Gun Safety Bills Die in Delaware Legislative Committee
Proposed gun safety legislation was shelved this legislative session in Delaware.
This included a ban on certain semi-automatic weapons, requiring a permit and training course to purchase a firearm and a 15 round cap on magazines.
The measures stalled in committee as the group Delaware Gun Rights group held a rally outside Legislative Hall at the end of the session.
Among the featured speakers was Maryland Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis who has been an opponent of such laws in his state.
Meanwhile, state Senator Bryan Townsend who sponsored the permit bill told WBOC that this was a glaring failure.
Townsend and fellow state Senator Laura Sturgeon – both Democrats – said it was unlikely they would bring their bill back next year.
