The Voice of Nebraska Firearms Owners

I-am-somebody

 

Welcome to the Nebraska Firearms Owners Association Political Action Fund (NFOA-PAF)

 

NFOA-PAF is the only Nebraska political action group dedicated to being the leader in preserving your right as a law-abiding Nebraskan to purchase, possess, and use firearms as guaranteed in our State Constitution and the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. A political action group is an entity that can endorse candidates, give them money, conduct political events and – most importantly – tell citizens the truth about political candidates who run for office.

Nebraska’s gun laws are shaped by the senators in the Unicameral and for too long, anti-gun and anti-self defense state politicians have pushed for laws that chip away at our right to keep and bear arms. The founders recognized this right shall not be infringed, and so do we.

Since Federal Tax Code prohibits the Nebraska Firearms Owners Association, a registered 501(c)4 non-profit organization, from participating in elections, supporting pro-gun candidates, and defeating anti-gun liberal candidates, the NFOA-PAF was formed. We are a single-issue organization and stand to protect your rights in all aspects of firearms including: hunting and access to hunting lands, wilderness and wildlife conservation, civilian marksmanship training, protecting ranges for public use, law enforcement-related issues, product liability, trapping, self defense rights, and crime victim rights.

Amongst other activities, NFOA-PAF will research political candidate records and identify the anti-gun liberals who are attacking your gun rights here in Nebraska. Once we identify the gun grabbers, we’ll expose them and make it easy for you to fire them from their jobs – or prevent them from being hired in the first place. Likewise, we’ll also identify the political candidates fighting to protect your gun rights here in Nebraska and make it easy for you to support them against their gun-grabbing opponents.

Members of NFOA are assured their voices are heard in the Unicameral and that their elected officials will be held accountable. Members also benefit from being a part of a 10,000+ community of firearms owners in Nebraska, an excellent network of resources, information, training and education.

NFOA Event

NFOA Booth

 

Nebraska Firearms Owners Association (NFOA) is a grassroots group of Nebraska firearm enthusiasts who support the 2nd Amendment and the lawful exercise thereof for all purposes (hunting, recreation, protection). NFOA speaks out for and on behalf of firearm owners to the Nebraska Legislature and other law making bodies of the state.

NFOA is attempting to pass LB68 that unfortunately failed by one vote in the 2016 legislative year as LB289. LB68 is legislation to create a statewide firearms preemption law that would nullify Omaha’s handgun registrations system and Lincoln’s backdoor registration among other 2nd Amendment infringing local laws. Both Omaha’s and Lincoln’s laws have been ineffective in deterring crime or stopping criminals from owning and using firearms. These local laws can and do cause harm to lawful gun owners. NFOA is run by volunteers and membership is free CLICK HERE

2019 legislation priorities for NFOA

New bill Introductions 

The 106th Nebraska Legislature has convened and we now see what gun bills have been introduced.  We don’t expect much of anything to get traction this session, but we do expect bills that are hostile to your firearms rights to get through committee.  

The Judiciary committee is now chaired by Senator Steve Lathrop who has a history to opposing individual Liberty.  He was previously on the Judiciary Committee.  Steve was term limited after serving 8 years, and after sitting out 4 years is back.  The rest of the Judiciary Committee is not looking friendly either, with many familiar anti-gun faces. 

Judiciary Committee Members 
Sen. Steve Lathrop, Chairperson 
Sen. Tom Brandt 
Sen. Ernie Chambers 
Sen. Wendy DeBoer 
Sen. Adam Morfeld

Sen. Julie Slama 
Sen. Justin Wayne

Safe Storage Task Force Update 

Mayor Chris Beutler announced the creation of a Child Access to Firearms/Safe Storage Task Force. Beutler asked the task force to examine strategies to reduce access to firearms by children and to increase the safe storage of firearms in the community. The “concept” originally put forward by Lincoln City Council Member,Leirion Gaylor Baird, representatives of Nebraskans against Gun Violence began testifying in support of a task force during the open microphone sessions of the City Council. The NFOA was not asked to participate in the Task Force, and we were concerned during the preliminary press coverage that no firearms experts from any of the many recognized organizations within our state had a seat at the table.  We are now aware that a Lincoln Range owner will be participating, and in a more recent update, there will be representation by the local NRA rep on the task force. After many of our members responded to a call to action in our online community,  we still have many of original concerns unaddressed and questions unanswered. We will continue to watch this closely.

2019 Endorsements

The Nebraska Firearms Owners Association Political Action Fund is proud to endorse Senator Laura Ebke in her re-election campaign for District 32.  Senator Ebke has proven to be one of the strongest supporters of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, as well as Article One Section One of the State of Nebraska Constitution.  From introducing Legislation ranging from LB 289 (“state pre-emption”) to co-sponsoring and voting for several pro-firearms owners bills, she has been a true friend.  Her position as Chair of the Judiciary Committee has allowed for a fair and complete hearing of all guns rights bills.  She has not waivered, nor compromised her support for your firearms rights.

 

An  endorsement is for an open seat, in LD 40…the NFOA-PAF endorses Kieth Kube for Legislature. From our conversations with Kieth he is a no comprise supporter of the Second Amendment, while his opponent supports your rights but (has issues with “assault rifles”, silencers and 3D printed firearms). If you are in LD 40 please vote for Kieth Kube.
