Rhode Island does not have specific laws regulating gun shows. The state imposes background checks for private purchases of firearms, however, and has a seven-day waiting period for all firearm sales to non-law enforcement personnel. See the sections entitled Universal Background Checks in Rhode Island and Waiting Periods in Rhode Island.
