All statements involving Linda Finn
"By a two-to-one margin, Rhode Islanders want to ban assault weapons and we have a very small percentage of gun owners in this state, less than 13 percent."
Right now, if Rhode Island police come across a young person with a gun, "they really don't legally have the right to take it away from them."
"Rhode Island could tell you who has a camper, but we couldn't figure out who has a gun."
