Maybe.

The waiting period is codified in RIGL 11-47-35...

RIGL 11-47-35 said:
(a)(1) No person shall deliver a pistol or revolver to a purchaser until seven (7) days shall have elapsed from twelve o'clock (12:00) noon of the day following the day of application for the purchase...

http://webserver.rilin.state.ri.us/Statutes/title11/11-47/11-47-35.HTM

...and RIGL 11-47-35.1 provides an exemption for town issued permits only...

RIGL 11-47-35.1 said:
The provisions of § 11-47-35 shall not apply to full-time members of the state police, full-time members of the state marshal's office, full-time members of city or town police departments, or state marshals or correctional officers or persons licensed under § 11-47-11.

If you have an AG issued permit, the waiting period is mandatory.

Only if his ri ccw is town issued. 11-47-18 i believe is the ag permit which does not exclude the 7 day waiting period.



The correct answer is you have to wait the 7 days UNLESS you have the Chief of Police concealed carry permit. If you have the AG concealed carry permit you still have to wait the 7 days.

Gone to Carolina in my mind...
7 day wait is applicable to first handgun? Or all purchases? If you already have at least one gun, what purpose does waiting seven days accomplish? I assume it is to prevent crimes of passion which, if you already have a gun, you'd commit with your existing firearm.

And this wait is only for handguns? If you buy a rifle or shotgun there's no waiting period?

Yes, you are both correct. Mea Culpa.

7 days regardless of whether or not you already own any firearms. This includes all firearms, handguns and long guns and shotguns.

It is supposed to be a "cool down" period like you stated and also as you stated, why would I go buy another gun to kill someone if I already owned one? It's a stupid "feel good" law.
