DOVER — The Senate pushed to today a vote that could extend the length of time for a background check before someone can purchase a gun in Delaware. The bill in question was on the agenda for Wednesday, but after a lengthy discussion on a proposal moving the start of school back, the bill was bumped to Thursday.
The measure, which would require individuals buying a gun wait longer if a background check is not completed within three days, passed the House in April.
The main floor action came on the bill changing the start of the school year, with senators voting 11-10 to move the first day of school for all Delaware districts to after Labor Day.
According to a study from the Virginia Hospitality & Travel Association, Virginia would lose $369 million if its schools were not required to begin after Labor Day.
