States should be encouraging and promoting accessible firearm instruction NOT barring it from law abiding citizens! 💯🙌

News Overview:

In California, new Department of Justice regulations, implemented as part of Senate Bill 2, have raised concerns among pro-gun advocates and educators. The regulations affect firearms instructors teaching classes required for state concealed weapons permits, limiting certification to those instructing at police academies, training armed security guards, or educating higher education students pursuing law enforcement careers. Critics argue that these changes, including restrictions on carrying concealed weapons in certain areas, create a shortage of certified instructors and make it challenging for Californians to obtain or renew concealed weapons permits.

News Overview:

A coalition of gun owners, led by the Nebraska Firearms Owners Association, has filed lawsuits in Douglas and Lancaster County District Courts challenging executive orders by the mayors of Omaha and Lincoln that restrict firearms in city parks and public spaces. The lawsuits argue that these orders violate a recent state law, Legislative Bill 77, which permits concealed carry without a permit and restricts local governments from regulating firearms beyond state allowances. The legal action seeks to declare the executive orders and certain local gun ordinances unconstitutional, emphasizing the plaintiffs' constitutional right to bear arms free from local restrictions.
