Today, the House could hear Senate Bill 6, to ban most ammunition magazines in common use. You may view the agenda here. Please click the button below to ask your state representative to OPPOSE SB 6.
Senate Bill 6, the so-called “Delaware Large Capacity Magazine Prohibition Act,” bans possessing magazines with a capacity greater than seventeen rounds of ammunition, including those that may “readily be converted” over that capacity and those with a “removable floor plate or end plate, if the device can readily be extended to accept more than 17 rounds of ammunition.” This vague and broad definition could be interpreted to ban the magazines for most modern handguns and rifles in common use. Such arbitrary limits are not grounded in public safety and, instead, restrict law-abiding citizens who use these magazines for various purposes, such as self-defense and competition.
In addition, the House is considering an amendment to increase the capacity limit to 20 rounds for handgun magazines and 30 rounds for long gun magazines, remove the restriction on removeable floor plates, and allow the continued possession of magazines lawfully owned before the ban.
Again, please contact your state representative and ask them to OPPOSE SB 6.
