Today, the Delaware House passed gun control legislation, House Bill 63, by a 22 to 19 vote. HB 63 now heads to the Senate for further consideration. Please contact your state Senator and strongly urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 63 when it comes up for a vote.
House Bill 63 amends the current law on access to firearms to create a blanket prohibition from having a firearm unsecured and unavailable for use if it is potentially accessible by an “unauthorized person.” This mandatory storage law would do nothing more than render firearms useless in self-defense situations. Criminals love this bill as it tips the scales in their favor in self-defense situations. Further, this legislation seeks to place the blame on law-abiding gun owners for the potential criminal actions of others.
Again, please contact your state Senator and urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 63 when it comes up for a vote.
