The substitute bill for Senate Bill 83 has left its House committee and now will be considered by the full Delaware House of Representatives. SB 83, as previously reported, was an anti-gun bill designed to bypass due process to deprive gun owners of their rights in domestic abuse proceedings. Your NRA-ILA was able to amend the bill to remove the most egregious of the due process violations, and include an alternative to gun owners being forced to relinquish their property to law enforcement agencies. The substitute bill, as passed, removes ex parte orders from those Court orders which are nationally prohibitive for firearms rights, guaranteeing that Delaware residents will not become prohibited persons without due process of law. SB 83 could be considered by the full Delaware House of Representatives as early as tomorrow.
Also, Senate Bill 68, previously reported here, has also left its House committee and will now be considered by the full Delaware House of Representatives. This legislation is intended to protect children during their online activities by prohibiting the marketing or advertising of services or products deemed “harmful to children,” on websites that are considered “directed to children.” In the form the House of Representatives received SB 68, firearms and firearm training courses were considered products deemed “harmful to children.” SB 68 could be considered by the full Delaware House of Representatives as early as tomorrow. It is important that you contact your state Representative and strongly, but politely, urge him or her to vote to adopt the NRA-supported amendment to Senate Bill 68 to remove firearms and ammunition from the provisions of this bill.
