Nebraska: “Emergency Powers” Bill Scheduled for Hearing on Thursday!

Tuesday, February 19, 2008

Please Contact the Members of the Judiciary Committee Today!

The Judiciary Committee will hear vital “emergency powers” legislation, introduced by State Senator Kent Rogert (District 16), on Thursday, February 21 at 1:30 p.m. in Room 1113, located on the first floor of the Capitol.  LB1076 would prevent restrictions by the state on the legal possession, transfer, sale, transport, storage, display, or use of firearms and ammunition during a declared state of emergency.

This important piece of legislation would prevent government authorities from confiscating firearms from law-abiding citizens, such as occurred in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Please make plans to attend this important hearing.  If you are unable to attend, please contact the members of the Judiciary Committee and respectfully urge them to support our Second Amendment rights and right to self-defense during a declared state of emergency by supporting LB1076.

Again, the hearing will be held at 1:30 p.m. in Room 1113, State Capitol, Lincoln NE 68509.
