    It's kind of funny how when your in school and break the rules you get suspended........this story is kind of disheartening.

    I just got my MA LTC in under 60 days(closer to 30) in Attleboro. Looking to get RI permit next. Sounds like the town or city route is the way to go. Any towns better to work with than others?

    Are you an RI resident? If not I think AG is the only way to go.

    My mistake. Looking at the statute, it appears that as an RI resident over 21, if I have a non-res permit from another state I can apply in any town? Wondering as my town is not very friendly on permits - at least based on the app I got.

    Non-residents with a concealed carry license may apply to any town for a RI non-resident permit (by statute). That's not to say all (or even most) towns welcome non-resident applications, but the law states that they must accept them.

    Emphasis mine...

    Right, but as a resident of City P in RI with an MA non-resident permit, I have a;

    "bona fide residence within the United States and a license or permit to carry a pistol or revolver concealed upon his or her person issued by the authorities of any other state or subdivision of the United States".

    So while the intent may not be to let folks from City P in RI apply for a permit from City W, a plain reading of the statue would seem to allow it in this circumstance, no? After all, the second qualifying test states "or of any person ...". If the intent was to exclude RI residents, it is not supported by the broad language used.

    I agree with your interpretation. I don't know anyone who's tried it, and you would certainly get pushback from just about any chief you tried. But I think legally you are right.

    I know a guy who lives in a RI town where the licensing authorities does not follow the law who had a non-resident permit in another state who was able to get a RI permit from a another town. I won't say what town he applied in since I don't agree with this approach and we should apply in the town you live in if you live in RI otherwise we will not make any progress.

    I love it.....you've been waiting for years to get this case resolved..... A constitutional and civil rights issue, but Tom Brady takes a couple pounds of air out of a football, and he gets a hearing right away.

    So much for swift justice for the other 99%

    After the Gadomski decision in the Rhode Island Sct. this case was amended to include the outcome of Gadomski. That was back in June.

    Subscribing to this thread. Is OP stills reaching for the settlement or for a court decision? (Everyone should be rooting for a court decision)

    A court decision which would be most favorable wrt to the 2A would be badass.

    Have you tried, you know, communicating with him/her? I'm sure it's not the case, but it almost seems like you don't really care. Town offers to settle and you don't talk to your lawyer for 3 1/2 months?

    FWIW, my family had a probate lawyer who would not return phone calls email, or even registered letters. Finally, we reported him to the Rhode Island Bar Association, and they woke his ass up and got things done!
