State of the State RI

Guest: David Strachman, Attorney, McIntyre Tate LLP. mtlesq.com
Host: Richard August Time: 30 minutes
Attorney Strachman has considerable experience litigating gun law cases in Rhode Island and uses these cases to illustrate the complexity and sometimes the inconsistencies in laws pertaining to gun carry permits and especially the interpretation of these laws. The RI Firearms Act has a preemptive clause which gives the general assembly sole regulation. Hence, municipalities cannot promulgate laws relating to firearms. This is the source of much of the confusion and misapplication and misadministration of Rhode Island guns laws. Strachman guides us through this quagmire to help us better understand.
