Nebraska’s Attorney General Issues Opinion on Omaha’s Preemption Violation, Legislature Responds

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

On Friday, March 26, Attorney General John Bruning (R) issued an opinion stating that the city of Omaha was violating state laws.  During the 2009 legislative session, the legislature passed LB 430, which gives the state the sole authority to regulate statewide conceal carry laws. City officials of Omaha refused to acknowledge that this would also apply to the draconian handgun registration requirement and have continued to enforce the ordinance in a violation of state law. 

Yesterday, March 29, members of the State Legislature reacted quickly and adopted language into LB 817, which would specifically prohibit the cities, counties, and any other municipalities from passing any sort of ordinance relating to registration of handguns for concealed carry permit holders.  The amendment was adopted by a very large margin and will be voted on final action today (March 30) in the legislature. 

The only two NO votes were State Senator Brenda Council (11) and State Senator Tanya Cook (13).  The underlying bill for LB 817 was authored by State Senator Kent Rogert (16) and prioritized by State Senator Tony Fulton (29).  The amendment to adopt the language specifically prohibiting registration was offered by State Senator Mark Christensen (44).  Please contact the following Senators and thank them for their support for your Second Amendment rights.
