DOVER, Del. (AP) - A bill that would prohibit gun ownership by some mental health patients and criminals has been introduced in Delaware.
A statement issued by Gov. John Carney says he joined state legislators Tuesday in announcing the Beau Biden Gun Violence Prevention Act. Rep. David Bentz introduced the bill, similar to one proposed in 2013 by then-Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden.
Biden, son of former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, died in 2015 after battling brain cancer.
