Welcome to the Nebraska Firearms Owners Association

NFOA membership is open to all types of firearms owners as long as you are a resident of the state of Nebraska. Whether you are a trap shooter, long-range rifle shooter, concealed handgun permit holder, air gun, rifle and or shotgun hunter, NFA firearms enthusiast or belong to any other group of firearms owners, you are welcome to join our organization.

We are local firearms owners who have a personal interest in representing firearms owners rights in Nebraska. While there are much larger firearms owner groups and lobbyists, we have a personal stake right here in fighting for our rights. We do not have big money to fly in lobbyists from the coasts, we do not have the money to wine and dine Legislators, and we are just everyday normal Nebraska residents like you who want our voices to be heard by the various law makers. We will operate on what money is donated to us voluntarily.

Contact your State Senator and let them know that we want Firearms Freedom in Nebraska

This year the N.F.O.A. fought hard to get LB-289 out of the Judiciary Committee which was a victory in itself. The fight is not over! This bill would eliminate the ability of municipalities to create Unconstitutional Firearms laws above & beyond what the state of Nebraska law requires. Even though LB-289 has a slim chance of being heard this year, We could all benefit from contacting our state senator & letting them know that we want Firearms Freedom in Nebraska….Vote YES on LB-289!

4.) Committee Reports
4a.) Legislative

LB289 has successfully left the Judiciary Committee and is on General File. Our work will continue to encourage Speaker Hadley to provide it a full hearing
Given the possibility inherent in State Preemption legislation, a large scale effort may be required to update city/municipalities whose laws on the books are superseded by the State.
Other Bills that remain in committee are not likely to advance to the General File this session.

4b.) Member Engagement and Fundraising
Merchandising efforts are underway. Options for NFOA merchandising through a current vendor/supporter.
Starting with T-shirts and maybe sweatshirts as a suggested starting point.

Member engagement was discussed. Board members discussed strategies that would strike the hearts and minds of our members and generate active participation.

Fundraising ideas were discussed including beginning a members-only raffle and drawing the winner at our next Members’ Meeting.

4c.) Communications

Feedback indicates we need to increase our ability to more rapidly respond to news/legislative updates etc. While our members were certainly engaged and generating promotional messages, we need to be more proactive and prolific. Future topic areas for the newsletter were also discussed

4d.) Web Admin
Nothing significant to report

5. Member Meeting
Planning is ongoing. Save the Date Message blast is needed soon.

6. State Fair
NFOA booth at the state fair for 2015 may be tabled till next year.

8. Piryx
Piryx is the system currently in use for donations to NFOA. The system is targeted at non-profits and political campaign fundraising. System Support can be difficult to secure and other issues impacting member ability to make donations have occurred. A potential replacement for this system might rectify these issues.

9. Old Business
Nothing significant to report
