DOVER, Del. (AP) - A House committee is resuming consideration of bill expanding criminal background checks for gun purchases in Delaware to cover sales between private sellers and buyers.

The Judiciary Committee was to resume a hearing Wednesday after it ran out of time last week with opponents still waiting to speak against the bill.

The legislation is part of a gun control package proposed by Gov. Jack Markell after the December massacre at a Connecticut elementary school.

Eastern Shore Delegate Mike McDermott is proposing a three pronged approach to school safety in the wake of the shootings at a Connecticut Elementary school late last year.

The measures would allow teachers and other staff members to carry guns as long as those teachers are trained.

In addition, it would allow select school staff to carry Tasers as well as allow on-and-off duty police officers to be armed while on school grounds.

If the Maryland Republican’s measures are approved schools would be allowed to decide which measures work best for them.

DOVER, Del. (AP) - A federal judge's ruling upholding restrictions on guns in Delaware public housing is being challenged.

The judge last month ruled that the Wilmington Housing Authority could prohibit residents from possessing guns in common areas except when they are taking firearms to or from their living quarters.

Two plaintiffs who challenged the restrictions filed notice Monday that they are appealing the ruling.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland can continue enforcing its gun permit law requiring residents to show a "good and substantial reason" to carry handguns until a federal appeals court decides the matter.

The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond granted a stay in the case on Wednesday. That's after a federal judge decided to lift a stay on his finding that the state's law was unconstitutional.

The court has directed that the case be expedited and tentatively scheduled for arguments in October.
