Always obey the laws that govern concealed or open carry. Becoming a felon will make you very used to not carrying...ever again.
My advice would be: for the next 180 days or until your permit is issued to you, pick where you are going to go very carefully and only go where you must. Make sure that the stores you shop at are in a good area of town and as safe as possible. Limit your travel outside the home and just wait it out.
It sucks I know but, what else can you do?
Frankly crime is not that big of a deal in this state. We have a few gangs, who for the most part are content to shoot one another.

As for getting busted carrying a concealed weapon, in this state it's a class I misdemeanor. And I have been caught carrying a concealed firearm. Of course I used the justifiable defense clause and it was no big deal, the officer stopped me for no headlights. I freely admitted I was armed. However that was nearly ten years ago, and I no longer carry in such a fashion, except when on private property. When out of Omaha I used to carry open quite frequently. And still do within my small area of traffic.
So where it stands, NE is generally very gun friendly, heck it is a farming/cattle state, and we have a VERY large hunting population. But the mentality here is "why would anyone need to carry a gun concealed unless you are a hitman"? So most of the time open carry won't even garner a second glance, except in Omaha and now some bliss ninny townships. CCW is frowned upon in many, many other towns, in fact they are busy passing local codes making it illegal to carry, even if you have a CCW. This is why I for one was an opponent of our CCW law. All it's done has stirred up a hornets nest that was best left alone. We already had allowable concealed carry on the books, and virtually NO local laws disallowing it.
Now we have more hoops to jump through, and even if you do get a CCW permit, a bunch of local laws disallowing carry in their town.
