In an overwhelming majority, the Rhode Island Senate passed two bills aimed at curbing gun violence in Rhode Island.
One bill would allow for the court-ordered seizure of firearms from individuals deemed dangerous, also known as a red flag policy. The other bans modifications to guns, allowing them to shoot off bullets at a higher rate.
Jennifer Boylan regularly advocates for gun control at the Statehouse as a volunteer with Moms Demand Action. She hopes the General Assembly will move forward on other gun control measures.
