Delaware: Contact Your Senator Immediately in Opposition to Gun Ban Legislation

On Tuesday, June 19, the Delaware Senate will consider legislation (Senate Bill 163) that would ban commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms in Delaware.   Though it was already defeated in committee, this anti-gun measure could be brought to the floor through a procedural move.  It is more important than ever that members immediately contact their state Senator and strongly urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 163.

Introduced as Senate Bill 163 and pushed by Governor Carney, this anti-gun legislation seeks to ban semi-automatic firearms commonly-owned for self-defense, target shooting and hunting.  Further, SB 163 would ban the sale, transfer, purchase, or possession of so-called “assault weapons.” As drafted, a very strict grandfather clause exists that would make all covered firearms useless, unless being transported and used at a shooting range or other narrowly defined exception. 

This legislation is an extreme gun ban and 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. 

Again, please contact your state Senator and strongly urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 163.
