Nebraska permitless carry bill moves forward after talk of “compromise” – Bearing Arms

[Sen. Justin] Wayne, the committee chair, said Friday’s vote reflected the fact that lawmakers are working to reach an agreement with the bill’s sponsor, Sen. Tom Brewer of Gordon, to address some of the concerns expressed during a public hearing two weeks ago. As of Friday afternoon, however, lawmakers hadn’t settled on the terms of the agreement.

Brewer has tried to get the Legislature to approve the issue since he first took office in 2017. A similar bill he brought last year narrowly fell short because of a filibuster.

The recent public hearing on LB77 lasted hours, with dozens of people testifying both for and against the bill. Opponents generally argued that the legislation would make Nebraska more dangerous, but Brewer said the agreement is more focused on concerns from local police.
