evidently there was a protest, both pro and anti recently. looks like on leg hall. moms vs pro2a.
2 of the salisbury stations had links posted. not sure of if any of the delaware outlets had any coverage. i haven't actively looked.
recent events throw a little shade on some of this stuff. at least offering some resistance the the criminalizing of mags. cali had a stay issued, then 1/2 & 1/2 issued/stayed, on criminalization of mags. the judges ruling was VERY INTERESTING to say the least, and definitely worth a read if you have the time.. 84 pages though. but the judges points are very pro 2a! a number of sites had links to this, if you haven't seen it yet.
banning/criminalizing existing firearms could encounter something like the judge above. MAYBE.
i don't think, based on the fact that other states are going full speed ahead, there is much to prevent the registration or new stuff ban from going in place. nj ny md hi ca etc all have similar stuff. and no court has stepped in.
it's a shame. not sure where i would go if i ever make it to retirement, but if this stuff passes, going home AND not being a criminal is ruled out.
for those interested, there is a section on the mdshooters.com site that discusses politics. obviously its mixed in with more maryland specific activity, a bit of national stuff and other banter. it may be worth a check if you are interested.
the group from md, called the Patriots Picket (PP), is going with a "we will not comply" push. it delaware group from the protest above was joining in. a number of folks had home made stickets/patches pinned to their cloths. as i understand it, PP IS NOT part of the web site above, but their members post stuff there around events.

Senate Bill 68 seeks to outright ban the possession, purchase, manufacture, or sale of the most commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms in Delaware with limited exceptions. These firearms are popularly owned and used for self-defense, target shooting and hunting. This legislation was also introduced last year at the behest of Governor Carney and relentlessly pushed by anti-gun legislators. Thankfully, it failed in 2018 after NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters continuously urged their lawmakers to oppose it. This year, NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters will need to continue contacting their legislators if they want to repeat the same success.
Senate Bill 69 would impose a requirement that individuals obtain training and a permit in order to purchase a firearm in Delaware. Not only does this place another arbitrary hurdle on what is a Constitutionally-guaranteed right, it is a dangerous practice that could slow an individual’s ability to purchase a firearm for self-defense when they need it most. SB 69 is an egregious attempt to create more avenues to deny someone their Second Amendment rights, including discriminating against those who are financially less fortunate.
Senate Bill 70 would outright ban the possession, purchase, sale, and manufacture, of any magazine that can hold more than 15 rounds of ammunition. Further, all currently covered magazines would need to be relinquished by June 30, 2020. Legislation like this only affects law-abiding gun owners, because criminals will not abide by it. These bills prevent gun owners from being able to defend themselves using the most effective means possible.
