More "Gun Show Loophole" nonsense in Delaware

True to their word, anti-gunners never stop trying to infringe upon the rights of law-abiding American citizens.  Case in point,  Jack Markell and the Delaware Legislature are once again trying to "close the gun-show loophole."

SB39 is not an outright private sale ban like so many of these so-called "gun show loophole" bills.   Instead it would ban private sales only at gun show venues and on the premisis.  So, do your private sale in the gun show parking lot and it's a crime, but walk across the street to another parking lot and you're in the clear.  It's pretty clear that this is nothing more than "feel good" legislation that'll do nothing but infringe upon the rights of Delaware gun owners.

 If anti's have shown us one thing it's that they won't stop here. Jack Markell nor the gun-grabbers sponsoring this bill have presented any evidence that this is a problem in need of fixing.  They've shown no evidence that DE's violent criminals are getting guns at our gunshows, nor have they shown proof that such a proposal would do anything beyond making it more difficult for you and I to buy/sell lawfully owned property.

The entire state has two small gun shows per year.  Were this law to pass it would have no impact on crime in Wilmington and next we'd hear how we need to ban the dangerous "private sale" loophole throughout the state.

A liberal Democrat pushing gun control?  This is my shocked face :O
