In most cases it is more beneficial for you to apply to your city or town, in that case, please go to your local Police Department and pick up an application, or check online, they should have their own.....check to see....do not "assume" that they use the AG's application.
Keep in mind that when applying thru your local city or town, the showing of "need" has changed to "proper reason" based on The RI Supreme Court Decision Court Case Gadomski v. Tavares. According to the case......
Footnote On Page 8 of the decision reads as follows.....
"Additionally, it should be noted that in Mosby v. Devine, 851 A. 2d 1031, 1047 (R.I. 2004), after observing that the petitioner held "several gun licenses from other states" and was "[a]n avid gun collector." we stated that the petitioner "ha[d] a proper reason for carrying a pistol or revolver." Therefore, it appears that Gadomski, who also has gun licenses from other states and is a licensed gun collector, may have proffered at least one proper reason under the statute. "
