SYNOPSIS

This Act replaces Senate Bill No. 69 (150th General Assembly) and does the following:

(1) Creates an application process to obtain a handgun qualified purchaser card, to authorize the purchase of a handgun, or a firearms qualified purchaser card, to authorize the purchase of firearms other than a handgun. Like Senate Bill No. 69, this Act then requires licensed importers, manufacturers, or dealers, as well as unlicensed persons, to require an individual to present the individual's handgun qualified purchaser card or firearms qualified purchaser card before selling or transferring a firearm to an individual.

(2) Requires that an applicant complete a firearms training course within 2 years before the date of application, similar to what is required by Delaware’s concealed carry permit law.

(3) Sends to law-enforcement information that is already collected at the time of sale and required under federal law to be made available to law-enforcement. This change assists law-enforcement in the criminal investigations they already conduct.

This Act differs from Senate Bill No. 69 in the following ways:

(1) It makes clear that § 904A of Title 24 is not intended to prohibit law-enforcement officials from keeping records of sales and transfers of firearms for their use during criminal investigations or prosecutions.

(2) It exempts individuals licensed to carry a concealed deadly weapon from the requirements under this Act to complete a firearms training course. Individuals licensed to carry a concealed deadly weapon must already complete a firearms training course to be licensed.

Finally, this Act makes technical corrections to conform existing law to the standards of the Delaware Legislative Drafting Manual.
