Delaware: Gun Ban Dies in the Delaware Senate

Today, Senate Bill 163 was defeated for the second time this session when the gun ban legislation failed to garner enough votes to be brought to the floor for consideration.  Senate Bill 163 was one of the most extreme gun control bills introduced this session.

Introduced as Senate Bill 163 and pushed by Governor Carney, this anti-gun legislation sought to ban semi-automatic firearms commonly-owned for self-defense, target shooting and hunting.  Further, SB 163 would have banned the sale, transfer, purchase, or possession of so-called “assault weapons.”

Thank you to NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters who continued to contact their lawmakers in opposition to this legislation.  Also, special thanks to those legislators who supported the Second Amendment rights of Delaware citizens by voting against Senate Bill 163.
