A synopsis of HB325 reads:
This bill closes a loophole to our gun background check laws. The current loophole allows for guns to be given to a potential purchaser if the background check is delayed for 3 days or more. In some cases a gun is given to a person who should not be in possession of a firearm. This leads to law enforcement having to retrieve a gun from a person prohibited if the background check provides that a person should not have a gun.HB 325’s Primary Sponsor Rep Osienski, with additional sponsors Rep. Longhurst and Sen.Townsend. Co-Sponsors include Reps. Baumbach, Bentz, Heffernan, Jaques, Kowalko, Lynn, Mitchell, Schwartzkopf, Viola; Sens. Blevins, McDowell, Peterson.
According to many gun-rights activists and enthusiasts, “The entire background check requirement itself is just a back-door registration scheme. Anyone who doesn’t think the FBI is keeping records of all these gun purchases is about as naive as a liberal gun grabbger,”stated Delaware Association for Gun Rights (DAGR). “DAGR does not bother getting into party politics, as gun owners in Delaware have been betrayed by pretty much everyone on both sides of the aisle in one way or another. We do not endorse candidates or specific political parties.”
Four liberal democrats representatives voted against this bill that further infringes on our Second Amendment rights, but Steve smyk voted YES and the bill moves to the senate, where it will probably pass! Thanks but no thanks, Steve Smyk. Your actions speak louder than your words, “Lying Steve, you said during your campaign that you were pro Second Amendment and you, “lied like a trooper!” You sold the people of Delaware down the river.”
