Mattiello Signals Willingness For New Gun Control Measures

Rhode Island House Speaker Nicholas Mattiello talked about gun control on the first day of the 2020 legislative session. Mattiello acknowledged during opening remarks to House colleagues on Tuesday that while he strongly supports Second Amendment rights, guns need to be removed from the possession of people with mental illness and non-law-abiding citizens. Mattiello specified that consideration will be given to enhancing state background check laws and banning 3D-printed guns, issues which are related to recent shootings in Westerly and Pawtucket.
