Please SUPPORT both HB 878 and HB 962!
As a constituent I urge you to SUPPORT both HB 878 and 962: HB 878, Del. LaRock, requires that the chief law enforcement officer (CLEO) in a locality sign off on a Form 4, which acknowledges that the CLEO has been notified that a person is wishing to purchase a Class III firearm. The signature only tells the BATFE that the CLEO has been notified of the transaction and does not know of any reason for the transaction to be denied. The BATFE will do the complete background check and will be responsible to ultimately approve or deny the application. This bill provides equal protection under the law as some CLEOs refuse to sign such documents as a matter of policy, while other CLEOs sign them regularly. HB 962, Del. Cline, clarifies the current law in line with both an Attorney General's opinion and a ruling in a court case, that a person without a concealed handgun permit can store a loaded gun in a CLOSED, but not necessarily LOCKED, compartment or container in a vehicle or vessel. Please let me know how you are going to vote on these two bills.
