Although there are some very good quality foreign made ammunition they are becoming hard to find and they in our opinion don’t quite measure up to the American manufactures overall quality.

The Nebraska State Constitutional Provision States: “All persons ... have certain ... rights, among these are ... the right to keep and bear arms for security or defense of self, family, home, and others, and for lawful common defense, hunting, recreational use, and all other lawful purposes, and such rights shall not be denied or infringed by the state or any subdivision thereof.”
In Nebraska, to purchase a handgun, a permit to purchase is required. Rifles and shotguns are not subject to gun laws more restrictive than those at the federal level. As of January 1, 2007, concealed handgun permits (CHPs) are being issued by the Nebraska State Patrol.
Nebraska is a "shall issue" state as of January 1, 2007, Requirements for a concealed carry permit in Nebraska are a state-certified handgun safety course within the past three years, a resident of the state, a successful background check and at least 21 years of age. Nebraska does not issue permits to anyone who is barred from owning a handgun under federal law.
The NRA has reported that the Nebraska legislature has passed a Right to Carry legislation and Governor Heineman has signed it into law. Nebraska is now the 48th State to have some form of Right to Carry. There are now 38 states that are shall issue, and Nebraska will be the 39th shall issue state.
Nebraska does not have a law against open carry in public, hence Nebraska is an open carry state. However there is no state statute specifically "allowing" it and there is no state pre-emption in this regard either so local law can be more strict than the state law.
April, 2012 Legislative Bill 807, Concealed Handgun Permit reform legislation, passed during its final reading on the floor of the Legislature by an overwhelming 48 to 1 vote. LB 807 was then transmitted to Governor Dave Heineman who signed it into law. Pursuant to Nebraska Statute 69-2403 a firearm purchase certificate is required to purchase, lease, rent, or receive a handgun. The law applies to both retail and private party transactions. The law also prohibits selling, leasing, renting, or transferring a handgun to a person who does not possess a handgun certificate.

Lincoln County Sheriff Jerome Kramer stated; "I support [LB 451], because I took an oath to support the Constitution in its entirety, There are things happening at the federal level that are concerning to a lot of Americans. I think Sen. Janssen took the first step to keep the federal government out of our personal lives in Nebraska."
Two Nebraska Sheriff’s have gone on record as supporting a bill that would impede the Federal government’s efforts to enforce the gun ban bills currently before the U.S. House and Senate. The bill drew support from Nebraska Sheriffs Jerome Kramer of Lincoln County and Shawn Hebbert of Grant County.
A growing number of elected Sheriff’s from across the country are starting to become outspoken on the issue of gun control and supporting the US constitution and specifically the second amendment. The Nebraska Sheriff's Association Opposes Gun Bans, and as a collective body voted to endorse Nebraska LB 451. Although individual Sheriff’s offices in Nebraska may not have made individual statements regarding the second amendment and their support, that support is evident by their membership in the Nebraska Sheriff’s Association, and their public statement of belief in the entire Constitution including the second amendment.
Citizens and Sheriffs’ Rally to Preserve Threatened Second Amendment Rights, Angry elected county sheriffs too are continuing their rise against Congress and the President for the same reason. “Leave the Bill of Rights alone.” Their movement, starting in mid-January, also has yet to break through the unsympathetic establishment press.
Perhaps Remington should consider a state that is not only friendly to the Second Amendment, but also has a governor trying to find a way to get rid of both individual and corporate income taxes. If Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman and the Legislature can accomplish that, perhaps that can be incentive for companies to relocate to Nebraska instead of staying in states unfriendly to their product or that levy taxes detrimental to business and job creation. It's probably just a dream, but it would be awesome to have such a legendary gun manufacturer relocate to Nebraska.
Nebraska currently only has a couple of very small specialty manufacturers in the firearms industry so there is a perfect climate for the Governor to try and entice mainstream firearm manufacturers to move to the state.
