After months of debate, House Bill #300 with its many amendments passed the House today and will go to Delaware Governor John Carney for signature. I expect he will waste no time signing this huge legislation.
This bill makes it a crime to sell, transfer, buy, receive or possess a trigger crank or bump-fire device designed to accelerate the rate of fire of a semiautomatic rifle, making such weapon function more like an automatic weapon. A bump stock was used by the gunman in Las Vegas in October 2017. Violation of this provision is a Class E felony.

Updated: Only two State Representatives voted no- Richard Collins and Michael Mulrooney. Representative Charles Postles did not vote and Reps. David Bentz and Deb Heffernan were absent.
Update #2: It looks like Senate Bill #163, the assault weapons ban, will get a full Senate Vote. Blue Delaware is reporting he will ask for this to be heard in the Delaware Senate on Tuesday which would require a suspension of rules. Last week, the bill was not released from committee.
