Legislative Bill 430, introduced by State Senator Mark Christensen (44), has been scheduled for a hearing in the Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, March 11.
This important legislation would give the state the sole authority to regulate firearms, thus prohibiting cities and municipalities from enacting local anti-gun ordinances. In addition, this legislation would establish reciprocity agreements with states that equal or exceed Nebraska’s current training requirements for Right-to-Carry permits, and allow for armed security to be present in places of worship, including citizens licensed to carry concealed handguns. Finally, the bill would allow non-resident military personnel who are stationed in Nebraska to apply for resident permits to carry a concealed handgun.
We encourage you to attend the hearing, if possible. If you are unable to attend, we encourage you to submit written testimony or contact your Senator and respectfully urge them to support HB 430 after it leaves committee. To find contact information for your State Senator, please click here.
