Bill Signing – House Substitute 1 for House Bill 222 6/27/2018
Governor John Carney signed House Substitute 1 for House Bill 222. This legislation, sponsored by Representative David Bentz, allows a court to issue a lethal violence protection order where a family member or law enforcement officer can show that the respondent poses a danger to self or others by owning, possessing, controlling, purchasing or receiving a firearm. This bill is the latest in a package of gun safety measures Governor Carney has signed into law this legislative session, including the Beau Biden Gun Violence Prevention Act, toughening penalties around straw purchases, and banning “bump stocks” in the state.
