Lincoln, Nebraska Mayor Working On Another Anti-Gun Proposal!

Friday, July 28, 2006

 

On July 24, in a surprise move, the Lincoln City Council voted 5-2 to withdraw Mayor Coleen Seng’s (D) proposal (06-107) to ban concealed handguns within city limits.  The 5-2 vote makes it unlikely that it will come back up at a later time. 

Unfortunately, Mayor Seng has not given up! 

At the next city council meeting Mayor Seng will be discussing another proposal that would make it illegal for a Nebraska RTC permit holder to conceal his or her firearm within the city limits by re-classifying certain offenses to prohibit concealed carry. 

Mayor Seng seems to have the support of Councilman Svoboda, and Councilman Cook.  The position of the other 5 members is not known at this time. 

It is critical that all NRA members contact the Lincoln City Council to voice their opposition to any proposed ordinance that goes beyond the new concealed carry law. 

Members should voice their support for the right of law-abiding citizens, who possess a RTC permit to carry a concealed firearm in the city of Lincoln within the framework of the new state law. 

If passed, the ordinance could create a patchwork system of laws and regulations in each city and town throughout Nebraska regulating who is qualified to carry or possess a firearm and whether or not RTC is even allowed within the city limits. 

It is important that Council members recognize the importance of a uniform statewide system of concealed carry. 

Please contact the City Council members at (402) 441-7515 and thank them for withdrawing anti-gun proposal 06-107 and ask them to continue to oppose any attempt to infringe on their citizen’s Right-to-Carry.
