Nebraska’s Governor Jim Pillen has signed into law the state’s first permitless carry bill, making the Cornhusker State America’s 27th with a law protecting gun owners’ rights to carry without a permit. Gov. Pillen’s signing follows closely on the heels of Gov. Ron DeSantis’s similar move in Florida. Fox News’ Emma Colton reports:
Nebraska became the 27th state in the nation to enshrine in law the right of its residents to carry concealed firearms without a permit.
“Signing this bill upholds the promise I made to voters to protect our constitutional rights and promote commonsense, conservative values,” Gov. Jim Pillen said in a comment to Fox News Digital on Tuesday. “I appreciate the hard work of those senators who supported this legislation, and particularly that of Sen. Brewer who led this charge and carried it through to the end.”
Pillen’s signature on Tuesday further solidifies the U.S. as a constitutional carry-majority nation, after Florida tipped the scales as the 26th state in the nation with permitless carry laws on the books earlier this month.
The Nebraska law will take effect 90 days after the end of the legislative session, which is scheduled for June 9. Eligible Nebraska residents will then be allowed to carry concealed firearms on their person or in their car without paying the government for a permit.
The bill was backed by the NRA, which celebrated Pillen’s signature in comment to Fox News Digital on Tuesday.
