New Bill Could Cut Gun Permit Wait Time for Victims of Domestic Violence


Soon, the state could be required to fast-track concealed carry gun permits for victims of domestic violence.

Senator Dave Bloomfield introduced a bill Monday that would give the Nebraska State Patrol five days to approve a concealed-carry handgun permit for victims, if a local law enforcement agency recommends it.

The current law gives the patrol 45 days to issue a permit, this would mean a large reduction in wait time for victims.
