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.
Please contact Governor Heineman today and respectfully ask him to sign LB 512 into law as amended. To contact the Governor, please call (402) 471-2244 or e-mail him by clicking here.
