A Nebraska firearm bill of sale is a document used to record the private sale of a firearm between a buyer and seller. Once completed, the form includes the purchase price, serial number, and description of the weapon, and acts as proof of purchase for both parties. Prior to buying a firearm, the state requires that individuals acquire a Firearm Purchase Permit from their local sheriff’s office or police department. It should be noted that the cities of Omaha and Lincoln have additional rules: in Omaha, all handguns must be registered, and in Lincoln, all firearms sales other than hunting rifles must be reported (Omaha Code § 20-251 and Lincoln Code § 9.36.030).
