Nebraska state senator, registered nurse, and twice the victim of crime, Jeanne M. Combs, 50, is no shy sister when it comes to LB454 - the Concealed Handgun Permit Act.
The first-term senator from Milligan has made the bill her priority for the session and predicts it will become law. Such action would make Nebraska the 39th right-to-carry state and one of
47 states with some form of concealed carry, according to information provided through Combs' office by the National Rifle Association and its lobbying group, the Institute for Legislative Action.
I've been a crime victim twice, I've been stalked, I've been exposed to situations, said Combs, an NRA member who lives, while working in Lincoln, near what she describes as an area of high prostitution.
It's not that I fear for my life, she said. But we shouldn't be walking around in Code White all the time. We need to be in a defensive mode.
In the spring of 2004, Combs took a defensive handgun/concealed weapons course at the Front Sight Firearms Training Institute in Nevada.
I figured if I was going to take over (sponsorship) of the bill, I would want to know exactly what I was talking about, she said.
Today, Combs practices with an unloaded handgun, but says she'd load and use it if she had to defend herself.
You do not use a gun to protect property, period, she says.

Ah....true...I guess I didnt read it through as well as I should have before I posted
Wow, what a concept.
"Wait right there, Mr. Rapist"... Now where did I have that clip?....
Today, Combs practices with an unloaded handgun... HUH..! WTF!
WHEN -- not "if" -- the Concealed Carry Law passes in Nebraska, it won't be because of lukewarm support like this.
more to follow.....
I live in Illinois and vote for and support conservative candidates but am out numbered by Chicago dims and their flunkies.
I doubt seriously whether Illinois will respect the second amendment in my life time.
