    See you all Tuesday
    Thank You.

    Legislative Alert!!

    On Thursday, February 28th, the House Finance Committee will hear testimony on the proposed additional 10% tax on all Firearms and Ammunition.

    This is an incredible attack by Gina Raimondo on our Law Abiding Citizens who want to exercise their Rights under the Second Amendment !

    This will result in Firearms and Ammunition sales tax being taxed at 17% and add an additional tax of 10% on all club related activities, from membership fees, to range fees, and any sales or fees collected by the club.

    We can still put a stop to this tax. Please bring two friends with you to the rally.

    The Rally Starts At 3:30, but if you can't get there until later, come as soon as you can and sign in opposition.

    Don't let Gina Raimondo weaponize the budget process against us!


    Lets All make a Statement Together ! #YellowandProud!


    Continue to contact the members of the Senate finance committee and the Senate President and tell them that you oppose this attack on the Rhode Island Firearms Community.

    Include your name and contact information in the email so they know that you're a Rhode Islander and you're watching.

    On Tuesday February 12 the Senate will hear testimony on an Additional 10% Tax on all Firearms and Ammunition.
    This is an incredible attack by Gina Raimondo on our Law Abiding Citizens who want to exercise their Right under the Second Amendment!
    This will result in Firearms and Ammunition sales being taxed at 17%.
    We need you at the State House to show your opposition to this attack on your Rights!!!!!

    The Progressives are not hiding their agenda, it is right out in the open.
    They want to ban all firearms and/or make it incredibly expensive to own, purchase and use your firearms.

    You MUST get involved.
    You get involved by going to the State House and standing alongside of your brothers and sisters in this fight.

    We ask you to get two or three friends and come to the State House any time after 3:30 pm. Please wear your Yellow Shirts, be respectful but be vigilant in your opposition!!!!

    On behalf of both myself and Michael O’Neil, along with the RI Revolver and Rifle Association, Federated RI Sportsmen’s Club and Rhode Island Firearm Owners League, we are proud to be at your service again this term.
    I hope to see you all there this Tuesday.

    **Legislative Update**

    Due to the pending weather, the State House hearings have been postponed, so there will be no rally tonight.


    I will update you when they are rescheduled.

    I would ask that you contact your Senator and Representative as well as the Speaker and Senate President and make sure that they know that we oppose the new taxes in the budget that unfairly target firearms owners. We have a little more time to drive the message home, and when the hearing is rescheduled, we will tell them face to face.

    Thank you to everyone who planned on attending tonight. To those who weren't, hopefully you'll realize how important this is and have a change of heart for the next time.
    Until Then,
    Stay Vigilant,
    Thank You

    Why can’t they hold these dam hearings for when people don’t have to skip work to attend?
    Are they just blatantly trying to keep those people from showing up? Very annoying. I’m not a RI resident but still would like to show support

    Mr. E,
    I am not sure what your work hours are but it started around 3pm and goes sometimes til very late at night, people come and go all evening. I am not a RI resident either but usually go to most of these hearings. The line waiting to get in was around 300 deep. Really great turnout yesterday! I heard around 3,000 +/- Patriots wearing yellow in support of the 2nd A.
    Only saw 3 enemies of the constitution(moms demand action, or whatever they call themselves, usually angry and uptight)in red shirts.
    Hope to see you at the next one!

    People were confused when the "no further study" announcement came out around midnight because people were still testifying. Guys who were leaving work at midnight still got to the State House.

    I to had to work and didn't get to the state house until after 8. I was there till I think 1:30 this morning testifying.

    They actually voted to hold the bills for further study at the start of the hearing and read off two bills following public testimony. I'm still going through the footage now and have about 6 or so hours of it.

    Given the in-person backlash they got LAST year, I'd think they want to make it as inconvenient as possible. The response from RI gunners was staggering.

    It was. A lot better than the response to Mike Yacino's last rally at the State House in Boston 15 or so years ago. Dozens of us. :(. It was disheartening.

    Even through all the e-blasts that went out, there were still lots of people whom had no idea what was going down. There are lots of people whom are members of gun clubs in RI who have the mindset that it doesn't effect them because they are "shot gun guys" or "bow and arrow guys" (or gals for that matter) however this year they are coming for you by trying to add taxes on top of the dues you pay. The amount of FUDDS is staggering, hopefully this year is a wake up call....

    So Shannon Watts joined bird woman at the State house for what? Doesn't she know that RI fluctuates between 1st and 2nd for states with the lowest gun deaths in the country? No need for what your selling lady.
