Delaware legislators are considering new gun control measures, but a town hall meeting Monday showed if they are to be passed, it will be done in the face of passionate opposition.
Most of the 400 people at a bipartisan town hall in Middletown, Del., opposed several new gun control proposals in the state’s General Assembly, the Delaware State News reported. Those proposals include bans on so-called assault weapons and bump stocks, measures to prevent the mentally ill and those on the federal terror watchlist from obtaining a gun, and a law preventing adults under the age of 21 from buying rifles.
State Sen. Brian Pettyjohn (R.), drew applause for his argument that the assault weapons ban would restrict the rights of law-abiding gun owners in response to the actions of criminals.
“We’re taking away the liberty of an individual to purchase one of these items because somebody else did something bad with it,” he said.
