The purpose of the meeting is consideration and action on the 2023 Legislative Agenda of the Burrillville

Town Council

2. Adjournment

 

****************************************************************

 As the 2023 legislative session begins, I would like to thank everyone who worked hard last legislative session to have their voices heard.

We didn't get the results that we had hoped for, but it's not over. There are pending court cases that will be heard and hopefully we can undo the unconstitutional assault on our rights.

Until then, I ask everyone to remain vigilant and and alert, and I will notify you when there are any new developments..

 

We all know that our activist governor is bought and paid for by the anti-gun lobbyists, so, it should be no surprise that he is planning a propaganda based press conference tomorrow at the State House to announce his latest assault on our freedoms.

I fully expect this to include an attempt to ban all semiautomatic firearms. 

The press conference will happen Tomorrow, January 31st at 11:30 am... A time when most everyone will be at work, including the paid lobbyists that he will be surrounded by when he makes this announcement, as if it were his own, and not the bidding of New York billionaire Michael Bloomberg. 

If your available, and would like to attend, please wear your yellow.

If not, keep in mind that this is simply the opening volley in what is going to be an egregious assault on the Constitution and the firearm community, which, as always, will do nothing to punish criminals..  the goal is obviously to make all of us criminals while the real threats to society run free.

Get angry, get fed up, but get ready.

It's going to be a busy session.

Thank You

Paul

**** Legislative Alert****

 

Several pieces of anti-gun legislation, including a magazine ban, have been posted for consideration (floor vote) for this Thursday..

We need a strong showing at the State House if we're going to stop them

Wear your yellow, go to the State House 

 

Some 2A groups are reporting that votes may happen early to avoid the crowd.

It is suggested to swarm the Statehouse at 1:30 on Thursday.

The original rally time was Thursday 3 to 7 pm.

Continue to contact everyone in the legislature, including the leadership.

 

This is it. 

 

Thank You

Paul

Political Action. 

 

 *******************************************************************************************************************************

***Legislative Alert***

 

As the end of the legislative session comes to a close, it's more important than ever to make our presence known.

 

Members of the Firearms Community are asked to go the the State House whenever they can. The hope is that we can maintain a strong presence from 3-7 pm, Tuesday's Wednesday's, and Thursday's.

I know that this isn't possible for most of us, but those who can't, are asked to do so.

 

Members of the judiciary have specifically asked for our presence on Thursday, June 9th while during the rise of the house and senate.

 

It is important to be seen, and not forgotten.

Hopefully we can fill the galleries and have an obvious presence in the hall.

 

Also, please keep the pressure on by contacting the legislature, Senate President, and House Speaker.

 

It only takes a minute, and could make the difference.

 

Thank You All

Paul

You must sign in with her to recieve the work hours.

This is it, Thursday, June 2nd, 3-7 pm.

Rally for your rights at the Rhode Island State House.

We need as many people as possible to attend.

This will probably be your last chance.

All anti gun bills are being pushed through.

The last chance we have to stop them is Thursday.

Get there and be recognized.

 

Continue to call the House Speaker, Senate President, and all members of the house and senate.

This is our last chance.

 

Thank You

**** Urgent Legislative Alert****

 

Forwarded message from the Rhode Island Firearms Owners League.

 

 

All Gun Bills Slated For Passage!

 

Once again progressives are trying to bully leadership into ramming through their ENTIRE anti-gun agenda. That’s right, ALL THE BILLS! 

 

Progressives have threatened to vote the state budget down if leadership does not move every bill for a floor vote. It’s time to email AND call your local senators and reps.

 

Tell legislators they’re expected to support real school safety reforms rather than using a tragedy as cover for stripping our rights. Tell them to take a stand on the progressives’ budget stunt. Any legislator who votes for the budget is facilitating the passage of these gun bills. Vote NO on the bills and NO on the budget! 

 

Let them know you oppose:

 

• A ban on so-called assault weapons

• Restrictions on magazines holding more than 10 rounds. 

• Raising the age of all firearms purchases to 21 years of age

• Mandatory storage of firearms

• Banning of long arms in public

• Voting on a budget that facilitates the passage of gun bills

 

(Cut and paste these bullet points into your email.)

 

Use the tool below to find your legislators and text of the bills. More details soon.

*** Legislative Alert ***

 

As you all know, a psychopath went on a rampage yesterday in Texas.

 

Make no mistake about it. You, and I are being blamed for this.

 

As you read this, there is a strong push on Smith Hill to punish all of us for the actions of 

another.

 

Our inept, feckless poor excuse for a governor, as of this morning, has already called for draconian restrictions to be levied against us.

 

There is no denying that what happened in Texas was a tragedy, and a disgusting act of cowardice.

The question is, are you going to allow the radical left to blame it on you?

 

If you're silent, the answer is yes.

 

The legislation session is coming to a close in the next few weeks.

Now is not the time to remain silent.

 

Contact every member of the general assembly, by whatever means possible.

Make it abundantly clear that you will not allow them to exploit this tragedy in order to push their personal political agenda.

 

Do not let up.

Remain vigilant, remain resolved, and remain a free member of society.

 

The laws they are looking to pass will make you a felon overnight.

 

Are you ready for that?

 

I'm not, and I urge everyone one of you to make sure that the elected officials know that

 

Don't Delay.

There's no time to waste.

 

Thank You

 Hearings Scheduled.

 ** Legislative Alert ***

 

We're in a dangerous time right now when it comes to this legislative session.

 

All bills heard at our last two hearings have been held for further study. We all know that this doesn't mean that we won.

 

We didn't have a very strong presence at the State House this year, so it's more important than ever before that we keep the pressure on the legislature in order to be heard.

 

There's a bill, H7725, scheduled for a hearing tomorrow, 4-12-22, that would once expand the municipalities ability to dictate local ordinances. The death by 1000 paper cuts method is is exactly how they chip away at our rights a little bit at a time.

 

I urge everyone to make their voices heard. Call, and contact your representative and senator whatever way you can. Make sure that they know how you feel.

Silence is Consent when dealing with these issues.

 

It only takes a few minutes. Let them know. Be polite, but firm in your resolve.

 

Thank You All for your efforts

****************************************************************

All hands on deck folks.!

 

Looks like anti-gun bills are riding a wave of shenanigans. Two hearings in two days. House 1pm this Wednesday and 3pm Thursday for the Senate. The senate will be hearing all bills while the house judiciary gymnastics have propelled the AWB and Mag confiscation bills as close as they've ever been to passing. All other bills will be heard on the house Wednesday. 

 

We need folks there BOTH days. Yes it sucks but the alternative is Rhode Island become the most regulated state in the country. Neither day is more important than the other. 

 

Event details below. Head to rifol.org and use the green button to find your local senator and rep. Call AND email them today!

 

Share the event and tag folks from your shops and clubs.

 

 Notice of Hearings. Senate And House

Wednesday, March 30, and Thursday, March 31.

 Copies of both email blasts below

 I urge everyone to read what's scheduled for next Thursday, and contact your Senator, as well as the Senate Judiciary Committee.

 Some of these bills are very good, but unfortunately, many are very bad and will turn the majority of gun owners in Rhode Island into Felons overnight. 

 If you haven't already, it's time to step up the pressure and make your voices heard.

 These are the Senate Bills. Remember, we're facing corresponding Bills in the House when those hearings are scheduled... which will happen soon, so be sure that your representative knows how you feel also.

 Call, Email, contact on social media.. do whatever you need to do to be heard. Oral and Written Testimony the night of the hearing is very effective. When we come together as one voice, the voice of the firearms community, we send a clear message. It's also the only way that we can stop bad legislation from being passed.

We've done it before, and Together, We CAN do it again.
