GVROs are unfortunately becoming the norm.
Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo announced this week she would swiftly sign a pair of gun control bills sent to her by the state’s General Assembly.

“I applaud the General Assembly for standing with our kids, teachers, law enforcement and parents across the state by taking action to strengthen Rhode Island’s gun law,” Raimondo said in a statement. “Their action to ban bump stocks and pass a red flag law will make Rhode Island a safer state.”
