Gun owners who legally transport weapons in their vehicles would have more property rights defined in Nebraska law, under a measure moving through the state Legislature.

Legislative Bill 785 would provide clear guidelines for the transportation and storage of firearms in vehicles in publicly accessible parking lots throughout the state.

Sen. Mark Christensen of Imperial says many gun owners face erratic rules and actions by employers regarding the transportation and storage of firearms in private vehicles in parking lots open to the public.

He says his bill brings a balance between private property rights and the right to bear arms for law abiding citizens.

The senator says people should be able to keep a gun safely stored in their vehicles in a public place regardless of an employer's rules.
