scotts bluff county democrats


The Scotts Bluff County Democrats fully respect the rights of individuals to own and use guns for lawful purposes, such as sport shooting, hunting, defense against predators, and euthanizing livestock.

Scotts Bluff County Democrats believe that an obligation of those rights is that all gun owners must implement responsible gun ownership practices, which include but are not limited to: always treating a weapon as though it is loaded, storing ammunition separately from the weapon, and the safe storage of firearms to prevent theft and access by children.

Scotts Bluff County Democrats also encourage responsible gun ownership training for all new gun owners. Scotts Bluff County Democrats oppose the open carry of firearms at protests and/or any public event where said firearms serve only to intimidate other Nebraskans, including the Nebraska State Capitol.
