The state of Nebraska requires a certificate to receive, buy, or sell handguns in most cases. There are exemptions such as, if the handgun is an antique, it is to a law enforcement agency, the person receiving the transfer is a federally licensed firearms dealer, if the transfer is between a spouses, or to parents, grandparents, uncles, nieces, nephews, or siblings. It is required by law that firearms dealers give every person buying a firearm information from the Department of Health and Human Services, about the dangers of leaving loaded firearms unsupervised around children.
