DOVER, Del. (AP) - A bill expanding the ability of Delaware authorities to prohibit people with mental health issues from having guns has gone down to a stunning defeat in the state Senate.
Senators voted 13-to-6 Thursday to reject the measure, dealing a blow to Attorney General Beau Biden's office, which pushed for its passage. The legislation cleared the House with only one dissenting vote.
The bill was pulled from the Senate agenda Tuesday, but the chief sponsor said he was unaware of any problems prior to its defeat Thursday.
