Today, the Senate Judicial and Community Affairs Committee voted 3-2 to defeat radical gun ban measure, Senate Bill 163. Introduced as Senate Bill 163 and pushed by Governor Carney, this anti-gun legislation sought to ban semi-automatic firearms commonly-owned for self-defense, target shooting and hunting. While this is an important step in the ultimate defeat of SB 163, this legislation will remain alive in the legislature until the end of session on June 30. NRA members must stay vigilant in their opposition to gun control this session.
Thank you to NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters who contacted committee members in opposition to this anti-gun legislation. Special thanks to those committee members who voted NO on Senate Bill 163, Senator Bruce Ennis, Senator Gregory Lavelle, and Senator Dave Lawson. Please contact those Senators and thank them for supporting your Second Amendment rights by opposing SB 163.
Senator Gregory Lavelle (R-4)
Senator Bruce Ennis (D-14)
