On Wednesday, June 6, the Delaware Senate Judicial and Community Affairs Committee will be considering a radical gun ban measure similar to what neighboring gun owners in Maryland fought heavily against in 2013. Introduced as Senate Bill 163 and being pushed by Governor Carney, this anti-gun legislation would ban semi-automatic firearms commonly-owned for self-defense, target shooting and hunting. Please contact members of the Senate Judicial and Community Affairs Committee immediately and strongly urge them to oppose Senate Bill 163 and any attempt to ban firearms in the First State.
As drafted, this legislation would do nothing to stop crime and would only prevent law-abiding gun owners from being able to defend themselves using the most effective means available. Criminals, by definition, do not follow the law and will not follow this one if passed. It is very important that you contact your legislators in opposition to Senate Bill 163 immediately.
Again, please contact members of the Senate Judicial and Community Affairs Committee immediately and strongly urge them to oppose Senate Bill 163, which would ban firearms or impose further gun control in Delaware.
Senate Judicial and Community Affairs Committee:
Sen. Margaret Rose Henry (Chair)
Sen. Bruce Ennis
