On June 3, 2015, at noon, the Delaware Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hear Senate Bill 83. As previously reported, SB 83 would violate the due process of Delaware citizens. SB 83 would exceed current Delaware and federal law, and would allow abuse orders, which can be issued ex parte, to be issued without evidence that a person committed any actual act of harm against a person, or that the person has even been charged with any criminal act. After the order has been processed a person would be disqualified from owning any firearms or ammunition. It is of the utmost importance that you contact your state Senator to respectfully and politely urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 83.
Also, it is critical that you contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and urge them to OPPOSE this legislation that not only violates due process but also disrespects your Second Amendment rights. Contact information for committee members is provided below.
