With an emphasis on gun laws in a lot of state legislatures lately, it’s becoming important for the American citizen to be informed of the differing gun laws across the nation. Nebraska gun laws are among some of the least stringent in the U.S., when compared to more liberal states like New York or California. If you plan on traveling through the Cornhusker State anytime soon, it’ll definitely pay off to be knowledgeable about their laws.

1. Concealed carry

Nebraska’s firearms and concealed carry permits are honored by most every state in the U.S., with California, New York, Pennsylvania, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Illinois, Georgia, and South Carolina being some of the states which don’t honor Nebraska’s permits, according to Handgunlaw.us.

2. New permits are easy

An interesting few sentences from Nebraska’s gun laws state that if you move from another state, whose concealed carry permit is honored by the Nebraska for reciprocity purposes, you can immediately apply for a Nebraska permit and the usual 180-day residency period requirement will be waived.

3. Owners aren’t required to register

Another unique aspect of Nebraska gun laws is that owners of rifles, shotguns, and handguns aren’t required to register their weapons, and they don’t need permits to carry any of their firearms. The only permit required is one to carry a handgun, which came into effect in Nebraska in January 2007, according to Nebraska Shooters.

4. Certificates are required for most handguns

In order to purchase, receive, or trade a handgun in Nebraska, you have to obtain a certificate. The only circumstances in which you don’t need a certificate are if the transferee is a federally licensed firearms dealer, the handgun is an antique, or the transfer of the weapon is temporary.

This is a pretty unique aspect of Nebraska gun laws, as most states require more paperwork and registration of firearms before they’re traded or purchased between individuals, according to Nebraska Shooters.

Knowing these laws will definitely help you have a more enjoyable experience in Nebraska with your firearms.
