DE: Age & Sex Discrimination, Illegal Record Keeping

A woman was denied "permission" to buy a .22 caliber pistol by the DE State Police during a State Police background check because of her age & gender. They also blamed the fact that after searching 7 years of their gun sales records they found she had never purchased a gun from a gun dealer in Delaware during that period (records which are illegal for them to maintain in the first place) so they ASSUMED it would have been her first gun purchase. Outrageous. The residents of Delaware should demand that the gun sales records being maintained by the State Police be destroyed, and those ultimately responsible for the records & this incident be fired.

H/T to David.
