The Providence city council voted to approve a resolution calling on the state to enable legislation to allow the city to ban semi-automatic firearms on Thursday evening.

The resolution is sponsored by Council Majority Leader Seth Yurdin and co-sponsored by 5 other members of the council. The resolution encourages the General Assembly to reintroduce legislation that would allow cities and towns the ability to regulate the sale of firearms.
