    How Can Rhode Island Get Away With This?

    From Rhode Island permit application:

    "A pistol permit is a PRIVILEGE LEFT TO THE SOUND DISRECTION of the Attorney General."

    wtf? Isn't this a blatant "fu" to the 2nd amendment?

    Since when is my right to self-defense and carrying a pistol a PRIVILEGE to be handed down by one official?

    What does the law say? Don't like that wording? Cross it out.

    Until the people voting in Rhode Island rise up and elect legislators that honor, respect, and make law in compliance of the restrictions placed upon government by the Federal and State Constitutions this will be the state of that particular States laws!
    RIGHTS don't exist without RESPONSIBILITY!
    If one is not willing to stand for his rights, he doesn't have any Rights.
    I will strive to stand for the rights of ANY person, even those folks with whom I disagree!
    As said by SVG--- "I am not anti-COP, I am PRO-Citizen" and I'll add, PRO-Constitution.
    If the above makes me a RADICAL or EXTREME--- So be it!

    2nd amendment says.... "...The right of the people to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED!"

    Since the citizens of Rhode Island elected legislators that would pass legislation and make policies that are contrary to the federal and state constitutions and then those citizens sit back, do nothing and watch it happen.
    Of course any law that is contrary to a right has to be questioned in respect to its constitutionality.

    Agreed. But unless you involve the courts in the process, it will remain a rhetorical question.

    stay safe.

    My sincere apology - I did not see the second there. I have edited my post.

    However, Your double-normal-size post still remains. A PM might have served you better.

    And by the way, it is skidmark - no capital letter, thankyewverramush.

    stay safe.

    Slow down for a second.

    AG permits are May issue, but town permits under 11-47-11 are shall issue.

    There is a case pending right now in RI Supreme Court over town permits and another case that just started in federal court over a town permit denial that is now a 1983 lawsuit.

    The Mosby decision said that the May issue law can survive because their is a dual licensing system and the other (better license anyway) is shall-issue.

    They are right... permits is what they are talking about.

    Requiring a permit at all is a big FU to the constitution and your rights.

    Yep, RI is just like Tennessee with the permit to carry.

    It goes along with your annual permit to exist that you are supposed to file every year or risk jail. They are renewed every April 15th no matter where in the world you move to.

    Why should it surprise anyone one when the government stand is the same as the NRA stand.
