Do I need a permit to purchase a gun?

YES. Any person (who is 21 years of age or older and is not prohibited from purchasing or possessing a handgun by 18 U.S.C. 922), who intends to purchase, lease, rent, or receive transfer of a handgun shall apply with the chief of police or sheriff of the applicant's place of residence for a certificate.

Anyone interested in obtaining a permit from the Bellevue Police Department should come to the front desk of the main police station located at 1510 Wall Street. In addition to the required handgun certificate fee, applicants must also present a current Nebraska motor vehicle operator's license, state identification card, or military identification card.
