The National Rifle Association praised Nebraska lawmakers for limiting what information about gun owners was accessible under the state's public-records statutes.

Sen. Bruce Bostelman of Brainard introduced a measure (LB902) exempting information obtained by government agencies "regarding firearm registration, possession, sale, or use that is obtained for purposes of an application permitted" from the Nebraska Public Records Act.

The bill passed on final reading 47-0 and was signed by Gov. Pete Ricketts on Tuesday. It will go into effect in 90 days.
