Delaware: Senate Ignores Procedure in Rush to Pass Markell Anti-Gun Legislation
Posted on April 12, 2013
As early as next week, the Delaware Senate could vote on Senate Bill 16 and House Bill 35. Both of these bills would discriminate against gun owners by requiring fees, paperwork and delays as obstacles to exercise a civil right. Senate Bill 16 would impose punitive measures against victims of crime by requiring a gun owner to report a lost or stolen gun within arbitrary time limits. House Bill 35 would criminalize private transfers of firearms between law-abiding citizens and could only be enforced with firearm registration. Hold your state legislators accountable: Demand protection for your rights and your Senator’s opposition to ineffective measures that target law-abiding constituents instead of criminals.
