The Nebraska Legislature will soon consider legislation (LB 958), sponsored by State Senator Brad Ashford (District 20), that would bring California-style gun-control to the Midwest and ultimately ban many semi-automatic firearms commonly owned by Nebraskans.
As drafted, LB958 will create a commission entitled “The Assault Weapons Commission” that will be charged with making a list of firearms that “they” believe should be illegal in Nebraska. The sale or possession of firearms on the “banned list” would presumably be illegal.
This gun ban scheme will only punish law-abiding citizens and will do nothing to curb crime or keep criminals from obtaining firearms illegally. This is simply another attack on our Second Amendment rights in Nebraska. Please contact your State Senator today and respectfully urge him or her to protect Nebraskans’ Right to Keep and Bear Arms by opposing LB958.
