Proposed Delaware Firearm Legislation SB52

  this is an anti-gun bill
Legislation Overview

Title: An Act To Amend Title 11 Of The Delaware Code Relating To The Delaware Criminal Code.

Description: Delawares existing Criminal Code was adopted in 1973 and was based on the Model Penal Code. Since that time, the Criminal Code has quadrupled in size and provisions related to crimes expanded to other parts of the Code without consideration to the general effects of the change on the Criminal Codes overall structure, its terminology, or its application, creating numerous inconsistencies, redundancies, ambiguities and contradictions. In 2014, the General Assembly established the Criminal Justice Improvement Committee to review opportunities for efficiencies in the Delaware Criminal Code, including identifying: disproportionate, redundant, outdated, duplicative, or inefficient statutes and crimes that should or should not constitute potential jail time. The Criminal Justice Improvement Committee Working Group was created to accomplish the Criminal Justice Improvement Committees stated goals and has worked diligently for the last three years, in concert with other criminal justice stakeholders, to restore the criminal code to a clear, readable, and proportional code. The recommendations found in their Final Report are the bases for this Act and its companion bill.
