NRA Is Supporting Nebraska Pre-emption Legislation

posted on January 10, 2017

We told you last week about firearm pre-emption legislation that has been introduced in Nebraska. Now the National Rifle Association has announced its support for the measure.

Legislative Bill 68 would ensure Nebraskans don’t inadvertently violate the law as they travel through the state. This problem is the result of local gun ordinances that are more restrictive than state laws and those of neighboring communities. LB 68 would eliminate this confusing patchwork of laws by ensuring that state gun laws pre-empt local ordinances.

“When law-abiding Nebraskans who choose to exercise their right to self-defense are scared at every turn that they might be breaking a law, that becomes a de facto gun ban,” said Catherine Mortensen, spokesperson for NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “Our goal is to eliminate this confusing patchwork of laws so that law-abiding Nebraskans can carry with confidence.”
