The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) this week filed a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Delaware’s new ban on so-called “assault weapons” on the grounds the legislation — House Bill 450 — violates the Second Amendment. The lawsuit is named Gray et. al. v. Jennings. Joining SAF in this legal action are the Firearms Policy Coalition, DJJAMS LLC (Delaware gun dealer), and two private citizens, Gabriel Gray and William Taylor. Named as a defendant is Delaware Attorney General Kathy Jennings. The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware.
The oppressive new Delaware statute, House Bill 450, lists dozens of firearms described generically as “assault long guns” and 19 handguns described as “assault pistols,” plus so-called “copycat” firearms. Those who acquire such arms or bring them into Delaware can be charged with a Class D felony, punishable by up to eight years in prison.
Among the listed banned rifles are popular semi-auto firearms used in Service Rifle and Vintage Sniper Team competitions: Springfield M1A, Colt AR-15, FN FAL, HK 91/93/94, Ruger Mini-14 (folding), SKS, Steyr AUG, Valmet M76/78 and dozens more. READ House Bill 450 Full Text (PDF)
