(Neb)-Brewer Gun Bill Gets Committee Hearing
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Legislature's Judiciary Committee heard testimony yesterday on several measures backed by gun-rights advocates....including one sponsored by Gordon Senator Tom Brewer.
Brewer's bill requires business owners who prohibit guns on their property to post signs saying guns aren't allowed and confront anyone who brings a firearm in despite the sign. Opponents say the bill would burden business owners who may be scared of someone with a gun in their establishment.
The committee also took testimony on a proposal to exempt gun registrations from the state's public record laws. Sen. Bruce Bostelman of Brainard said the state should protect information that could expose gun owners to identity theft or harassment while opponents argued the bill prevents analysts from studying gun violence committed by legal gun owners.
