Second Amendment

Gun Restrictions Fail in Delaware Senate

Joe Biden and his double-barrelled shotgun have it under control


Attorney General Beau Biden suffered a stinging defeat Thursday on his final gun-control push in the state Senate, with just six senators backing a bill to force those with a dangerous mental illness to turn over their firearms.

The Senate also rejected, for the second time in two days, a proposed constitutional amendment backed by Biden that would have allowed judges to deny bail to any suspect charged with the most violent felonies. The bail amendment, which has failed in past sessions of the General Assembly, would have allowed a judge to deny bail for up to 90 days on the two highest classes of felonies, ranging from murder to burglary.
