RI town to vote on recalls over gun permit changes

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Residents in the small Rhode Island town of Exeter are voting on whether to recall four town council members who proposed changing the way gun permits are issued.

Saturday’s recall election was sought by gun rights supporters who say the council ignored their objections to a failed proposal that would have allowed the attorney general to oversee Exeter’s concealed weapons permits. The town of 6,000 has no police department so permits are now handled by the town clerk.

The council members say gun rights supporters are trying to make them an example for other officeholders considering changes to gun laws.

If the council members are recalled they will be replaced by losing candidates from the last election.

Polls opened at 7 a.m. and will close at 8 p.m.
