    Judge T. Henley Graves Image from capegazette.com A year ago, the Bridgeport Rifle and Pistol Club filed suit against the state against the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control. The suit is designed to enforce Article 1, Section 20 of Delaware's Constitution. From ballotpedia.com: A person has the right to keep and bear arms for the defense of self, family, home and State, and for hunting and recreational use. The departments mentioned ban the possession of guns from public parks and state forests, unless the person is actually hunting with a valid hunting...

    There wasn’t any mystery about how Tuesday night’s five Republican presidential primaries would end up: in Donald Trump’s win column. The only thing to watch were his margins: Could he close out against John Kasich in certain highly educated, suburban congressional districts in Connecticut and Maryland, and could he break a 50 percent statewide winner-take-all threshold in Connecticut? Yes, he could! He could do all of that, and he did. He won every state by double digits and cruised in every congressional district awarding bound delegates. He made a joke of his competition and the #NeverTrump cause, just as he...

  • Parent Whines After School Sends Out Hilarious ‘Hurt Feelings Report’

    Daily Caller ^ | 2/19/16 | Blake Neff
    A school district in Delaware scrambled to apologize Wednesday for accidentally sending parents a humorous "hurt feelings report" sheet that appeared to make light of bullying. The sheet was sent as an email attachment to parents whose children attend Lombardy Elementary School in Wilmington. At first, the document looks almost indistinguishable from the various bureaucratic reporting forms used by the government across the country. But at a closer glance, the irreverent tone of the sheet quickly becomes apparent. The principal purpose of the document is "to assist whiners in documenting hurt feelings." Various fields to fill out include the "whiner’s...

    The Delaware State Constitution has an explicit protection for the right to keep and bear arms.  It was enacted in 1987.   A person has the right to keep and bear arms for the defense of self, family, home and State, and for hunting and recreational use.  Art. I, § 20 It seems that some public officials take their oath of office seriously.  In Lewes, Delaware, the city has a ban on the open carry of arms.  The legislature, when it passed  a comprehensive preemption statute, allowed ordinance that violated the statute to be grandfathered, if they existed before July...

    A cop who was injured following a shootout in the Bronx seems to still resent New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio´s recent support for the city´s protesters. NYPD officer Andrew Dossi was visited by Mayor de Blasio and Commissioner Bill Bratton at St. Barnabas Hospital Monday night after he and his partner were shot by robbers shortly at a grocery store after their shift ended Monday, and according to his father, the Mayor was not a welcome site. ´He wasn’t too happy about the Mayor’s visit,´ said Joe Dossi. This as the alleged gunman responsible for the attack has...

    Planned Parenthood abortionist Timothy Liveright, a former abortionist at Planned Parenthood of Delaware, has been hired by a new Planned Parenthood affiliate to do abortions. Liveright is the abortionist who, last year, reached a consent agreement with the Delaware Board of Licensure and Discipline to avoid losing his medical license over medical misconduct and filthy conditions at his abortion clinic. LifeNews previously reported on Liveright, who sang to one patient during her abortion, “Jesus, Ohhhhh Jesus, take the sinners down the river, Ohhhh Jesus.” Several medical emergencies at the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic he ran prompted three former clinic employees...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio was booed and heckled as he spoke to the city’s newest cops Monday morning. During a graduation ceremony for the latest class of graduates from the Police Academy, audience members shouted “Traitor!” as Hizzoner took the podium in Madison Square Garden. “You will confront all manner of problems … problems that you didn’t create,” de Blasio told the crowd. “You did!” someone yelled back, prompting laughter and applause. Earlier, de Blasio praised the new cops for “choosing what is a noble calling” and joining “the greatest and finest police department on this Earth.” He also said:

    Mayor de Blasio, his wife and NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton paid a sympathetic visit to loved ones of slain Officer Rafael Ramos on Monday, as the family prepared for the cop’s funeral. The mayor chatted with Ramos’s relatives on the family porch in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn, before stepping inside to visit more mourners for 30 minutes. The trio left without answering any questions from reporters outside, kept at a distance by NYPD guards. On his way out, de Blasio could be heard telling one of Ramos’s loved ones: “I’m sorry for your loss.” The family will hold a wake for...

    Retired NYPD members are discussing ways to keep New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio away from the funerals of recently-murdered NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu. One tactic, suggested in a popular law enforcement web forum, instructed officers to block the Mayor’s motorcade when it approached one of the funerals: All unions should reach out to their retired members. Use us to block this POS Mayor from attending these funerals. I don’t know if the fallen are from the City or not, but it shouldn’t matter. We can assemble en masse, and start a peaceful protest when his...

    My name is Jeff Spiegelman [not shown]. I am a representative in Delaware’s General Assembly. I am a longtime reader of your website. The anti-gun movement (which includes members of the House and Senate, as well as the Governor) is currently attempting to enact “safety” laws that would make Delaware one of the most gun-draconian states in the region. This package has six parts . . . 1. Assault weapons ban- Unwritten as of 3/25 2. Hi cap mag ban - “This bill would prohibit the manufacture, sale, purchase, transfer or delivery of large-capacity magazines, which are defined as ammunition...

    The Delaware Senate recently defeated Senate Bill 204, which would have continued to authorize the state-funded gun buyback program, Opposing Views reports. The bill was initially spearheaded by Sen. Robert Marshall (Dem), who wanted to create the Community Firearm Recovery Program. The program has allocated $200,000 tax dollars to the project for the next fiscal year. This is in addition to the $100,000 that the program has already spent towards purchasing privately owned civilian firearms. Marshall hoped to extend the program, which is slated to expire July 1. Evidently, the fact that the Delaware Senate had already put aside enough...

    In Delaware, carrying any knife — including a kitchen knife or a paring knife or anything other than a closed folding knife with a blade of 3 inches or shorter — concealed is a felony, even in your home, unless you have a concealed weapons license. 11 Del.

And 11 Del. Code § 222(5) defines “deadly weapon” to include...

    (Newser) – Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, and Delaware hold their Republican primaries today and while many observers have already heard the fat lady sing for Newt Gingrich, there may still be a twist or two left in the race. Gingrich has been spending a lot of time in Delware and he may be able to rally conservatives and jolt Mitt Romney by snatching a surprise primary win like the one Christine O'Donnell scored in 2010, Politico finds. Gingrich—who has had more penguin bites than primary wins since taking Georgia seven weeks ago—needs five wins to get on the...

    UPI ^ | April 22, 2012 | NICOLE DEBEVEC
    Mitt Romney is dominating in northeastern states conducting primaries Tuesday, particularly since Rick Santorum has left the race, observers note. Santorum, who announced he was suspending his campaign two weeks ago, had seen his once-huge lead in Pennsylvania shrink steadily and had said winning the Keystone State was key to his campaign continuing. That said, Romney was expected to claim a huge number of delegates from Delaware, Connecticut, New York and Rhode Island, even with Santorum in the race. Nothing's happened to change that expectation, except to possibly solidify it. RealClearPolitics.com's delegate count showed Romney with 656, Santorum with 272,...

    SMYRNA, Del - Authorities are searching for five suspects after an armed robbery ended with a shootout in the parking lot of the Fairways Inn bar and strip club in Smyrna early Saturday morning. Delaware State Police say the 52-year-old victim was walking to his car and carrying the night's proceeds from the business when a male suspect fired a shot at him. Police say the victim dropped the money while pulling his own gun and ran for cover behind several parked cars in the lot. They said the victim began shooting back at the male suspect. It was then,...

    Former Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell has re-entered the headlines. The Delaware native has recently announced that she has signed a book deal after her defeat in the Senate race last year. In that election, Miss O'Donnell polled 40% in a largely blue state. O'Donnell gained much traction with many conservatives last year after Mark Levin and other radio hosts endorsed her over Representative Mike Castle for the nomination. The primary in September gained national attention and saw O'Donnell beating Castle 53-47%. Now O'Donnell is back in the spotlight, saying that the White House had pegged her as the number one...
