Keeping Our Children Safe

Delaware’s Republican Legislators have a plan to keep your children safe.
Delaware House and Senate Republicans have unveiled a package of legislative proposals aimed at improving overall public safety in Delaware. Our reforms are simple, make sense and have the safety of all of our children at heart. Our legislation has 4 parts. 1.A House bill creating the Delaware School Safety and Security Fund for emergency expenditures to improve school safety 2.A Senate Concurrent Resolution that will examine implementing a system to allow emergency text messages to be sent to Delaware 9-1-1 call centers 3.A House bill requiring the installation of a “crisis button” in each Delaware public school to alert law enforcement when there is an emergency 4.A package that will be introduced includes the following firearms-related bills •A House bill increasing the penalties that relate to the possession of a firearm by a person prohibited •A Senate bill expanding the crime of “providing a false statement” to include falsely reporting a lost or stolen firearm •A House bill stiffening the penalties for the use of a firearm during the commission of a crime
Real leadership begins with thoughtful proposals based in the real world.

  1. I had heard and seen these proposals already. I am glad to see school safety being specifically addressed. My only criticism is the following:

    1. Instead of increasing penalties which still leaves the sentencing time to the discretion of the judges. come up with specific guidelines with Mandatory sentences without early release parole possible.

    We need to find out where these guns are coming from that are used in the commission of crimes in our state. In 2011 NYPD seized 9,000 firearms 1,200 of those 9,000 firearms were sold originally in Virginia.

  2. None of these Republican measures would have prevented the double homicide at the New Castle County Courthouse.

  3. Nothing Democrats have ever suggested would have prevented the double homicide at the New Castle County Courthouse.

  4. The first inquiry should be: Would ANYTHING “have prevented the double homicide at the New Castle County Courthouse?”

  5. Democrats have never put forward any proposals that will successfully turn lead into gold

  6. I am glad to see school safety being specifically addressed. My only criticism is the following:

    Whereas all these REPUBLICAN proposals only take care of those who get caught, the Democrats plan is much better. It does something to stop a murder from taking place… Under the Democratic plan, THE VICTIMS DON'[T GET SHOT. Under the Republican plan, the victims still die a horrible and painful death.

    Raising the number of years for any crime is silly. No criminal ever expects to get caught… And if he is not caught, … the penalties don’t do a damn thing to get in his way of committing the next crime… Silly Republicans

    However, if she could not acquire any guns because the Democrats passed such awesome legislation that the illegal market completely dried up, she could not commit a gun crime even if she wasn’t caught. She would probably have to use a crowbar to kill someone. Nothing in these jokingly REPUBLICAN attempts to look like they too even care about little dead children, would penalize her any more because she used a crowbar. This is the silliest piece of legislation brought before the General Assembly this year…

    Democrats rule. Republicans drool… Always was. Always will be.

    WHAT do Democrat proposals do to stop a murder from taking place ????

    That’s the whole point: Democrat proposals will FAIL, and you know they will fail.

    Whereas Republican proposals will actually diminish the problem, Democrat proposals will only make Democrats FEEL like they are doing something, when they really are not.

    Of course, that’s the goal, Kavips, isn’t it?

    Your goal is to FEEL GOOD — not to do anything in reality.

    Democrat proposals are superior at making you FEEL like you are “doing something” even though they will fail in reality.

    Kavips writes: “Under the Democratic plan, THE VICTIMS DON’[T GET SHOT.”

    HOW? How will any Democrat plan keep anyone from getting shot?

    Answer: It won’t.

    Under the Democrat plan, more people will get shot because everyone will know there isn’t any enforcement.

    The Democrats will want us to “understand” the shooter and how he suffered from eating twinkies or genetically modified vegetables as a child and it is really society’s fault.

    The one thing we could really do to save lives — hold video games and Hollywood accountable for promoting violence — Democrats will never consider.

    Liberals will tell us that having role models smoke cigarettes will encourage cigarette smoking.

    But liberals will tell us that kids spending hundreds of hours role-playing murder with guns in video games won’t have any affect on them at all.

  8. But remember: Republicans have never put forward any proposals that would turn the moon blue or green in color.

  9. Jon.

    The murder rates are so high because there is no control. Weapons move from areas of no law, into areas where they are prohibited.

    Democrats would make background checks mandatory everywhere. There is no reason any sane, rational gun owner should fear a background check. Heck, your whole life’s record is on view if you get pulled over for a non working taillight….

    When guns become harder to get, they become fewer in number. The idea is to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. Republican policies and the NRA, actually work to put guns into the hands of criminals…

    That is why Democrats will solve crime. Republicans will condone and work to promote even more of it….
