On Thursday, January 25, the Nebraska Judiciary Committee is scheduled to consider anti-gun Legislative Bill 780. Please contact members of the committee and politely urge them to OPPOSE LB 780 when it comes up for a vote.
Legislative Bill 780, sponsored by state Senator Pansing Brooks, seeks to ban the manufacture, import, transfer, and possession of firearm sound suppressors. Further, LB 780 would also make it a felony to knowingly possess a “trigger activating device” that is designed or functions to accelerate the rate of fire of a semi-automatic firearm.
The broad and overreaching provisions in LB 780 could potentially criminalize firearm modifications such as competition triggers and ergonomic changes. Sound suppressors and firearm modifications like these are commonly used by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability.
Again, it is imperative that you contact members of the committee and politely urge them to OPPOSE LB 780 when it comes up for a vote.
