Nebraska Pre-emption Legislation On The Move

posted on March 20, 2017

Nebraska pre-emption legislation, in the form of Legislative Bill 68, has advanced to the floor of the legislature after being approved in the Government, Military, and Veteran Affairs Committee late last week.

Because some local firearm ordinances are more restrictive than state law, Nebraskans are currently at risk for inadvertently violating the law as they travel through the state. The pre-emption legislation would help protect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners by eliminating the danger of running afoul of local ordinances.

According to NRA-ILA, Nebraska law allows each senator to designate one bill per year as their priority, ensuring it will be heard in the Legislature. State Sen. Mike Hilgers, author of LB 68, has designated that measure as his priority bill.
