As amended, LB 512 would do the following:
Waive the current 180 day residency requirement as long as the new resident currently holds a concealed carry permit from their previous state and it is recognized by Nebraska;
Allow an individual who has been barred from exercising their Second Amendment rights due to a past mental health reason to have their firearm rights restored;
Require the state to provide mental health information to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) database and provide a relief-from-disabilities process;and
Allow law enforcement officers and security personnel to carry firearms at schools and school events.
