Question:
If my handgun is lying on the front seat or on the dash, is it okay?

Answer:
If you are within the city limits of Omaha, you must have a concealed carry permit to carry a firearm in a vehicle, even when the firearm is in plain view. Outside the city limits of Omaha, you may carry a firearm in your vehicle if it is in plain view. Note: City boundaries are uneven and subject to change. It is your responsibility to know when you are in the city limits. Carrying a weapon that is accessible to passengers in a vehicle is not recommended. If you are stopped by a police officer and a weapon is visible, cooperate fully with the officer's commands and do not make sudden moves or touch the gun for any reason.
