AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 11 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO PROHIBITED CONDUCT IN CONNECTION WITH LARGE-CAPACITY MAGAZINES.
This Act prohibits the manufacture, sale, purchase, transfer, or delivery of large-capacity magazines, which are defined as ammunition feeding devices with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds. In acknowledgment that thousands of law-abiding Delawareans currently possess large-capacity magazines lawfully, this Act makes such possession unlawful only if it occurs in a public place while in possession of a firearm capable of accepting it. Possession of a large-capacity magazine in areas that are not public places remains legal and this Act permits the possession and use of large-capacity magazines at shooting ranges. A violation of this Act is a class A misdemeanor for a first offense and a class G felony for any subsequent offense.
Takes effect upon being signed into law
