Delaware Advances Gun Ban and Age Discrimination

a Delaware committee is advancing anti-gun measures. IMG NRA-ILA

U.S.A. -( Yesterday, the House Administration Committee voted to advance House Bill 450, to ban many commonly-owned firearms, and House Bill 451, to deprive young adults of their Second Amendment rights. The Committee allowed individuals who traveled to Dover only one minute of testimony in the hearing. When the constitutionality of these bills was brought up by witnesses, Democratic members of the Committee commented that it was time for the courts to decide. They will now go to the full House for further consideration. Please contact your state representative and ask them to OPPOSE House Bills 450 and 451.


House Bill 450 imposes a Maryland-style ban on many commonly-owned rifles, shotguns, and handguns that law-abiding citizens use for self-defense and sport. Citizens who own such firearms prior to the ban may continue to possess them, but the burden is on them to prove that they owned them prior. The state will provide the option for owners to apply for certification that banned firearms were owned prior. Banned firearms may only be transferred to direct family members or bequeathed to heirs. They also may only be possessed at, or transported to and from, certain locations, such the owner’s residence, shooting ranges, private property with the property owner’s permission, or licensed firearm dealers.

House Bill 451 discriminates against adults aged 18-20 by prohibiting them from purchasing, owning, possessing, or controlling any firearm or ammunition other than shotguns and shotgun ammunition, unless they have a Concealed Deadly Weapon Permit. This violates the Second Amendment rights of those who are legally adults and are deemed old enough to vote, serve on a jury, enter into binding contracts, get married, and enlist in the military, unless they first pay fees to the government and go through red tape to get their rights back.

Again, please contact your state representative and ask them to OPPOSE House Bills 450 and 451.

“How a politician stands on the Second Amendment tells you how he or she views you as an individual… as a trustworthy and productive citizen, or as part of an unruly crowd that needs to be lorded over, controlled, supervised, and taken care of.” — Representative Suzanna Gratia Hupp (TX)
“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined.” — Patrick Henry, during Virginia’s Convention to Ratify the Constitution (1788)


Thanks for nothing nra


The No Gun Zone law passed in 1990, sponsored by Joe Biden, which banned guns in certain public places notably public schools that facilitated these shootings. This law ” enables and guarantees a successful mass shooting every time” by making everyone in the public school system or venue defenseless and easy targets. This law also guarantees the shooters’ safety by making sure they alone had weapons during the carnage. Please notice that all these shooting occur at public schools, this law does not cover private schools or events which have their own armed security. There have been no mass shootings at private schools in the same 30 years. (1990 to… Read more »


There are no laws that will disincentivise criminals from harming people, only armed deterent. Politicians and bureaucrats continue to prove they can’t disarm criminals, only their victims.


Gonna borrow that.


I know I’m probably in the minority on a site like this, but I do think we should change the law concerning age, making it 21 years old to purchase a firearm. Exceptions could be made for those in active military service. If parents want their 18 year old to have a gun, they could purchase it and give it as a gift, just like any other underage child, and accept some of the responsibility involved. Although there are many exceptions, most 18-20 year old individuals today are not responsible enough. The old days when most grew up on farms… Read more »

Not a personal attack, but no.


It isn’t hard.

If you get your wish, it will have no effect. Next year (after some other mass murder) people like you will be back asking for just a little bit more “common sense gun control we can all agree on.” It will never end.

Wild Bill

So you think that government should be able to take away a person’s Constitutionally protected Right just by function of Congress and a president’s signature. If government could do that, they will diminish every Constitutional Right when ever they have the votes.


“Today’s youth are soft and often spoiled.”

I encourage you to get out and meet a better class of young people.


You can either be a “proud supporter of the Second Amendment” or you can support infringements like banning people from buying firearms but you can’t do both.


Compromise. It sounds so — fair and equitable. But the only ones who are expected to compromise are the gun owners. We are expected to compromise our rights, freedom and safety so that the uncompromising anti-gunners can “feel” safer. Have you ever heard of them compromising and repealing a bad gun law because it didn’t work? All 20,000+ gun laws are working so well that we need more? It is not compromise, it is capitulation that they are demanding. Lindsey “The Bloviator” Graham is only too willing to “compromise” our rights. Just what are we getting? What are the gun… Read more »


Democratic state of affairs
More laws do not mean less crime Not enforcing the law is now a democratic policy.

More enforcement of the law creates a environment that criminals dislike the democrats and the elected keep making the same mistakes over and over for political theater. Pandering for votes from those who remain attached to a party that has no moral values .
Harris The vice president believes abortion up to the day birth is the right choice. Biden does not know what day it is he has to be told what to say.
