NRA-Backed Bill Becomes Law in the Cornhusker State

Friday, April 29, 2011

On Tuesday, April 26 LB 512 was signed into law by Governor Dave Heineman.  LB 512 requires the state to provide information concerning mental health adjudications to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) database and sets up a relief from disabilities process.  In addition, LB 512 makes numerous improvements to Nebraska’s right-to-carry laws.

LB 512 will 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.

Please contact Governor Heineman and thank him for supporting Nebraskans’ Second Amendment rights and for signing LB 512 into law.  To contact the Governor, please click here.
