Rhode Island: Gun Shops Deemed Essential and Will Remain Open

Gun Rights

Governor Gina Raimondo’s order to ban operation of all non-essential businesses will not apply to Ocean State gun shops.  They have rightfully been designated as essential businesses, ensuring that citizens can continue to provide for their own security and safety during this national health crisis. 

Also, late last week, Attorney General Peter Neronha stipulated that gun ranges can remain open observing social distancing practices.  These are important victories for families who must increasingly rely on themselves for their own protection.

However, it’s important to note that under Executive Order 20-07, the seven-day waiting period can be extended up to 30 days.

The Rhode Island Department of Business Regulation lists which businesses can remain open and those which must close their doors.  If members have questions, they can visit www.dbr.ri.gov.
