Most every proposed law in RI gets tabled and the system for proposing new laws in the RI legislature is stupid (each legislator gets 2-3 and they propose anything just to show activity- which is why most of them get killed) but here is the current list:

2293 is utterly moronic, as if RI has a problem with rogue hunters taking pot shots in the streets of Providence and the domestic violence ones all seem equally retarded- federal law already prohibits people convicted of domestic violence from purchasing firearms, but some of the others look pretty good! I like the automatic renewal bill quite a lot and tax bill is not bad either.

I expect we'll probably see another dozen before the submission period for new legislation ends (which should be soon).
