Nebraska: Your Action Needed - Constitutional Carry Set for a Monday Vote!

Nebraska: Your Action Needed - Constitutional Carry Set for a Monday Vote!

Next Monday, the Nebraska Senate is poised to vote on important Constitutional Carry legislation, Legislative Bill 773!  The measure is still progressing through a series of votes before it officially passes out of the Senate to the Governor’s desk.  That is why it is more important than ever that you immediately contact your State Senator and ask them to SUPPORT Legislative Bill 773 without further amendments!

Half of the Nation has now enacted some form of Constitutional Carry.  Nebraska can lead the charge for the second half to do so as well.  However, an attempt is being made to add Amendment 2106 to this important self-defense measure, which codifies Omaha’s firearm registration, stigmatizes firearms by increasing penalties for non-violent offenses, and makes “failure to inform” a felony.  The point of Constitutional carry is to make it easy and affordable for everyone to exercise their right to self-defense.  Amendment 2106 is a discriminatory attempt to place Omaha’s extreme firearm registration requirement into state law, only affecting Nebraskan’s in Omaha.  Your NRA-ILA stands staunchly in opposition to these additions to LB 773.

Legislative Bill 773 recognizes that a law-abiding adult who is legally allowed to carry a concealed firearm, can do so without first having to obtain government permission.  This ensures that citizens have the right to self-defense without government red tape or delays.  Additionally, this legislation maintains the existing concealed handgun license system, so citizens who still wish to obtain a permit may do so. 

Again, it is extremely important that you please contact your State Senator and ask them to vote to make Nebraska the 26th State with Constitutional Carry, by SUPPORTING Legislative Bill 773.
