Looks Like Delaware Will Join the "Shall Issue" States

The News Journal - Bill relaxes concealed gun permits. Currently you must demonstrate "a compelling need." Self-defense, even if you are an abused spouse with a restraining order in place is usually not enough "need."
Legislation to make it easier for law-abiding Delawareans to obtain permits to carry concealed handguns was introduced Tuesday in the state House -- with enough sponsors to guarantee its passage in both chambers.
In most "May Issue" states, women and minorities frequently have trouble demonstrating the "need" to defend themselves in front of old, white sheriffs or judges - who usually have final say.
