The Rhode Island 2nd Amendment Coalition The latest editions of NRA Sports Magazine features a welcome letter from our new official state association in Rhode Island.

Within a few months we were able to unite a majority of the Rhode Island sportsman clubs and other pro Second Amendment organizations.
