This Ennis sponsored bill in the Delaware Senate seem innocuous at first glance. After all, we are simply adding this line into the charges of a felony. ..

1447A Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony

This is in a list of felonies including some like Murder in the first degree, which if one is convicted upon having two prior offenses, one is deemed a habitual criminal and put away for life.

I question this because it put all those who carry guns as a normal recourse, in danger. If one is driving down Route 1, and through no fault of one’s own an accident occurs in which one is charged with two counts of manslaughter… then just simply having a firearm in your car, makes it the third count, and presto, you are in jail for life.

There are more important criminals who need to be in jail for life, than some farmer from Sussex or Kent County.  There is not enough room for both of them.

If you like guns, and the 2nd Amendment, this bill is dangerous to all gun carriers and needs to be shot down.

Perhaps an amendment is in order.
