Rhode Island District Court judges have submitted the names of 234 residents who have been deemed a danger to either themselves or others to the FBI's National Instant Criminal Background Check System as of Nov. 20.
This is the first year that the identities of those considered mentally incompetent are being sent to the national background-check system that screens residents applying to purchase firearms.
“If we can eliminate that one element, we can contribute to preventing people who should not have a firearm in their possession from actually acquiring one,” explained Senior Deputy Minority Leader Mike Chippendale, who co-sponsored the bill and served on the joint task force.
The names sent to the database are limited to those a judge has involuntarily committed, related to violence or criminal behavior. There is also a relief board for appeals.
