Pass this on to everyone you know!

The Nebraska Shooting Range Protection Act (LB503) will prevent our established shooting ranges from being shut down by municipalities or neighbors who move next door after the fact. Contact your senators and ask them to support this bill! Nebraska is one of only two states with no such protection, meaning anyone can move in next door to your favorite range and shut you down for a noise violation.

LB503 has moved from committee to the general legislature. If we don't get it passed this session we won't have another chance until next year.

Got a good reply from my Senator (Coash). He stated he's also a recreational shooter and supports the bill.

Did you email him or some other form? I always email my senator and never hear back.

When I email my congress critters, they take awhile but always reply.

Good news! LB503 has advanced from General File to Select File, which is the next round of debate. The next step is Final Reading, where it is read aloud and voted on by the Legislature. If that passes it's off to the Governor!

Keep writing those Senators!

I just looked at the Unicameral website. Yesterday as in May 13th, LB 430 went to the Governor's desk.

But I can't find anything on if he did or is going to sign it.

It passed 45-3-1.

It looks to me like it's still in Final Reading? If that's the case it still has to pass a voice vote before going to the Governor.

I feel pretty good about the chances of the Governor signing it, he seems to have his head on straight.

I screwed up alittle. LB 430 is the change provisions to the concealed handgun permit act.

Good news, it's passed the Legislature and is awaiting signature by the Governor.

LB503 was signed yesterday by the Governor. Thanks to everyone who contacted their Senator, don't forget to thank them for their support.
