Tomorrow, the Delaware House Administration Committee is scheduled to consider anti-gun legislation, House Bill 300. Please contact your state Representative and urge them to OPPOSE HB 300 when it comes up for a vote.
House Bill 300, sponsored by state representative Valerie Longhurst, would make it a crime to knowingly possess a firearm accessory or any other device, part or combination of parts that is designed or functions to accelerate the rate of fire of a semi-automatic firearm. The broad and overreaching provisions in HB 300 could potentially criminalize firearm modifications such as competition triggers, muzzle brakes, and ergonomic changes that are commonly done by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability.
Further, HB 300 contains no grandfather clause or period of time to surrender the prohibited items, potentially creating felons out of a majority of law-abiding gun owners.
Again, please contact your state Representative and urge them to OPPOSE HB 300 when it comes up for a vote.
