Lawmakers in Nebraska have just approved a bill which would allow concealed carry of firearms.
"Gov. Dave Heineman has said he would sign the measure into law.
When he does, 40 states will have so-called "right to carry" laws, according to the National Rifle Association. Eight have limited concealed-weapons laws.
Illinois and Wisconsin do not allow concealed weapons."
The next step is to improve on some of the restrictions within these laws.
