March 15, 2018 AT 9:40 AM

The General Assembly advanced four gun control bills Wednesday, just hours after students walked out of schools across Delaware in protest of gun violence.

The legislation includes proposals to ban bump stocks, enact harsher penalties for "straw" purchases, raise the legal age at which someone can buy a rifle and allow police to temporarily take guns away from someone deemed a danger to themselves and others.

All four measures were moved out of committee and could come up for a vote in the full House or Senate as early as Thursday.
