Nebraska: Permit-to-Purchase Repeal Bill to be Heard in Committee

Gun Rights

Tomorrow, February 22nd, Legislative Bill 883, legislation that repeals the firearm permit-to-purchase requirement in Nebraska is scheduled to be heard in the Judiciary Committee. Please use the link below to contact members of the committee and ask them to support LB 883. Expediency is more important than ever when it comes to the right of self-defense. A delay could be a matter of life and death. 

A permit-to-purchase system is redundant and unnecessary. The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) is already in place to do background checks and instantly provides that information to firearm dealers. Federal law requires all firearm dealers to be licensed and to initiate a background check before transferring a firearm to a non-dealer, regardless of where the transfer takes place. Background checks for firearms have been conducted through NICS since November 1998. A NICS check is done instantly while a permit-to-purchase application could take up to 30 days.

Please forward this to your family and friends and encourage them to also contact Senators to ask them to Support LB 883!
