In Nebraska, any person who transports or possesses any machine gun commits a Class IV felony.1 This does not apply to any person qualified under federal law to possess or transport machine guns.2

Machine gun means “any firearm, whatever its size and usual designation, that shoots automatically more than one shot, without manual reloading, by a single function of the trigger.”3
