Dear Delaware Coalition Against Gun Violence,

Thanks to our supporters and allies like you, we achieved a huge victory against the gun lobby! Yesterday, we joined Governor Markell and prime sponsors Rep. Ed Osienski, Rep. Val Longhurst, and Sen. Bryan Townsend at the signing ceremony for HB 325, which closes the Charleston Loophole by extending the 3-day default proceed on background checks to 25-days. This life saving measure will give more time for proper background checks to be performed on gun sales across our state!

We were proud to stand with the Governor yesterday as he signed this bill into law. This victory is hugely important not only to our state, but to the entire nation as we all continue to see inaction on gun violence in the U.S. Congress. This is a huge moment. Can we count on you to help keep the momentum going? There is still much to do, and we must continue to increase our resources to keep making progress.

Your gift to Delaware Coalition Against Gun Violence will go a long way to help us to continue to achieve legislative victories and tell the gun lobby that Delaware wants none of their culture of fear. Please give what you can today.


George Higgins

Executive Director
