Gun-Rights Group Challenges Delaware’s High-Capacity Magazine Ban

FILE - In this March 15, 2020 file photo people wait in a line to enter a gun store in Culver City, Calif. The man who shot and killed four people this week at a Tulsa, Okla., hospital bought his AR-style semiautomatic rifle just hours before he began the killing spree. That would not have been possible in Washington and a half dozen other states that have waiting periods of days or even more than a week before people can take possession of such weapons.

  • A gun-rights advocacy group called the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) filed a lawsuit against Delaware’s high-capacity magazine ban Thursday evening, saying the law violates the Constitution.
  • The lawsuit challenges Delaware’s high-capacity magazine ban under Senate Bill 6 (SB 6), and asks the court to pass a declaratory judgment that renders the law, and all related regulations, unconstitutional, according to the lawsuit.
  • The lawsuit joins two other lawsuits filed in June 2022 by the Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) and two private citizens.
