Rhode Island Alert: Two gun bills before committee

a gun show table

Two gun bills, thought to be dead this session, were placed back on the Senate Judiciary Committee agenda for this week. The first would ban 3-D plastic guns. These are the ones that someday 3-D printers could make and they’d be undetectable with metal detectors.  The second would help authorities learn more about gun sales from gun dealers.

The Bill

👍 S.84 would outlaw plastic undetectable guns.

👍 S.595 would require gun dealers send a monthly report to the state police summarizing gun sales.
