan McKee inked his signature to the main piece of gun control to pass the Legislature in 2024. H.7373A/S.2022aa, forces gun owners to store their firearms under lock and key, but home invaders will get to play by a different set of rules. The Burglar Protection Act is dangerous because when seconds matter, anti-gun lawmakers want you to fumble around in the dark for keys to the safe while armed intruders breezily make their way to the top of your staircase.

While one bill did pass and was signed into law, many others failed to advance, including H.7217, banning semi-automatic rifles. Thank you to all NRA members who contacted their legislators during the session and attended Statehouse hearings. It is almost certain that similar legislation will be introduced during the 2025 legislative session, and Ocean State gun owners should be prepared to fight again.

The 2024 election is just around the corner, and it provides an opportunity to elect pro-gun lawmakers to help protect your rights in the Ocean State. Plan to go to the polls and make your voice heard in November, and please remember to take friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers with you! Continue to follow NRA-ILA and your email inbox for the latest news and updates concerning your Second Amendment rights.
