Nebraska - Cities Of Lincoln And Kearny Consider Gun Measures Next Week

Friday, August 18, 2006

Lincoln Anti-Gun Ordinances Scheduled For Vote August 21
Lincoln Mayor Seng’s (D) two proposed anti-gun ordinances will be voted on by the City Council at the Monday, August 21 meeting.  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, and 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.  

It is critical that NRA members attend the August 21 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, and to continue to oppose any attempt to infringe on their citizens’ Right-to-Carry.  Again, the City Council meeting will be held on August 21, 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.  To view proposal 06-140, please visit: www.lincoln.ne.gov/city/council/agenda/2006/080706/06140.pdf.  To view proposal 06-141 please, visit:  www.lincoln.ne.gov/city/council/agenda/2006/080706/06141.pdf.

 

Kearny Right-To-Carry Public Hearing August 22
In addition, On August 22, the Kearny City Council is holding a public hearing to discuss lifting its current ban on carrying concealed firearms within the city limits.  We are encouraging all NRA members to attend this hearing and voice their support for lifting Kearny’s current ban on carrying concealed firearms and bring Kearny in line with current state law.  The meeting will be held on August 22, at 7:00 p.m., in the City Council Chambers, located at 18 East 22nd Street (City Council meetings are also televised live on Cable Channel 6).  If you are unable to attend the hearing, please contact the city council members at (308) 233-3216 and ask them to lift this ban.  To view the City Council’s website, please visit http://ne-kearney.civicplus.com/index.asp?ID=2
