We need your help IMMEDIATELY to kill this bill.
Under the typical guise of “mental health checks,” HB-88 sounds reasonable, but in reality it’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Once you dig below the talking points and liberal PR campaign, you’ll find that HB-88 is the most anti-gun bill of the year, threatening all law-abiding citizens and our veterans.
This bill will allow the government to rapidly expand mental illness definitions.
Markell and his friends believe that if they can just monitor the thoughts of all Delawareans and take all guns from those that they deem “too risky” they will end all gun violence.
Seriously. They think this.
Can you imagine the cost associated with building a Delaware thought police bureaucracy?
Will the new army of thought monitoring bureaucrats have to go through “mental health checks?”
And if these politicians are able to slam through this bill what do you think will stop them from monitoring citizen mental health records for purposes unrelated to guns in the future?
House Bill 88 will open the flood gates for government use of “mental health checks” for a plethora of liberty shredding initiatives.
Just the idea that the government would now have the authority to deny you something based on your thoughts is chilling.
HB-88 will force all levels of health care professionals to report the most minor of comments and thoughts to the State for the purpose of firearms confiscation.
In essence, HB-88 makes your healthcare provider a state sanctioned tattle-tail.
This isn’t a joke. What your healthcare provider reports to the State of Delaware under HB-88 could mean that the police come and take your guns and ammo.
The most personal healthcare information you or loved ones might have will be handed over to government bureaucrats hungry to find any excuse for a law abiding citizen not to have a gun.
HB-88 is an all out assault on your right to the confidentiality of your personal health records.
The bill also provides for INVOLUNTARY detainment and hospitalization, including FULL IMMUNITY to health facilities if they comply and give confidential medical information to law enforcement.
There is no doubt that a deal was made behind closed doors to move this bill from the House to the Senate. Special interests and lobbyists have everything to gain if this bill becomes law.
Sadly, most legislators haven’t even read the bill.
That’s why it’s up to us to call our legislators, demand they vote NO on House Bill 88, and remind them that how they vote now will impact their chances at re-election later.
Please call the following Senators on the Judiciary Committee and tell them to vote NO on HOUSE BILL 88:
We only need 3 of these Senators to vote NO on HB-88 to kill the bill, please call today!
“The Department of Justice, the Courts, the Delaware State Police, DELJIS, the Delaware State Bureau of Identification, the Department of Health and Social Services and any other necessary agency as may be determined by the Governor, may develop appropriate regulations to carry out the purposes of this Act.“
In other words, Jack Markell can grow his government ranks with as many regulations as he wishes and will employ as many bureaucrats as he wants to exploit this new legal weapon.
***The legislative session ends in June so the gun grabbers in Dover are working double time to pound through as many 2nd Amendment shredding bills as possible.***
