Delaware HB217

Title: An Act To Amend Title 11 Of The Delaware Code Relating To Law Enforcement Procedure With Respect To Firearms And Firearm Related Evidence.

Description: One of the findings of the Wilmington Public Safety Strategies Commission was that the Wilmington Police Department should enhance its use of firearms investigative and intelligence tools and ballistics technology in investigating and preventing violent crime. The report went on to recommend adoption of a protocol such as the one employed by New Jersey statute in 2013 to mandate statewide the use of certain nationwide firearm and ballistics databases. This bill is modeled on the New Jersey statute. It mandates the entry of ballistics information into the National Integrated Ballistics Identification Network, and firearm information into the ATF E-Trace system and the National Crime Information Center System. This bill further directs the Department of Safety and Homeland Security, in cooperation with the Department of Justice, to develop a statewide standard protocol for the recovery and processing of firearms and firearm related evidence.

Delaware HB325

Title: An Act To Amend Title 11 Of The Delaware Code Relating To Criminal History Background Checks In Connection With The Sale, Transfer, Or Delivery Of Firearms.

Description: 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.

Title: Relating to carry or use of a handgun or deadly weapon

Description: The purpose of this bill is to authorize residents of the State of West Virginia to carry a firearm in a concealed manner, without permit, so long as certain conditions are met. The bill permits eligible persons to carry a handgun for self-defense purposes, without permit, while afield. It establishes that criminal penalties for carrying a concealed deadly weapon without state license or other lawful authorization apply only to persons under twenty-one years of age. The bill requires an applicant for a concealed weapon permit to be a United States citizen or legal resident thereof and a resident of this state and of the county in which application is made. The bill permits persons eighteen years and older to obtain a concealed carry permit. It requires actual live firing of ammunition in training and requires an applicant for a concealed carry permit to provide a copy of the instructor’s certification. The bill requires that on or after January 1, 2017, all duplicate license cards issued by county sheriffs to be uniform across all fifty-five counties and feature a photograph of the licensee. It requires State Police, in cooperation with the Sheriffs’ Bureau of Professional Standards, to prepare uniform applications for licenses and license cards. The bill creates a provisional license to carry concealed deadly weapons for persons between eighteen and twenty-one years of age and establishes provisional license application requirements and procedures. The bill exempts members of the United States Armed Forces, Reserve or National Guard from permit requirements and eliminates the requirement for persons twenty-one years of age and older to possess a permit to carry a concealed deadly weapon provided that certain conditions are met, including being a United States citizen or legal resident, being twenty-one years of age or older and not prohibited from possessing firearms. The bill requires a school principal to report certain violations to the State Police, provides enhanced penalties for use of a firearm during commission of a felony. And, provides for an exception to enhanced penalties in certain circumstances when a firearm is used in defense of self or others.
