    Rhode Island: Providence Passes Resolution Banning Semi-Automatic Guns

    On Thursday night, the Providence City Council passed a resolution banning all semi-automatic firearms in the city. This resolution passed with 8 votes, 6 opposed and 1 abstention. This sweeping gun ban proclamation is an all-out assault on the Second Amendment rights of Rhode Islanders.

    It is a good thing RI has Preemption. What a bunch of knee-jerk reactionaries.

    I wonder if it would have passed if they knew it actually would have power? How many politicians are just running around out there just ahead of the uninformed mob that is their power base? It isn't just the hardcore anti-gun politicians we have to worry about. It is also those with sentiments leaning toward our side but they are "riding the tiger" and don't want to get off for fear of getting bit.

    Wonder how much egg will be on their faces when it is overturned in court and found to be unconstitutional. These folks just don't get it or they just don't read the national news like Washington D.C.'s trip down this road.

    So they wasted time by passing a nonbinding resolution that would have accomplished nothing to stop gun crimes even if it had been a binding law.
