State of Delaware Archives: on Gun Control


Jack Markell: More troopers & more enforcement against gun crimes

Parents should not fear their children will be hit by stray bullets. Borrowing an idea from the Delaware State Troopers Association, we will make those who violate our laws fund efforts to reduce the incidence of gun violence. To this end, [my administration will] focus new resources, including additional state troopers, on reducing gun crimes, beginning in the City of Wilmington.

Chris Coons: Respect 2nd Amendment with common sense limitations

Q: Do you support restrictions on the purchase and possession of guns?

A: Yes.

Q: Do you believe that the Second Amendment guarantees the right of individual citizens to own guns?

A: Yes. Chris respects that the 2nd Amendment guarantees a person's right to keep and bear arms, subject to a few common sense limitations. Government should focus on strictly enforcing existing laws to protect public safety, rather than expanding gun regulations.
