Bump Stock Bill Vote Expected Today in DE House
June 14, 2018
Delaware House lawmakers are expected to take what may be the final vote today on a bill banning bump stocks, trigger cranks and similar devices that increase the rate of fire of semi-automatic firearms. Thursday’s scheduled vote comes after the Senate amended the bill last week to lower the penalty for a first offense of possessing a bump stock from a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in prison to a misdemeanor carrying a maximum six-month sentence. The change marked the eighth amendment to HB 300 since its introduction in December. The State House reconvenes today at 2pm.
