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.
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:
