Delaware: House Administration Committee to Consider Bill to Limit Magazine Capacity Tomorrow

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

House Bill 58 will be heard in the House Administration Committee tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. in the House Chamber of Legislative Hall in Dover. If passed by this committee, HB 58 could be voted on by the entire House as early as this Thursday.  Sponsored by state Representative John Mitchell Jr. (D-13), HB 58 would prohibit the manufacture, sale, purchase, transfer or delivery of magazines with the capacity to accept more than ten rounds of ammunition.  Please contact members of the House Administration Committee TODAY and your own state Representative, and respectfully urge them to oppose House Bill 58.

Millions of rifles and tens of millions of handguns designed for self-defense and target shooting by law-abiding citizens use magazines that hold more than ten rounds.  If you need a gun for self-defense, should the government dictate how many rounds of ammunition you are allowed to use while defending yourself or another?  The answer is NO!  This type of proposed law has been proven ineffective at reducing violent crime, only affects responsible gun owners and must be stopped.  To get the facts on magazine capacity limits, click here
