Question:
Do I need to register my handgun?

Answer:
Yes. If you live in the City of Omaha or purchase the firearm in the City of Omaha, you must register it with the Omaha Police Department in order to comply with city ordinances.

Question:
Where do I register my firearm?

Answer:
At the Omaha Police Department Central Headquarters, 505 S. 15th St., 402-444-5600. The hours are: 7:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. seven days a week.

Question:
What do I need to register my firearm with the Omaha Police Department?

Answer:
Valid identification and paperwork from the place where you purchased the firearm. If you purchased the gun from a private owner or already possess the handgun, you must have the previous owner's name and last know address, the unloaded gun (preferably in a case) and the bill of sale. Contact OPD, 402-444-5600, for current registration fee.

Question:
If I live out of state, can I purchase a handgun in Nebraska and take it back to my home state?

Answer:
NO. In order to obtain a Permit to Purchase, you must have a valid Nebraska driver's license, state ID card or Military ID with your current address. Permits to Purchase must be obtained from the county of residence.

Question:
What is the best way to transport a firearm?

Answer:
Locked in its case unloaded and stored in the trunk. The ammunition should not be stored with the firearm. If you are in a pick-up, the weapon should be unloaded and locked in its case and placed behind the seat where it is not readily accessible to the occupants.

Question:
How often do I need to get a permit to purchase a firearm?

Answer:
A handgun permit is necessary in order to purchase, rent, lease or receive transfer of a handgun.  Possession in itself, does not require this permit.  The permit can be renewed every three years in the county in which you reside, but it is not necessary to do so unless a handgun transaction is anticipated. The renewal process is the same as the initial application process.

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.
