Delaware: “Terrorist Watchlist” Legislation to be Considered by Senate Tomorrow

Today, anti-gun lawmakers in the Delaware Legislature introduced “Terrorist Watchlist” legislation, Senate Bill 287, which lacks due process.  In a procedural move to fast track the legislation without public input, the rules have been suspended to bring it to the Senate floor first thing tomorrow.  It is imperative that you contact your legislators immediately and politely urge them to OPPOSE this legislation.


Senate Bill 287 seeks to remove the right to due process of those on the “Terrorist Watchlist” when taking away their firearm rights. Individuals may be added to the watchlist without being charged or convicted of any crimes, and those on the list are never notified if, how, or why they are on the list.  There is no process in place to have your name removed from the list, and mistaken identities are common.  In every other case in which a person is deprived of their firearm rights, they are afforded a judicial proceeding. Due process of the law must be followed before depriving anyone of their Constitutional rights.

Again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Senator and urge them to oppose Senate Bill 287 when it comes up for a vote.
