Owning a handgun in Rhode Island
I am considering buying a 1911 (or giving him my M1 Carbine) for a very mild anti friend in Rhode Island. He is a military/history buff so guns do interest him even though he is generally not pro gun rights.
I ask this because he is in New England and I have difficulty finding info on the legal steps, if any, to purchasing or receiving a handgun.
What does it take to purchase or receive a handgun in Rhode Island? Is there a license or permit-to-purchase? Is there any form of registration (other than Form 4473)? Are there restrictions on type, features, or capacity?
Additionally, what does it take to purchase or receive a rifle/shotgun in Rhode Island? Is there a license or permit-to-purchase? Is there any form of registration (other than Form 4473)? Are there restrictions on type, features, or capacity?
The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
