Republican Mayor Signs Ban on ‘Bump Stocks’ and Gun-Building Kits in Omaha, Nebraska

Omaha, Nebraska Mayor Jean Stothert signed two gun control measures this month; one bans ‘bump stocks,’ and the other prohibits the sale of gun-building kits.

Although Nebraska’s elections are nonpartisan, Stothert declared her affiliation as a Republican during her filing for the 2017 election.

The Nebraska Examiner reported that Stothert signed the ban on ‘bump stocks’ on Thursday and the ban on gun-building kits on November 9th.

The gun controls signed by Stothert appear to be leading to legal challenges against Omaha.

Those readying the legal challenges point to legislation Gov. Jim Pillen (R) signed earlier this year removing the “local charter authority” Omaha had used to pass stricter controls than exist at the state level.

In the spring of 2023, Stothert issued an executive order prohibiting concealed carry in “every building owned or leased by the city,” according to WOWT. She did this in response to Nebraska’s shift to constitutional carry.

Clowns like this need to be thrown out of office for costing their state the inevitable legal challenges that their obviously unconstitutional regulations will bring about.

When they ban stuff, what are the manufacturers, distributors and shops supposed to do with the remaining stock? (No pun intended)
Also if the manufacturer is relying on his order book of said ‘banned goods’ to survive, what happens to the employees?
I would commit to being stunned at the decisions politicians make, but have come to the conclusion none of them could run a bath.

A RINO if there ever was one…!
Censure, recall and ban from running for office forevermore!
If there is resistance, then arrest using Citizen Arrest Powers.
