Firearm use, especially concealed carry use, is becoming a growing trend in Nebraska.
According to “Firearms in Nebraska,” a March 2016 Legislative Research Office report for the Nebraska Legislature, the total active conceal carry permits in the state grew from more than 12,500 in 2012 to more than 37,500 in 2015.
As noted in the report, until 2006, concealed carry was illegal under most circumstances. That year, the Legislature passed LB 454, the Concealed Handgun Permit Act 19, which provides the framework for legally carrying concealed handguns.
The act was 10 years in the making. A measure to allow concealed carry was first introduced in 1996 and reintroduced continually in the Legislature until it passed. Under the act, concealed means “the handgun is totally hidden from view. If any part of the handgun is capable of being seen, it is not a concealed handgun.”
