Normally, the NRA begins notifying their gun nut members to contact their legislators at the point a bill enters a committee hearing. With these bills, the alerting started unusual early, before even being assigned to a committee. By doing this, the NRA indicated a heightened concern for the possible success of these bills. So remember, the eventual passage of these bills can only happen if concerned citizens help them along.
👍 Senate Bill 68 would ban assault weapons.
👍 Senate Bill 69 would require training and a permit to purchase a gun.
👍 Senate Bill 70 would ban magazines that hold more than 15 rounds of ammunition.

Offsetting the power of NRA gun nut members is important. A quick phone call is very effective. Please call the office of your Delaware State Senator. Ask for support of SB 68, SB 69 and SB 70.
