Local Impact of McDonald

The News Journal says "Repeal of Gun Ban May Hit Home"

Naturally the fact that he might not have the power to strip Delaware citizens of their civil rights "disappoints" Wilmington City Councilman Kevin Kelley, who says,

"There is no place for handguns in the city of Wilmington," "I guess, as always, there is only so much a local municipality can do without the federal government intervening."

I park down in the hood, and I've seen people with poorly concealed handguns several times. I'll bet money that not one of them has their Delaware CCDW.

Frankly, given what our State Constitution says it should be the State who intervenes to knock Kelley & his fellow petty tyrants down a peg. They took an oath to uphold the State Constitution which includes a part that Mr. Kelley has forgotten.

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."

If Delaware citizens have a Constitutional right to keep arms for defense of their HOMES, then clearly that applies to public housing, and it certainly applies to the City of Wilmington. The Delaware Constitution applies to all Delawareans. It doesn't magically disappear because they happen to live somewhere where their overlords don't think handguns are appropriate.

If there is no place for firearms in the city, is the clueless councilor going to disarm the police then announce his home address?

Guess some people think the law of the land doesn't apply if they don't want it to?

Never mind the fact that sport shooting is a fast growing sport and could be a huge revenue stream for a city.

Think of how much a city owned, indoor range could help fill the coffers.
