Delaware has no laws specifically regulating gun shows.

Delaware requires private sellers (sellers who are not federally licensed dealers) to have a background check conducted on a prospective purchaser before transferring any firearm, whether at gun shows or elsewhere. See the Private Sales in Delaware section for further information, including additional laws that may apply at gun shows.
