State to issue regulations on concealed firearms in parks, forests


The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control and the Delaware Department of Agriculture  plan to issue interim firearm regulations early next week.

The regulations come after the Delaware Supreme Court repealed a  firearms ban.

The state anticipates that the interim regulations would prohibit firearms in certain public facilities and designated areas – including park offices, visitors’ centers, bathhouses, zoos, educational facilities, dormitories, group camping areas, swimming pools, guarded beaches, stadiums and water parks.

In addition, the regulations would allow holders of valid Delaware concealed carry permits to carry within parks, including designated areas. The regulations would further allow active-duty law enforcement officers and qualified retired officers to carry anywhere within the parks and other areas affected by Supreme Court decision.
