Allan Fung Silent on How He Would Vote to Protect Rhode Island from Gun Violence

Fung’s silence makes clear he would have voted “no” to make Rhode Island kids safer

In response to the onslaught of mass shootings across the nation, House Democrats took action and voted to pass the Protecting Our Kids Act. Allan Fung continues to hide from Rhode Island voters on how he would have voted a bill to:

  • Raise the age to purchase a semi-automatic weapon from 18 to 21;

  • Ban the sale of large capacity magazines;

  • Crack down gun trafficking and straw purchases;

  • Outlaw bump stocks, which effectively turn semiautomatic weapons into machine guns – what was used in the 2017 Las Vegas massacre;

  • Outlaw ghost guns, which lack traceable serial numbers and have increasingly been used in violent crimes;

  • And promote the safe storage of firearms through precautionary measures.

Allan Fung’s record shows he will side with the gun lobby against common-sense measures to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people – like when he opposed a 2018 red flag law. Fung has welcomed the NRA’s support and was a leader in taking money from the gun lobby in Rhode Island. Last week, he even said he opposed banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines in Rhode Island.

Fung can’t be trusted to choose public safety over the gun lobby.

DCCC Spokesperson James Singer: 
“Allan Fung would rather cower to the gun lobby and extremism than protect our children and communities from senseless acts of gun violence.”
