Nebraska Gun Permit Fees to Stay Same

Nebraska Gun Permit Fees to Stay Same

Residents of the Cornhusker state won’t have to worry about paying more for their right to carry a firearm this year.

Despite arguments that an increase would help counties cover the rising cost of processing permit applications, legislators voted 27-17 to keep the fee at $5, thus relieving law-abiding gun owners of any additional financial burden for exercising their Second Amendment-protected right.

That’s good news for Nebraskans, who have been applying for more permits in recent months.

There were two primary arguments against the proposal to raise the fee to $25. One was that a 400 percent increase was too much at once, and one was that the proposed increase would take the fee higher than the actual cost to process an application.
