DOVER, Del. - Lawmakers are set to vote on two separate bills that would increase penalties for people prohibited from owning deadly weapons.
According to the Delaware House of Representatives, Tuesday ended without votes to two firearm bills.
One bill, introduced by Rep. Ruth Briggs-King (R), would increase penalties for people that are not only prohibited from possessing a gun, but also go on to actually use that gun. The second bill deals with increasing penalties for only possessing a gun in violation of the law, even if it is not used to commit a crime.
The bill will be back on Wednesday's agenda.
