The Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hear Legislative Bill 390 (LB 390), introduced by state Senator Mark Christensen (44), on Thursday, February 28 at 1:30 p.m.  LB 390 is important “emergency powers” legislation that would ensure your right to self-defense is not infringed upon by the government during a declared state of emergency.

Specifically, LB 390 would prohibit the state or any government agency, during a declared state of emergency, from prohibiting or restricting the otherwise lawful possession, use, carrying, transfer, transportation, storage or display of a firearm or ammunition; seizure or confiscation of a lawfully possessed firearm; or requiring registration of a firearm or ammunition for which registration is not otherwise required by law.

This legislation would protect law-abiding citizens in Nebraska from a violation of their constitutional rights reminiscent of what occurred in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, where law-abiding citizens were stripped of their lawfully owned firearms by overzealous government officials leaving them defenseless and unable to protect their families and property.

LD 390 is essential for law-abiding gun owners of the Cornhusker State.  If your state Senator serves on the Judiciary Committee, please urge him or her to SUPPORT LD 390.  Please click here to identify your state Senator.  The members of the Judiciary Committee are listed below:
