Anti-Gun Proposals Introduced by Lincoln, Nebraska Mayor

Friday, August 11, 2006

 

At the August 7, city council meeting, Mayor Coleen Seng (D) introduced two proposals that will greatly affect law-abiding gun owner’s right to keep and bear arms. 

The Mayor’s first proposal, 06-140, would make it illegal for some citizens to own a firearm within the city limits by re-classifying certain misdemeanor offenses to “serious misdemeanor” offenses.  The second proposal, 06-141, would make it illegal for all Right-to-Carry permit holders to carry their firearm in the City of Lincoln, or Lancaster County facilities. 

These proposals are on the schedule for a public hearing at the August 14 City Council meeting. 

It is critical that NRA members attend the August 14 meeting, and contact the Lincoln City Council to voice their opposition to these anti-gun proposals. 

If passed, these proposals 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 Right-to-Carry 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 ask them to oppose proposals 06-140 and 06-141, along with continuing to oppose any attempt to infringe on their citizen’s Right-to-Carry. 

Again, the City Council meeting will be held on August 14, at 1:30 p. m., at the County-City Building, located at 555 S. 10th Street, Lincoln, 68508.  For further contact information on each of the council members, please use the following link: http://www.ci.lincoln.ne.us/city/council/lista.htm.
