Guest: Jerry Belair, President, RI Coalition Against Gun Violence, ricagv.org
Host: Richard August
RI Coalition Against Gun Violence president Jerry Belair is a proponent of gun control legislation especially as these laws relate to cases of domestic violence; carrying concealed guns on school grounds; and large capacity ammunition magazines. This discussion includes related concerns regarding proposed exemptions to existing and proposed laws, who should be allowed to carry a concealed gun and the level of training for those who have the right to carry. Although 95% of school committee members polled are against permitting guns on school property, some believe that it might serves as a determent to school guns violence. A dilemma indeed.
