Please contact your state Senator TODAY and respectfully urge them to SUPPORT Legislative Bill 289.
A vote against Legislative Bill 289 is a vote in favor of gun registration in Nebraska!
Tomorrow, the Nebraska Unicameral Legislature has scheduled to conclude floor debate and vote on Legislative Bill 289, the state preemption bill currently on General File. This is the first of three votes that LB 289 will need to pass before being sent to Governor Pete Ricketts (R) for his signature.
As previously reported, LB 289, sponsored by state Senator Laura Ebke (32), will help protect the Second Amendment rights of all Nebraskans by creating a preemption statute to ensure that firearm and ammunition laws remain consistent across the Cornhusker State. This much-needed legislation will discontinue the practice of firearm registration by localities and prevent such registration practices by others in the future.
LB 289 passed out of the Judiciary Committee in 2015 without opposition. This bill qualified as a carryover bill for the second session of the 104th Legislature and has been placed on the list of Priority Bills for 2016.
Once again, it is vital that you contact your state Senator TODAY and respectfully urge them to SUPPORT Legislative Bill 289 so this critical pro-gun bill can advance in the Nebraska Legislature.
