State Gun Laws

I have a protection order against the abuser. Can s/he keep a gun or buy a new gun?

Nebraska law allows the judge to order that the abuser cannot buy or have a firearm in an ex parte protection order and in a final protection order.1 If this is something that you want in your order, you may want to specifically mention in your petition that the abuser has firearms in his/her possession and that you want the judge to order them to be removed.
