Rhode Island is a state run by anti-American liberal Democrats. Their House is composed of 62 democrats to 12 Republicans and 1 Independent. That House voted Monday to approve a bill that bans all convicted domestic abusers from owning or possessing a firearm. The bill now goes to the Senate where Democrats hold a 31 to 5 advantage over Republicans. Democratic Governor Gina Raimondo is expected to sign the measure if passed by the Senate.
Heading into the home-stretch, the Rhode Island House of Representatives voted Monday to require convicted domestic-abusers to surrender their guns for up to six years.
The House approved the legislation, after more than an hour of debate, on a 55-to-12 vote.
The opposition was led by the 11-member Republican bloc, with Rep. Sherry Roberts, R- West Greenwich, among those arguing: “We are going to make many of our constituents into criminals needlessly.”
“If you get some crazy person who really wants to kill someone and they don’t have a gun, guess what?″ she said. “They’re going to find another means to do that. They’ll hit them with a car if they have to and what are we going to do? Are we going to outlaw cars?″ …
Only 1 Democrat had the courage to vote against the gun control bill. Their intentions may be good, but not all domestic violence cases are what they seem on the surface. Sometimes they are nothing more than a strong argument or disagreement between a couple that gets blown out of proportion by one or both leading to charges and a wrongful conviction. The measure is not designed protect, but rather another step to strip people of their Second Amendment rights.
