On June 22, the House Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee voted to table Senate Bill 25. Despite this action, anti-gun committee members have now moved the bill to the floor of the state House, where it is scheduled to be considered later TODAY.
Senate Bill 25, sponsored by state Senator Robert Marshall (D-3), seeks 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 it is critical that you contact your state Representative IMMEDIATELY and urge him or her to oppose Senate Bill 25 on the House floor – or any other anti-gun bills that may be considered - as the legislative session concludes this week. We cannot allow this last minute push to allow reckless anti-gun bills to sneak through as session ends.
