LINCOLN, Neb. - Gov. Pete Ricketts signed a proclamation declaring Nebraska a “Second Amendment Sanctuary State” on Wednesday.
Ricketts said in a release the proclamation “reaffirms Nebraska’s support for the right to bear arms.”
The proclamation is technically symbolic as it does not change any laws or enforcement currently on the record in the state.
“Nebraska will stand up against federal overreach and attempts to regulate gun ownership and use in the Good Life,” Ricketts said in the release.
According to the governor's release, the proclamation comes as over 50 Nebraska counties have passed resolutions to declare themselves as Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties.
