Join NAGO, NFOA, and other grassroots groups at the NE State Capitol state capitol between 11 and 1:30 to connect, visit senators’ offices, and show support for our inalienable right. 

Reminder: Reach out to your Sheriff and ask for a letter in support of LB77 be sent to Senator Brewer as part of our education strategy to move LB77 out of committe and onto the floor.

Talking Points:
LB77 is a bill that upholds the original intent of the founding father. All men are allowed to own firearms for their own protection & need.
Nebraska must continue to actively uphold the Constitution of the United States, no longer fearful of federal influence.
Our entire state needs to be on the same page.

Nobody has ever proven more, and stricter gun laws reduce violent crime at all. Exactly the opposite, Chicago being the best example of the strictest gun laws and one of the highest violent crime rates.

No registration or waiting period has ever deterred a criminal from purchasing a firearm. They don’t seem to care about laws and will buy stolen and illegal weapons.

Gun registration is just a deterrent to make law abiding citizens less likely to purchase.

“The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”

Thomas Jefferson, Commonplace Book (quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria), 1774-1776

Additional information:
In recent days, a few letters in response to LB77 from sheriffs have circulated on social media. One of these letters came from Douglas County Sheriff Aaron Hanson. In his letter, he takes a neutral position, an unsurprising but still disappointing move. This letter includes arguments we’re likely to hear coming from OPD and LPD testifiers on Thursday. Fortunately, a former candidate for governor, Breland Ridenour, came in with a solid response to Hanson’s letter. You can view that response here:
