Leaving loaded guns around children is apparently OK with the NRA because they oppose a safe storage bill. The NRA says, “Criminals love this bill as it tips the scales in their favor in self-defense situations.” The NRA fails to mention that criminals love to break into houses with unlocked guns so they can steal them.
Yesterday (3/27), the Delaware House passed this bill and sent it on to the Senate.
👍House Bill 63 would require that all guns be locked up if accessible by a minor or a prohibited person.
