Yes,  they believe if we tear down all the Civil War memorials, then we can pretend it didn't happen and there was no slavery.  After all, history didn't   happen if you don't know about it, no does  it?

Radnor:   Nice letter but I disagree on carve outs for police, CCDW holders or anyone else.  Either we have rights or we don't. Carve outs only serve to divided us

Well...  Hoping if it is amended to come a little more to our side, it will be the poison pill to kill it.  Sorta like the amendments to Henry's Bill.
Someone said she was pissed and tabled the Bill.

Most people in todayís world are totally clueless about history . Except for what the news/tv/ social media wants the masses to know to start trouble and further an agenda.

Agree. Divide and conquer.  Only side is the incentive to get a CCDW permit.

I'm glad that someone else noticed the correlation between what is happening now & what happened almost exactly 100 years ago.

Then & (Now):
Moms are demanding that laws be enacted to protect their children from the evils of alcohol (guns).
Towns & even entire states are enacting bans on alcohol (guns).
Manufactures & sellers of alcohol (guns) are vilified and being called murderers.
Companies refuse to do business with alcohol (gun) manufacturers.
Politicians fight for a national ban on alcohol (guns). 

As we all know prohibition was an absolute & total failure.
Don't any of these people study history?
Why are they so bent on repeating one of the worst mistakes in American history?

An informative report on the status of the various gun control bill in Dover.

I read this as our efforts to contact the legislators and news outlets and show them we are opposed to these bills is working.  Not only do we need to keep up the pressure, we need to increase the pressure.

As part of this, I share with you a response from my Rep, Steve Smyk.  I am also working with Ernie Lopez, my Senator, on this.

We in Legislative Hall need you more than you need us.  I, as well as the majority of Sussex legislators, are one of the few on your side. Itís necessary for us to hear your thoughts. We need your support as the Progressive Liberals are sending an onslaught of false information for public consumption. Through this they have encouraged a public writing campaign in the news media. These efforts can only be combatted by letters like yours to me, other law makers and to the editorial pages of papers.
Please, continue to educate others with your understanding. Contact anyone you believe can assist in public understanding.
Iíd like to thank you personally for allowing me to support your position.  We are on the correct side of the law and the constitutional understandings and interpretations of same by our highest courts.
Keep up your diligence.

Steve Smyk

Steve is asking for help from ALL of us.  We need to increase the pressure to keep our rights.  Let's get rolling and overwhelm them with letters and comments.  It's a CALL TO Action we cannot afford to ignore.

Actually received a reply....  WHOOT WHOOT!

Sent this most recently.

Dear Mr. Mitchell,
(CC: Sen Delcollo)

I've sent several emails to you expressing my opposition to the ANTI GUN BILLS and ended them "Looking forward to your reply".
I am STILL waiting on your reply.

So, here is a new question for you....  Do you IGNORE all of the people in YOUR VOTING district?

Below are 2 of the emails I am waiting for your reply on.


Hope this finds you well.
I do not believe this Bill is significantly different than 1456.

But, what you could amend this Bill with is an affirmative defense if a firearm is stolen
from a locked vehicle.  Since we cannot have a firearm in certain places we'd have to
store it temporarily out of sight in a vehicle.
Looking forward to your reply.  Also, still waiting for your reply to my email RE: magazine ban.
(I'm sure I will get a reply from Rep. Spiegelman.  I usually do and he's not my Representative UNFORTUNATELY).


I am requesting you do NOT sponsor, cosponsor, or vote in favor of ANY anti gun related Bills.

I would like you to take the time to answer a question, why is there an exclusion for active AND RETIRED police?

Why is there a need for the police active or retired police to have more than 10 rounds?  Please explain why there is an exclusion for YOURSELF (retired police) and not me.

Looking forward to your reply.



Good job last night!

When they said about you 5 years ago, wanted to shout out "CAMPING WITH HIS BOY SCOUT TROOP!"
But time flies....  That was a little more than 5 years ago.


Mitchell's reply:
Good Afternoon Mr. Radnor,

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on this topic. I am receiving quite a bit of feedback from constituents on this bill and doing my best to respond to all of it, so I apologize for the delay in getting back to you.

In regards to your question on the exemption for active and retired law enforcement officers: Retired law enforcement officers are still required to go through the same yearly background check, and are also required to satisfactorily pass an intense firearm qualification yearly with standards established by the Council on Police Training. Essentially, they have the same standards as active law enforcement officers. I would also like to point out that law enforcement officers have arrested many people, and some of those people still carry grudges once they are released from correctional facilities.

I hope this explains my perspective on the issue. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

Thank you,

J. Larry Mitchell
State Representative


Dear Mr. Mitchell,

Then is should state those RETIRED officers who are authorized to carry under HB218.

I think it should have a provision to allow CCDW holders to be exempt.  As we go through background checks to keep our permits.  Plus, I'm sure if my name came across as being a criminal, the court would pull my permit.  In addition, I train WEEKLY and through the course of the year am willing to bet I expend far more rounds then those qualifying under the LEOSA act.

Yes, throughout their careers they may have put many have arrested many criminals.  These are the SAME criminal who  have no regard for the law we law-abiding citizens may have to encounter.  Those issued CCDW permits are some of the most LAW-ABIDING citizens around.  They took the time to train and meet all of the requirements to obtain the permit, they WILL NOT do anything to jeopardize it.

Looking forward to your reply.
