NRA Takes Aim at Delaware Gun Show Bill

Posted:

DOVER, Del. (AP)- The National Rifle Association is urging supporters to contact lawmakers in Delaware in an effort to defeat legislation that the group claims will ban private sales at gun shows in Delaware.

The NRA contends that the true intent of the bill, which was to be discussed in a Senate committee on Wednesday, is to move toward a total ban on all private guns sales, even those between family members and friends.

The NRA also says the measure to close the so-called gun show loophole for gun sales will do nothing to reduce crime because criminals will continue to obtain their guns illegally.

The bill is part of a series of gun control measures proposed by Gov. Jack Markell, whose office says the NRA criticism is off target.
