    Headed through Wyoming and Nebraska to Omaha for Thanksgiving. I have a Utah CC Permit.
    I just don't entirely understand the Nebraska and Omaha laws. Nebraska is a state that says it reciprocates with Utah's permit. So does that mean I can carry in Nebraska, under the same rules that I can in Utah? Condition 1?
    Then Omaha has different rules too. And I've tried reading them, but the jargon can get a little confusing.
    Can I legally carry my handgun, concealed, in the city of Omaha, NE, with my Utah CC Permit?

    Just looking for some help in understanding my carry rights and eligibility in Nebraska and Omaha.

    Here the link to NE-
    Alot more restrictions then you have in Utah. Read and heed. Omaha from what I've read is very Anti-carry- I'm sure there are many no carry signs and they will bust you if you carry anyways-force of law! Looks like they will bust you if you carry anywhere close to schools as well! Which means any where in a major city!:faint:

    The state has loosened up a few laws with CCW and the city of Omaha is trying to ignore some of them so it's a bit of a mess.

    As far as CCW with an out of state permit goes, I personally have not heard of any issues and seeing as how Council Bluffs Iowa is basicly East Omaha I'm sure a lot of Iowigians carry over here.(I know a few and have not heard of any problems.)

    The Nebraska Firearms Owners Assn ( ) might have some info, there is a forums board on the site that may be able to answer some of your questions.

    thanks guys. i've read through their laws, but it can just get so confusing.
    I've settled that for my roadtrip through NE until I get to my bro's house I'll be carrying, which should be fine. but once at my bro's house in omaha, i'll pack up the gun til it's time to head back home.
