2018 DE Gun Grabbing

http://www.wboc.com/story/37577428/d...assault-rifles

Quote:
Democratic Gov. John Carney is calling on Delaware lawmakers to ban the sale of assault-style rifles.

Carney said in a statement Friday that his administration will work with lawmakers to craft legislation prohibiting the sale of such firearms.

Carney says military-style weapons can be used to carry out catastrophic acts of violence and have no place in the hands of civilians.
The GOP here isn't much better.
Quote:
Delaware House Republicans issued a response to Carney's proposed ban.

"The proposed assault weapon sales ban is a misguided effort that will only serve to further politically polarize Delawareans with no hope of making any real impact on the desired goal of reducing isolated incidents of mass violence. I instead urge the governor to work in a non-partisan fashion with all the members of the 149th General Assembly to create rational laws that will actually make a difference," said House Minority Leader Danny Short in a sattement.

Short said he and his caucus colleagues generally support a ban on the sale and use of so-called bump-stocks and trigger-crank devices.

Several other gun-control measures already are pending in the legislature, including a ban on bump stocks and legislation allowing authorities to seize firearms from anyone deemed by a mental health professional to pose a potential threat to others.

Short noted that he and his caucus colleagues generally support a ban on bump stocks as well as legislation that would keep firearms out of the hands of dangerous people.

Sounds like the Republican leadership wants death of a thousand cuts when it comes to inalienable rights.

I see them all in the Eastern part of Sussex, more meters going in than you can shake a stick at.
Millsboro and Georgetown looks like the front yard of the UN for a Sunday afternoon pig and goat roast.

I was at the library in Frankford a coupla years ago deliverin’ paper. Went inside to git somebody to open the back door. I caught part of a purty heated kinda conversation with a gal on the tellyphone who was apparently talkin’ to somebody at a branch up in New Castle somewhere. That thar’s at least one that feels folks in New Castle county look down they noses at ‘em.

I know what you mean but the problem is the majority of local folks don't have the capital to fight or control land use and they are rapidly becoming the minority.
I think they are the minority now. The good old boy system is going the way of the passenger pigeon.

The Northeastern liberal transplant influence is beginning to run strong in Delaware. I think for a long time Delaware was protected from a lot of the libtard influence by only having three counties of fairly conservative locals, and a relatively huge per capita military community around Dover. But now you have more and more retirees from places like New York and New Jersey moving down there for the beach and the taxes after screwing up their own state.

That's right! The only hing protecting any locals now is the lack of roads wide enough to fit any more people in.
It's certainly not electric facilities. Thats already done for the most part.
