The small state of Delaware isn’t known for much. But one of the things it has long celebrated is that it was the first state to ratify the U.S. Constitution, making it “The First State,” as our license plates proudly display.
But in recent years, governor after governor has scrambled to create new slogans for the state, possibly because they are ashamed of any affiliation to the Constitution and what it stands for. Gov. John Carney, Delaware’s current gubernatorial leader, would like to see the state become more like New Jersey – if one could even consider that an aspiration.
After being unable to pass several anti-gun bills in the General Assembly in 2018, Delaware’s liberals are back at it again. And as if to display a “we’ll show you” attitude, this year’s bills are even more egregious than those squashed in 2018.
Three new anti-gun bills were introduced this week in Delaware’s Senate:
- SB-68 would ban nearly every semi-auto firearm in existence, once again focusing the abolitionists’ blind rage on the general description of the objects they hate;
- SB-69 would establish a requirement for every law-abiding citizen to acquire (at their own expense) a purchase permit to obtain any firearm. They might as well nickname the bill “Jim Crow,” because it will certainly have a devastating effect on low-income families. But wait, there’s more – it would also establish a searchable database of registered gun owners;
- SB-70 is the cookie-cutter magazine ban that would make any standard capacity magazine capable of holding more than 15 rounds illegal – even though there is no evidence to suggest that magazine capacity and crime are related in any way. It works retroactively which means current owners would have to turn them over or else face misdemeanor (for the first offense) or felony (for each subsequent offense) charges. SB-70 is confiscation of lawfully owned property without compensation which seemingly runs afoul of the Fifth Amendment.
To create the illusion of support for the legislation that their out-of-state masters have prescribed, Delaware Dems bussed in a handful of redshirt Bloomberg-funded “Moms,” who are demanding that good people be stripped of their freedom. They literally arrived in a bus that was arranged for them. It is estimated that there were about 30 or so “moms” supporting these bills.
In sharp contrast, a true grassroots army arrived on the scene. Hundreds of pro-gun citizens showed up at Legislative Hall in Dover Wednesday to protest and oppose these bills. These people arrived on their own dime, many taking time from their jobs and busy schedules on a weekday. And yet, the anti-gun legislators and their partners in media will insist that there is a groundswell of support for their unconstitutional plans.
Legislation like this is spreading from state to state, funded by Bloomberg and others like him. Your country is literally being bought and sold from underneath you. Stop looking at the national level for threats to your freedom, because while you are, it is being taken from you by those in your own backyard.
Many of those in power view overwhelming opposition to anti-gun legislation as an obstacle to be overcome, rather than a mandate to follow. This, in a nutshell, is the new government that has been propped up by New York billionaires with Napoleon complexes, and agendas. If your state government hasn’t yet been bought and paid for by these tyrants – don’t worry, it will be soon.
