Permitless conceal-carry bill passes first-round vote in Nebraska Legislature
LINCOLN, Neb. (WOWT) - State senators moved Nebraska’s permitless conceal-carry bill forward Friday morning.
The 2nd Amendment debate from Wednesday carried into Thursday. The bill would allow anyone who can legally get a gun to conceal it in public — without needing a permit or the 8-hour safety training class.
The bill has the opposition of Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert and Omaha Police Chief Schmaderer, arguing that it takes away local control and will make it harder for officers to do their job.
A bill in the final stages needs three rounds of debate in the Unicameral before the vote.
