Greetings Fellow Patriots,

                The 2022 Legislative session has begun. There are a lot of changes at the State house and we will need to work very hard this year to protect our Second Amendment Rights. With the Leftist’s new restrictions, the so-called “cleansing” on Facebook and Twitter, we will need to find better ways to get information directly to you the firearm owner and supporter. We are working on and exploring better more dependable information mediums.

There have been many calls and/or request for people to participate in “patriotic” rallies and demonstrations for the upcoming week. If you must go, please do NOT attend these demonstrations with any firearms. 

We must stay strong, vigilant but remain peaceful at all times. Our message immediately gets lost when violence erupts. From your Rhode Island Firearms Team, please stay safe. The Rhode Island Second Amendment Coalition, The Federated Sportsmen’s, Rhode Island Revolver and Rifle and the Rhode Island Firearm Owners league.

 
Proudly at your Service,

Frank Saccoccio
Michael O’Neil
