New Anti-Gun Proposals In Delaware

posted on March 30, 2016

The Delaware Coalition for Common Sense said in its first public event Monday that it will push for new gun-control laws in the General Assembly this year. The group brought in former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords to help stump for the anti-gun bills.

The first measure—erroneously categorized as a “loophole” by the coalition—would deny licensed firearm dealers the ability to proceed with a sale if no determination is made by the FBI during the three-day waiting period. In other words, Delaware citizens’ Second Amendment rights would be denied due to government’s inability to efficiently process background checks.

A second bill would enable family members to have guns confiscated from someone they believe might have a potential for violence. No due process, no opportunity to defend yourself—just a constitutional right ripped away based on someone else’s judgment.

Where is the “common sense” in either of these proposals?
