DeCAGV Legislative Fund EMERGENCY UPDATE

The Delaware Coalition Against Gun Violence Legislative Fund coordinates with national gun violence prevention groups and local grassroots activists with one goal in mind:

Pass laws in Delaware that make our communities safer.

In the wake of yet another gun tragedy in Parkland, Florida, we hear our friends and neighbors ask: “What can we do?”

Right now, we are working to support three bills in the General Assembly.

This year, we can:

• Make it a crime in Delaware to sell, transfer, buy, receive or possess a trigger crank or bump-stock devices of the type that gunman Stephen Paddock used to kill 58 people and wound 500 more in Las Vegas. (HB 300)

• Limit access to firearms for those who present a danger to themselves or others, while giving our mental health professionals more tools to help patients they believe could harm themselves or others. (HB 302)

• Give families and law enforcement a legal process they can follow to temporarily remove firearms from someone exhibiting signs of being a significant danger to themselves and others. (HB 222)

We need your help. We need your support. We need your voice.

Please join our coalition, follow us on Facebook and watch this newsletter for more information in coming weeks about how you can use your voice to affect real change in Delaware.
