Your NRA-ILA has learned that this hearing has been postponed and has not yet been rescheduled for a hearing. SB 83 would violate the due process of Delaware citizens.
SB 83 would exceed current Delaware and federal law, and would allow abuse orders, which can be issued ex parte, to be issued without evidence that a person committed any actual act of harm against a person, or that the person has even been charged with any criminal act. After the order has been processed a person would be disqualified from owning any firearms or ammunition.
Your NRA-ILA will continue to keep you updated when more information is made available or when a new hearing has been scheduled for SB 83.
