Janssen uses gun rights to raise funds|
A bill that seeks to nullify federal gun restrictions in Nebraska is being used to help state Senator Charlie Janssen raise money in his campaign for governor. Janssen's campaign staff sent a fundraising email to supporters on Thursday, calling attention to legislation that the Republican lawmaker sponsored this year. Janssen has courted gun owners as he competes in the GOP primary. He spoke recently to the Nebraska Firearms Owners Association. Senator Ernie Chambers of Omaha criticized the Nebraska measure as "preposterous" in a hearing earlier this year.
