Long Title:AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 11 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO THE DISPOSITION OF VALIDLY SEIZED WEAPONS AND AMMUNITION.
Synopsis:
This bill addresses the issues of weapons, specifically firearms, that have been relinquished by owners who are persons prohibited under 1448, Title 11 of the Delaware Code and by owners of firearms who have had a PFA Order issued against them. Currently, thousands of relinquished weapons are stored in evidence lockers of law enforcement agencies throughout the State. This bill will allow law enforcement to dispose of these firearms if, after sending written notice to the last known address of the owners of these firearms and giving them an opportunity to reclaim the weapon(s), the owners have failed to respond to the notice and 60 days has expired from the date the notice was sent. Law enforcement shall not dispose of a firearm during the pendency of a PFA Order, but may do so after expiration of the PFA order, if the owner has failed to reclaim the firearm within 60 days after notice with an opportunity to be heard has been sent to the owner’s last-known address.
