Cities In Nebraska Fighting For Concealed Carry Law!

Friday, August 25, 2006

 

Lincoln Update:  On Monday, the Lincoln City Council passed the ordinance proposed by Mayor Colleen Seng (D), to add a list of crimes to an existing ordinance that would restrict who can possess a firearm within the Lincoln city limits.  The new state law already bans concealed weapons in government buildings that contain courthouses or city hall meetings, but the city council also passed another ordinance expanding the ban to include other dangerous weapons, and firearms in plain view.  Please continue to call Mayor Seng at (402) 441-7511, and the City Council members at (402) 441-7515, and ask them to reconsider, and oppose, any further attempt to infringe on Lincoln’s law-abiding resident’s Right-to-Carry.

 

Kearney Update:  On Tuesday, a large group of NRA members attended the Kearney City Council public hearing to show their support on lifting the city’s ban on concealed firearms.  This hearing was held to gauge public opinion.  In response to the concealed carry ban, citizens organized the Kearney “Right to Carry Concealed” Taskforce.  The taskforce held their first meeting on Thursday to brainstorm ideas to help inform the City Council that concealed permit holders are law-abiding citizens and not criminals.  Please contact the Kearney City Council members at (308) 233-3216 and ask them to support lifting the city’s ban on concealed firearms. 

 

Columbus Update:  In a surprise move, the Columbus City Council Public Property, Safety and Works Committee met on Monday, and voted to retain the city’s ordinance barring concealed weapons.  This issue will be revisited next year after the new state law has been in place for a few months.  Please check your email and http://www.nraila.com/ for future updates on this infringement of Columbus city residents right to keep and bear arms.
