This legislative session is in full swing, and we are nearly through the bill introduction period.

One of my bills introduced this session is LB 300, which would expand the Castle Doctrine in our state. With this bill, Nebraskans will be able to better protect themselves and others using their Second Amendment rights

Thankfully, this is shaping up to be a strong session for the Second Amendment in Nebraska, as many senators have introduced bills to protect your rights to keep and bear arms. 

Senator Bostleman’s LB 85 would require the Nebraska State Patrol to give a four-month notice before the expiration of a concealed carry permit.

Senator Ben Hansen’s LB 173 would make it lawful to transport a firearm from one location where it is legal to another where it is legal without having to have a concealed carry permit. For example, under current law, a person without a concealed carry permit who takes their weapon from their car to the shooting range in a case would technically be in violation of our current concealed carry laws. LB 173 would resolve this issue.

Senator Halloran’s LB 188 would adopt the Second Amendment Preservation Act. This Act would forbid state employees from enforcing federal laws that infringe the right to bear arms.

Senator Erman’s LB 223 would allow archery hunters to also carry a sidearm for protection.

Senator Brewer’s LB 236 would allow counties to authorize the carrying of concealed weapons for all people that are not already prohibited from possessing weapons under state or federal law.

Senator Clements’s LB 244 would allow Nebraskans to apply for a renewal of their concealed carry permit up to thirty days after its expiration.

Senator Lowe’s LB 404 would increase the length of a concealed carry permit from five years to ten.

You can learn more about these bills, or any other bills introduced in this session, by visiting the Nebraska Legislature’s website. I am excited to work with my colleagues on each of these bills and continue defending our Second Amendment rights.
