PROVIDENCE, RI– Governor Gina M. Raimondo released the following statement today
applauding the General Assembly for introducing red flag legislation to prevent
gun violence and gun suicides:
“The tragedy in Parkland has renewed the urgency once again for states to take action
to prevent gun violence. On Monday, I will sign an Executive Order establishing
a statewide red flag policy that will take effect immediately, but we still need
to pass legislation so these protections are in place permanently. I applaud the
legislature for introducing strong red flag legislation. I urge the General Assembly
to take swift action to pass it.”
