    Delaware laws are totally different. I open carry in DE. My boyfriend has a record long before we got together. He has not been in any type of trouble since the original issue. Long story short, before purchasing my 1st firearm, I did some research, spoke to several LEOs and a couple lawyers. As long as he has zero access AND the firearms are locked up and he can not unlock them, I can have them. As I stated earlier, I currently open carry... doing so has saved my life twice!!

    I'll join Grapeshot in his welcome and again note that "in the vicinity of" is not part of 18 U.S.C. § 922 and "vicinity" is a meaningless term, it could be 2 inches or 20 miles depending on context.

    18 USC 922(g) It shall be unlawful for any person—(9) who has been convicted in any court of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence, to ship or transport in interstate or foreign commerce, or possess in or affecting commerce, any firearm or ammunition; or to receive any firearm or ammunition which has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce.
    Not knowing what Delaware law says, per the federal law the possession of a ghost gun would be legal.

    I'm surprised at you. "Ghost gun" indeed; that's the same misdirection the liberals are using to label any semiautomatic rifle with cosmetic features an "assault weapon". A "ghost gun" is nothing more than a legally made firearm for personal use that need not bear a serial number or other markings. Let's not let the liberals define things they way they want them to be rather than the way they are.
    I'll bet there isn't even a federal nor state definition as to what a "ghost gun" is... since it doesn't exist.

    I hope you are not on blood pressure medicine. What have I always said? Definition, definition, definition. Federal law says that a firearm that traveled in commerce has to have a serial number. A ghost gun has not traveled in interstate commerce.

    As you say... definition, definition, definition, and there is none.
    "... per the federal law the possession of a ghost gun would be legal..." There ain't no such animal as a 'ghost gun' at least according to federal law; it's not a term defined in any federal code. If you disagree, fine, then cite the law that says ghost guns are legal.


    Don't let the enemy define terms, they will always do it to their advantage just as they did with "Saturday Night Special", "Assault Pistol", "Assault Weapon" and anything else they were allowed to define.

    Laws are generally passed to restrict, not authorize, particular conditions.

    The absence of a restriction applying, makes it legal.

    You're quite right, Grape, I retract and restate.
    "Cite the law that defines what a "ghost gun" is. As I said there ain' no such animal.

    This "ghost gun" bullcrap is the same sort of firearm that has existed since the founding of this country, but with a new, more scary appellation given to it by the liberals that believe in emotion over substance.

    Definitions, indeed: you posted it above, but failed to read it.

    18 USC 922(g) It shall be unlawful for any person—(9) who has been convicted in any court of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence, to ship or transport in interstate or foreign commerce, or possess in or affecting commerce, any firearm or ammunition; or to receive any firearm or ammunition which has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce.
    If you haven't kept up with the state of jurisprudence since 1942, the federal position, confirmed by SCOTUS, that everything "affects" interstate commerce, and is thus subject to federal control.

    If you dig your own ore, process it in your own smelter, and make a gun out of it using absolutely no raw materials or tools that you didn't create from your own land, that means you didn't buy it on the open market, and therefore you "affected" interstate commerce.

    It is ridiculous, but it is the current status of "interstate commerce".

    I suggest you read United States v. Lopez, 514 U.S. 549 (1995)
    The possession of a gun in a local school zone is not an economic activity that might, through repetition elsewhere, have a substantial effect on interstate commerce. The law is a criminal statute that has nothing to do with "commerce" or any sort of economic activity.

    It is irreverent that the materials to make the gun traveled in interstate commerce.

    Your suggestion makes it very clear that you did NOT read Lopez. The Lopez court, in great detail, explained why Wickard did not apply.

    So, I request you explain how Wickard, contrary to theLopez decision, negates Lopez.

    "ghost gun" - No results matched the search criteria

    http://uscode.house.gov/search.xhtml...5D%7C%5B%3A%5D

    "gun" - Showing results 1-56 of 56

    http://uscode.house.gov/search.xhtml...5D%7C%5B%3A%5D

    Making your own gun from your own stuff substantially affects interstate commerce because you did not pay a tax on materials and labor as would a direct or second hand retail gun sale.

    Bottom line...make your own stuff for your own consumption...nope, not gunna allow that aberrant anti-social behavior!!! Dang those uppity mere citizens!

    In with G-men SWAT...BREACH!!!
