Nebraska: Two Pro-Gun Bills Awaiting Action in Lincoln

Friday, February 6, 2009

As of Thursday, January 22, two NRA backed bills Legislative Bill 430 and Legislative Bill 490 have been introduced and assigned to committees. 

LB 430, sent to the Judiciary Committee, is an amendment made to the Concealed Handgun Permit Act, which would limit the power of cities and villages to regulate the ownership, possession, or transportation of firearms.  This state law preempts any existing ordinances, permits or regulations regulating the ownership, possession or transportation of firearms.  LB 430 would provide law-abiding citizens with more freedom and security to carry concealed firearms in the state of Nebraska. 

Assigned to the Natural Resources Committee, LB 490 would lower fees for hunting and fishing permits while extending the life on resident and non-resident permits.
