    The Truth About Guns ^ | 26 March 2013 | Jeff Spiegelman
    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. Code § 1442 provides, A person is guilty of carrying a concealed deadly weapon when the person carries concealed a deadly weapon upon or about the person without a license to do so as provided by § 1441 of this title.

    (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...

    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,...

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.

    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...

    Christine O'Donnell and her victorious opponent in the Delaware senate race, Democrat Chris Coons, campaigned fiercely against each other during the midterms. But now they've buried the hatchet, quite literally. The Tea Party darling and the senator-elect buried a hatchet — actually, they put a small ax in a box of sand — in the southern Delaware hamlet of Georgetown on Thursday, the AP reported (via The Huffington Post) in line with a time-honored state tradition. As policies of Delaware state politics dictate, the senate race contenders took part in a ceremonial horse-drawn carriage and classic car parade, which preceded...

But the exit polls lay out the political and demographic roadblocks facing any Tea Party favorite here. [Snip] If GOP voters are feeling any buyer's remorse, they may take some solace in one surprising stat: despite pre-election polls that showed longtime Republican Rep. Mike Castle handily beating Coons in a hypothetical matchup, the voters who turned...

Yet there’s a real flaw with this argument. Depending on when O’Donnell created her LinkedIn profile, at one point you could only enter educational programs that were in the LinkedIn system. And even today, you have to hard-code in the text for places like Claremont, which are not recognized Institutions or Companies, but exist only as search terms in their...

    Republican Christine O’Donnell claims to have raised $2.6 million in her longshot race to represent Delaware in the U.S. Senate. The DSCC evidently believes that she must be taken seriously. They’ve just purchased another $165,000 in airtime against her, according to FEC reports, bringing their total so far to $272,000. So if you count Delaware, Pennsylvania ($3M), and Missouri ($1.5M), the DSCC has split about two-thirds of its expenditures so far between races it probably cannot win and races it supposedly cannot lose.

Republican leaders say an O’Donnell victory would destroy the state party and pretty much ruin any GOP chances of capturing Biden’s old seat. “I have no doubt if she by some miracle became the nominee she would lose the seat by unprecedented numbers,” the Chairman of the Delaware Republican Party, Tom...

    Like any other conservative running in 2010, Christine O'Donnell hopes that a November 2 victory signals the end of a damaging era in American Politics. For Christine; however, there is an added weight to the occasion. . .she would be the winner of an open race that could throw the Democrat's plans for a lame-duck counteroffensive into a tailspin. Christine is running for Vice President Joe Biden's open Senate seat in Delaware. Because Biden has vacated his term, her reign as Republican Senator would begin immediately on November 3 and the Senate make-up now at 59 Democrats, generally filibuster proof,...

    WILMINGTON, Del. -- For supporters of Rep. Mike Castle (R-Del.), all eyes will be on Delaware's New Castle County Tuesday where the level of turnout in the state's contested GOP Senate primary could make or break the longtime congressman. New Castle County houses the urban population centers of Delaware. It contains Newark and Wilmington, the state's largest city.  The Castle campaign is hoping for solid turnout Tuesday in and around Wilmington to help the centrist congressman offset more conservative primary-goers in the southern part of the state who may be backing Tea Party favorite Christine O'Donnell.  O'Donnell is banking on...

    As this Ruling Class versus Country Class battle picks up speed, two interesting developments in the Castle-O'Donnell Delaware donnybrook, written about nearby. Yesterday, the Country Class Sarah Palin went on the Country Class Sean Hannity Show to endorse the Country Class Christine O' Donnell over the Ruling Class Mike Castle in the Delaware U.S. Senate primary. And thus far, the Ruling Class Castle has refused to accept an invitation from the Country Class Mark Levin Show to discuss his Senate race. Both moments are clues to the status of different players in the increasingly vehement rebellion that every poll in...

    Tea party favorite Christine O’Donnell is seeking the GOP nomination for the Senate seat formerly held by Joe Biden in Delaware, and she tells Newsmax we “absolutely” must extend or make permanent the Bush tax cuts set to expire in January. [Snip] O’Donnell notes that Castle was one of the few Republicans who voted for cap-and-trade legislation. “He’s voted with Barack Obama on just about every major bill, and cap and trade seems to be the one voters are most concerned about. Because whether it’s a farmer or a small business owner or a senior citizen, everyone is concerned about...

    As many of you know who read my blog, I am no fan of Senator John McCain. A man who has sold his principles one too many times to ingratiate himself with the beltway and media. But when it comes to Representative Mike Castle, he makes McCain look like another Jim DeMint. Supporting the DISCLOSE Act, Cap and Trade, as well as being against the repeal of Obamacare does not spell out republican to me: He is a liberal. I decided to look at Castle’s record in the House to see if he at least votes for republican issues 80%...

    Republican Rep. Mike Castle of Delaware appears well positioned to win next Tuesday's GOP Senate primary and run a competitive campaign for the seat Vice President Joe Biden occupied for 36 years. He has millions of dollars in his campaign coffers, support from the Republican establishment and a tidal wave of national public opinion swinging in his favor. Recent statewide polls put him well ahead of his opponent, Christine O'Donnell. But appearances can be deceiving, especially when the Tea Party Express throws its weight behind a primary challenger, as the case of felled Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski showed last month....

    Four States Can Stop Lame Duck Threat Posted on 31 July 2010. Illinois Governor Pat Quinn made it official: Illinois will have a special Senate election just for the lame duck session. Thus Illinois joins Delaware and West Virginia (both having special elections) as the three states whose winners on election day will—barring a disputed election result—be seated for a lame duck session in December. A fourth, Colorado, is less clear but may also be in play. The lame duck session looks increasingly likely—and increasingly ambitious. Sen. Kerry continues to stress that cap-and-trade will be on the agenda, and Sen....

    On May 5, five students at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif., were sent home for wearing clothing featuring the American flag. Their offense: trespassing on Mexican heritage during Cinco de Mayo. Administrators called the flag-wearing "incendiary" and likely to cause violence. The school district overrode the decision, and the boys were allowed to return to school. In response yesterday, about 200 students staged a walkout carrying Mexican flags. The question is: Who taught these kids to hate America so much?

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has ordered a “bureaucratic” halt for approving new building in some areas of Jerusalem that the Palestinian Authority demands as part of a new Arab state within Israel’s current borders. The Prime Minister rejected the reports, saying that building in Jerusalem would continue and "we will continue to stand on our essential principles," but foreign media quoted Israeli sources that Jerusalem city officials been told to hold up processing building requests.
