Nebraska: Critical Emergency Powers Legislation Prioritized for 2014 Session

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

An amended version of Legislative Bill 390, introduced by state Senator Mark Christensen (44), has advanced from committee and is prioritized to be scheduled for debate on General File, the first of three votes a bill needs to make its way to the Governor.  LB 390 is important “emergency powers” protection legislation that would ensure your right to self-defense is not infringed upon by the government during a declared state of emergency.

Specifically, the amended version of LB 390 would strike the word “firearms” from the list of items the Governor may suspend during a declared state of emergency.  While this amendment does not go as far as the original bill, it still protects Second Amendment rights by ensuring that the Governor does not have the power to prohibit or restrict the otherwise lawful possession, use, carrying, transfer, transportation, storage or display of a firearm.

This legislation would protect citizens in Nebraska from a violation of their constitutional rights reminiscent of what occurred in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, where law-abiding citizens were stripped of their lawfully owned firearms by overzealous government officials, leaving them defenseless and unable to protect their families and property.

LB 390 provides an essential protection for gun owners in the Cornhusker State.  Please contact your state Senator TODAY and urge him or her to SUPPORT LB 390.  Please click here to identify your state Senator.
