Bump Stock Bill Amended Again

Senator Brian Pettyjohn must own tons of bump stocks.  Because he just had to amend HB300 for the EIGHTH freaking time to make the first offense under the new law of possession of a bump stock a Class B Misdemeanor instead of a Class A Misdemeanor.

A Class A misdemeanor is the most serious type of misdemeanor in Delaware, punishable by up to one year in jail and a fine up to $2,300. Class B misdemeanors are punishable by up to six months in jail, a fine of up to $1,150, and restitution.

I suppose the Soft on Crime Pettyjohn Amendment was key to ending opposition in the Senate, as the Eight Amendment Bill was passed unanimously 21-0.

So, are we done, can we pass this f*cking thing yet?  Nope, because now it must go back to the House and be passed yet again.

Delaware politics from a liberal, progressive and Democratic perspective. Keep Delaware Blue.

  1. They should amend it so that anyone caught with a handgun in his carry-on luggage is thrown out of the General Assembly.

    Question? Anyone know how many legislators are actively carrying on a daily basis? If yes they are, why do we the citizens have to go through the cops, and surveilance upon entering OUR citizen owned buildings.
