Nebraska: Gun Control Bills Fail to Advance before Deadline

Nebraska: Gun Control Bills Fail to Advance before Deadline

Last week, hundreds of NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters attended the Judiciary Committee hearing, which included two extreme gun control measures.  Thanks to your steady opposition, neither of the proposed gun control bills were prioritized before the deadline and won’t advance this session.  Those bills include:

Legislative Bill 816, sponsored by Sen. John McCollister (R-20), requires that law-abiding gun owners pay a fee and obtain a certificate to purchase commonly-owned rifles and shotguns.  The measure requires a waiting period of at least 48 hours and up to five days, regardless of the outcome of a background check.  This is a deliberate attempt by anti-gun legislators to make it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to exercise their Second Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms. 

Legislative Bill 58, introduced by Senator Adam Morfeld (LD-46), creates Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPO) that suspend an individual’s Second Amendment rights following an ex parte hearing where the respondent is not present to defend themselves.  Upon the issuance of an ERPO, law-enforcement will be allowed to search for and seize any firearms possessed by the respondent.  An ERPO issuance is based on third-party allegations, even when there is no evidence of a crime having been committed. 

Again, thank you to NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters who contacted their Senators in strong opposition to these extreme measures.

Stay-tuned to NRA-ILA Alerts for more updates and information on issues affecting your Second Amendment rights in Nebraska.
