Wonderful News in the 1st State........

Thanks Robb, this is NOT what I wanted to read to start my morning. As you said, what part of "Shall not be infringed" do these folks not get?

Looks like the DSP is doing exactly the kinds of things us gun owners worry about. Keeping a database of purchases and denying purchases based on completely arbitrary and discriminatory criteria.

Words can't describe how miffed I am right now, but I'm at work so no long post yet. I can't believe Robb beat me to this. I'm slacking.

I'll update this later, maybe at lunch.

Looks like the the DSP and Nefosky need to re-read the Delaware Constitution, particularly this passage from Article 1, Section 20.

"A person has the right to keep and bear arms for the defense of self, family, home. and State, and for hunting and recreational use."

Imagine if this woman had been denied the right to vote because a State election worker decided she was "too old and senile." The local (and national) press would have a field day and we'd hear from the ACLU within hours. This deals with infringement of the one civil right the press hates, so for the most part it'll be quietly swept under the rug and ignored by the MSM. Imagine that, a story of police misconduct and civil rights abuses will be ignored by the MSM. Only in the realm of gun rights would that be possible.

UPDATE - Miss AO asks,

Why Would a 81 Year Old Woman Want a .22? and she links to an article in today's Delaware Online detailing a home invasion of an 85 year old man. Boy, why WOULD an old lady want a gun for home defense in little old Delaware?

I was just about to email you regarding this story. I wanted to make sure you saw it. post up who you want me to direct letters to.

I have to figure out who I want to write. Can't really send a letter to the DSP as that could have negative implications for my brother.

well if you want let me know and I'll write that one. Not sure how much it helps coming from a non resident- but this is just unacceptable.
