Domestic abusers are being prevented from owning guns in Rhode Island. Governor Gina Raimondo signed legislation on Monday that bans firearm possession by anyone who is named in a domestic order of protection issued by a court, after the General Assembly recently passed the bill. Raimondo called the signing the end of a hard-fought battle and says the law will save lives. State Representative Teresa Tanzi and State Senator Harold Metts were the bill's lead sponsors in the assembly.
