PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) - The Providence City council spent their first meeting of 2013 debating a gun control measure.

On Thursday night, the panel passed a resolution, that will ask the General Assembly to ban semi-automatic weapons statewide.

Council Majority Leader Seth Yurdin proposed the legislation, which comes in the wake of last month's tragic school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

"They're designed for the battle field," Yurdin said of the weapons.

Yurdin says changes to gun laws are long overdue, and fellow councilor David Salvatore agreed.

"I'm proud to support this resolution," Salvatore said.

Others, like Councilor Nicholas Narducci, said the focus should be on violent video games instead of guns.

Councilor Luis Aponte also opposed the resolution, saying it would only impact those who bought their guns legally, and registered them.

The resolution passed by an 8-6 vote.
Don't forget this now ....


A provision to the National Defense Authorization Act going before the Senate today would turn America into a “battlefield,” says supporter Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina.), and would allow the president of the United States the power to detain citizens domestically without trial, allowing the US military to act as law enforcement over their own civil

Also this coming from the city who's one time mayor buddy cianci was sending state police on extortion payment pick-ups from small businesses in Providence. This mayor was arrested for rackateering , served 10 years , released and then re-elected as mayor xD Think sopranos only the cops were in on it too .

I come from RI and grew up there in johnston just outside providence. That place is crooked as the day is long. I put money on the mob lobbying for this so extortion payments would be that much less dangerous for the soldiers.

I had a sub history teacher Ray petriacha and one day he didnt show up. We were like wheres Mr. Petriacha??? Well , it turns out he and his father Ray petriacha senoir ( head of the petriacha crime family ) had been indicted by grand jury on a litany of charges . And this guy was my middle school teacher.

I recall a time in the past when a judicious application of tar and or feathers was used to remind elected officials just where they are supposed to turn to when they committed unlawful acts...
