This afternoon, the Omaha City Council will consider an ordinance that would require individuals wishing to sell firearms to "secondhand stores," such as Scheels, Guns Unlimited, and other places (which are not pawnbrokers), be fingerprinted before the transaction can occur. The ordinance would also require store owners to keep these fingerprints on record and authorizes law enforcement to inspect those records without notice or warrant.
If passed, this could lead to future ordinances requiring fingerprinting for all firearm transactions.
The meeting will be held at 2:00 p.m. in the Legislative Chambers of the Omaha City Council located at
Please take the time to attend today’s hearing and stand-up against this unwarranted ordinance. If are unable to attend, please contact the members of the City Council and respectfully voice your opposition to this measure. Contact information can be found below.
