Democrat gun bills clear Delaware Senate, head to House

DOVER, Del. (AP) — The Delaware Senate has approved Democratic proposals to outlaw high-capacity magazines and require anyone wanting to buy a handgun to first take a training course, be fingerprinted and obtain a permit from the state.

The bills passed the Democrat-controlled chamber Thursday with no GOP support. They now go to the Democrat-led House for consideration after the legislature's two-week Easter break.

Supporters of the proposals contend that they will help reduce gun homicides, suicides and violent crime.

Sen. Elizabeth Lockman, D-Wilmington, is the chief sponsor of the permit bill. She said it does not infringe on the right to own a gun and will "bolster a culture of responsible gun ownership and keep handguns away from criminals."
