Delaware Governor John Carney is following in the footsteps of the state’s not-so-favorite son Joe Biden and is scheduled to sign extreme Permit to Purchase legislation in Dover today. Senate Substitute 1 for Senate Bill 2 (SB 2) will impose a Maryland-style “handgun qualified purchase card” and a handgun transfer registry, creating a perpetual cycle of costs and delays to maintain your ability to purchase a handgun.

SB 2 requires citizens to obtain a deceptively named “handgun qualified purchaser permit” to purchase or receive a handgun, with an exemption for carry permit holders. To obtain a permit, an applicant is required to, at their own expense, take an approved training course and submit fingerprints. The permits are to be renewed every two years, although the training course is valid for five years. The State Bureau of Identification has up to 30 days to issue a permit. Additionally, this legislation creates a registry of all lawful handgun transfers.

    • It is and still pending challenge after over a century here in NY. But different circuit court so they may have a chance of a real hearing.

      • All Gun Control zealots have to do to come up with another Gun Control scheme is dig around in the diabolical Roots of Gun Control. Nothing the Gun Control ratbassturds do is original, in one form or another everything they do has happened throughout history.

        Gun Control zealots know they can get away with anything because most Americans are clueless Gun Control History illiterates who cannot draw the connection between Gun Control and Slavery, lynching, concentration camps, etc. However when the same group of history illiterates see a noose they draw a connection and react with outrage…but nothing when it comes to the much more evil Gun Control and why is that?

        When you sit on your behind and fail to Define Gun Control And you give the bigoted scum on this forum a pass you embolden the Gun Control that keeps popping up like Tulips in Springtime…you know who you are.

        • May want to look into Newsome re Mulford act. For the quick summary yes it was racist and worrying but it’s probably a good idea so we will keep it. Also a little discrimination against Catholics and Italians doesn’t bother anyone in charge here in NY so no your approach will not achieve the goals you claim. Need to break the hold on power as that is all tyrants will ever care about.

  1. Delaware, an outhouse by any other name!

    Isn’t Delaware the state that prosecuted a female veteran for having a hollow point bullet in her vehicle.

    • I think that was NJ, where HP’s are effectively illegal, unless you’re a cop of course.

    • Milsurp beat me to it, no Delaware used to be pretty great for gun laws especially with no sales tax but a steady diet of NJ/NY retirees and pandemic refugees has turned it into an extension of the Metro area…….. with Philly style street crime in Wilmington.

  2. I think I’ve got it figured out. Gun laws such as this are a S.T.D. Think about it. 😉

  3. Last sentence is incomplete “……….registry of lawful handgun owners” needs the following added “and a state ownership registry available to all governmental agencies.”

  4. These officials need to be sued for civil rights violations and forced to pay out gazillions in fines and civil damages. Break them financially so they can’t even afford to live out their lives in a cardboard box on some street corner.

  5. This system doesn’t sound rife for corruption at all. Next thing you know they’ll be using it to keep the poor and minorities from exercising their rights.

    Maybe they will bring back literacy tests and poll taxing as well.

    • No they are doing the NY method, next is handing out drivers licenses to illegal aliens and then accidentally adding them to the voter rolls.

      • It’s not a case of IF the Democrats will cheat in the 2024 elections but by how much.

    • You’re likely correct given that Delaware didn’t ratify the 13th Amendment until 1901.🤔

      • What I remember a squad mate bragging about was last state to get rid of slavery and last state to whip or hang a person as legal punishment.

  6. You’re likely correct given that Delaware didn’t ratify the 13th Amendment until 1901.🤔

  7. Can anybody imagine the outcry if you had to pay for a paper and pencil or printer purchasing permit. How about if you had to take a government approved course of instruction before you used it. You know, so you didn’t spread malicious rumors or misinformation.

    • NY proposed 3d printer check/permit would like a word. Easy to imagine and getting easier the more collectivism takes root.

  8. California has a requirement for a Firearms Safety Certificate that has to be in effect at all times you are in possession of a firearm (used to be only for purchasing), but those requirements are (at present) a lot less onerous and do not require a background check or approved training class or fingerprints. Any system that requires a background check to get a permit to buy a gun is silly; you have to have a background check AGAIN to actually purchase a firearm, and the buyer’s prints are taken at the point of sale. Yup, just another road block.

  9. Sadly, the NRA/ILA did NOTHING in Connecticut when they did this to us. Delaware, NY, MD, MA, RI, etc. are all democRat strongholds and their large cities are how they stay in power. The large cities are also where the worst crime is. Gun control, gun violence it’s all the same bs; It is not about controlling criminals, it is about control.
