Private Party Sales – Selling a Gun to an Individual

Selling to a Federal Firearms License (FFL) is much easier, but if you want to sell to a private party you’ll want to be informed.

Private sellers are not required to conduct background checks on handgun buyers in Nebraska. Generally, Nebraska law requires persons to have a handgun purchase certificate before purchasing, leasing, renting, or receiving a handgun and prohibits persons from selling, leasing, renting, or transferring a handgun to persons who do not have a certificate.

The background check is required as part of the application for a handgun purchase certificate and that check is conducted by the authorizing law enforcement agency, either the local sheriff’s office or police department. However, private sellers are not exempt from laws prohibiting knowingly selling a firearm to a felon or a juvenile.

Handgun certificates are good for three years from the date of issuance and allow the holder to purchase any number of handguns during this period, provided the holder continues to meet the legal requirements to purchase and possess handguns.

Finally, state law does not prohibit municipalities from enacting stricter provisions. Omaha and Lincoln are among municipalities that impose additional regulations within their jurisdictions. Among its provisions, Lincoln requires licensed dealers to report handgun sales occurring in the city to the police department. Omaha requires handgun sales in the city to be approved by the police and requires residents and visitors alike to register handguns possessed within the city limits.
