Lawmakers Consider New Gun Laws

Rhode Island lawmakers are proposing new gun restrictions in the wake of the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida. Democratic state Sen. Joshua Miller and Rep. Jason Knight introduced legislation Tuesday banning weapons like the one used in the Feb. 14 shooting that killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Democratic Reps. Teresa Tanzi and Kenneth Marshall also filed separate bills Tuesday raising the legal age to purchase firearms from 18 to 21 in the state.
