Today the Nebraska Legislature voted 31-10 to pass Legislative Bill 77, “LB 77” by Senator Tom Brewer, the constitutional carry bill on Select File. This bill recognizes the fundamental right of law-abiding adults to carry firearms for self-defense without having to navigate burdensome government regulations. Governor Jim Pillen has pledged to sign LB 77. This is a huge step in Constitutional Carry becoming law in Nebraska! It has never made it this far and there is only ONE more vote before it is sent to the Governor’s desk.
It is essential that NRA members and Second Amendment supporters take action now to ensure that this bill becomes law. LB 77 does not change the criteria for eligibility to obtain a carry permit, nor does it affect previously issued permits. It also allows citizens who wish to obtain a permit for the purpose of carrying in other states recognizing Nebraska's permits, to do so.
By passing LB 77, Nebraska strengthens the state's commitment to the fundamental right of self-defense. Please contact your Senator and ask them to SUPPORT this bill without amendment. Additionally, please share this alert with your family and friends, and ask them to do the same.
