On Wednesday, the Senate Executive Committee will hear House Bill 450 House Amendment 1, to ban many commonly-owned firearms, along with Senate Bill 302, to bankrupt the firearm industry with frivolous lawsuits, and Senate Bill 8, to amend Delaware’s machine gun ban. Tomorrow, the Senate will consider House Bill 423, to require firearm dealers to conduct background checks with the state, rather than use the existing federal system. In addition, this week, the House can consider Senate Bill 6, to ban many standard capacity magazines in common use, and House Bill 451, to deprive young adults of their Second Amendment rights. Please contact your lawmakers and ask them to OPPOSE these bills.
Today, the Delaware Senate voted 13-7 to pass an amended version of Senate Bill 6, the so-called “Delaware Large Capacity Magazine Prohibition Act.” It bans possessing magazines with a capacity greater than seventeen rounds of ammunition, including those that may “readily be converted” over that capacity. 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. SB 6 now goes back to the House for concurrence.
As a reminder, the House Administration Committee will hear House Bill 450, to ban many commonly-owned firearms, and House Bill 451, to deprive young adults of their Second Amendment rights, tomorrow, at 11:00AM. NRA members and Second Amendment supporters are encouraged to attend in person, or by video conference.
Ongoing – H.B. 400
This is a terrible bill with repercussions that will change the fundamental rights of parents. In short it will allow minors to receive and undergo gender and sexual treatments WITHOUT the parent’s being told and to charge their insurance without the ability to find out what the charge is for or what procedure was about.
This was pushed through the “Economic Development /Banking/Insurance and Commerce Committee.” You may ask why is this proposal pushed through this committee that seemingly has no ties to the actual substance of the bill, and the answer lies in one party trying to slide in an agenda without the watchful eyes of the public.
Please do not let this happen. Contact your legislator and tell him/her that this is unacceptable. Below is the link of the legislation…
As an aside, Bill Bush is the head of said committee. Be sure to ask him why he allowed such harmful legislation to get pushed (silently) through the committee he heads up.

Please reject H.B.400. This bill has nothing to do with this committee, as was stated earlier. This bill should be against the law, and should NEVER be pushed through and passed.
Luckily this died on the floor. But the fact that it was pushed through the committee, is a travesty. Thanks for your input.
