Passed Delaware Gun Law HB325

  this is an anti-gun bill
Legislation Overview

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.
