With a recent upswing in changing gun laws across the nation the past few years, the laws regarding carrying firearms between states can be a bit overwhelming. A few debates are taking place in state legislatures across the country to change or completely alter existing firearms laws right now, so staying up to date on the changes is a good thing for firearms owners and potential buyers.

We took a look at Nebraska gun laws in order to help inform you if you can carry your firearms when visiting the Cornhusker State.

The short answer to this question is yes, according to Nebraska gun laws, you can carry your firearms while visiting the state. Nebraska honors firearms permits and licenses from all the states in the Union except Georgia, Vermont, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and South Dakota. Nebraska only honors these permits, however, if they are issued to citizens 21 years old or older.

In Nebraska, you are required to immediately notify police officers if you are officially contacted by one, in a traffic stop for instance. This law is pretty common across the U.S., and remains in effect in Nebraska. By letting an officer know that you are possessing a firearm, it shows that you don't have any malicious intent to use the firearm and are willing to cooperate with the officer fully, which is why the law is so common across the country.

Keep in mind, that if you have just moved to Nebraska, you don’t need a permit or registration of your rifles and shotguns, according to Nebraska's gun laws. This makes buying new firearms in the state easier for citizens who wish to purchase them.
While some of these laws may differ from more liberal states such as New York or California, they seem to work for Nebraska.
