The arguments for and against more gambling in Nebraska go like this:
Supporters say that there are already other forms of gambling, such as keno, pickle cards and horse racing, so what's the big deal? Also, they say that Nebraska loses big money on gambling to casinos in Iowa and South Dakota, where they are legal. They say adults should be allowed to make up their own minds to gamble or not.
Opponents say gambling hurts family values as well as other businesses such as convenience stores and mom and pop restaurants if they don't have gambling machines. And they say gambling creates more social problems such as alcohol abuse, child neglect and domestic breakups, the consequences of which cost society a sizeable amount of time and trouble.
