Omaha, Nebraska Mayor Jean Stothert signed two gun control measures this month; one bans ‘bump stocks,’ and the other prohibits the sale of gun-building kits.
Although Nebraska’s elections are nonpartisan, Stothert declared her affiliation as a Republican during her filing for the 2017 election.
The Nebraska Examiner reported that Stothert signed the ban on ‘bump stocks’ on Thursday and the ban on gun-building kits on November 9th.
The gun controls signed by Stothert appear to be leading to legal challenges against Omaha.
Those readying the legal challenges point to legislation Gov. Jim Pillen (R) signed earlier this year removing the “local charter authority” Omaha had used to pass stricter controls than exist at the state level.
In the spring of 2023, Stothert issued an executive order prohibiting concealed carry in “every building owned or leased by the city,” according to WOWT. She did this in response to Nebraska’s shift to constitutional carry.
