House Passes Laws On Guns, Revenge Porn, DACA Drivers

A number of bills that passed through committee earlier this week are now clearing through the full Rhode Island House of Representatives. The House passed legislation banning bump stocks and allowing authorities to disarm someone who displays warning signs of possible violent behavior, or red flags as the legislation is worded. The House also passed a law making it a crime to post pornographic images of people without their permission, known as revenge porn. Another bill passed allowing Rhode Islanders enrolled in the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to get driver's licenses, regardless of what happens with DACA in the future.
