DOVER, Del. (AP) — Democratic lawmakers in Delaware have introduced two gun-control bills that outlaw high-capacity magazines and ban the purchase of handguns unless the buyer first undergoes a firearms training course, gets fingerprinted and obtains a state permit.

The permit bill introduced Thursday requires a person wanting to buy a handgun to complete an approved training course within five years of applying for the state permit. Applicants would be fingerprinted and issued a “qualified purchaser card” good for 180 days if deemed eligible.

The second bill bans the sale and possession of magazines capable of holding more than 17 rounds.
