Nebraska lawmakers will debate new gun restrictions for juveniles this year in the wake of recent mass shootings.

Omaha Sen. Brad Ashford introduced two bills this week designed to keep guns and ammunition away from unsupervised juveniles. One measure would restrict the sale of ammunition. Another would hold adults liable for leaving unsecured firearms in locations that are accessible to minors or mentally incompetent people who may illegally possess the guns.

Ashford says he hopes the federal government will tackle legislation dealing with the sale of large ammunition magazines and unregulated gun shows.

Sen. Mark Christensen of Imperial opposes Ashford's bill. Christensen says he might introduce legislation that allows teachers and administrators to keep guns secured in their vehicles on school property.
