This week, NRA-ILA learned of a potential bill being circulated in the Delaware General Assembly that would prohibit the manufacture, sale, transfer or possession of a firearm, firearm component or accessory including ammunition that is “undetectable” by standard metal detectors. While its language is not currently available, reports indicate that this legislation is being circulated by anti-gun state Senator Harris McDowell (D- Wilmington) as Senate Bill 137. SB 137 would go far beyond existing federal law banning undetectable firearms, and because of flaws in the definitions used in this bill, has the potential to ban possession of virtually ALL magazines and ALL modern cartridge ammunition. This legislation is yet another example of anti-gun legislators attempting to regulate technology they do not understand, and address a problem which doesn’t exist.
SB 137 could be introduced as early as TODAY. It is important that you contact your state Senator and state Representative TODAY and preemptively oppose this attack on your rights by respectfully asking them to OPPOSE SB 137. Links to contact information for state legislators are provided below:
