Today, the House Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee voted to table Senate Bill 25. Thanks to your vocal opposition to this bill, SB 25 has been essentially defeated for this session.
Senate Bill 25, sponsored by state Senator Robert Marshall (D-3), sought to create the Community Firearm Recovery Program, a pilot program that would use state appropriated funds for local municipal police, the New Castle County Police and the Delaware State Police, to purchase surrendered firearms. Senate Bill 25 lacks fiscal accountability and opens the door to potential misappropriation of funds, while in no way deterring crime.
At this time no additional action is needed on your part. However, please continue to check your e-mail and www.NRAILA.org for future updates in Delaware.
