(Lincoln, NE) -- Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts declares the state a "Second Amendment Sanctuary State."
On Wednesday, Ricketts signed the symbolic proclamation, reaffirming what he says is "Nebraska’s support for the right to bear arms."
“The White House and U.S. Congress have announced their intention to pursue measures that would infringe on the right to keep and bear arms,” says Governor Ricketts’ proclamation. “Nebraska will stand up against federal overreach and attempts to regulate gun ownership and use in the Good Life.”
