Foster parents denied due to LTCF

Quote: Nevada couple were denied their request to serve as foster parents because they have permits to carry guns.

Brian and Valerie Wilson, of Las Vegas, told “Fox & Friends” Sunday that they have always planned to become foster parents and eventually adopt, but have been denied permission to do so because of a state regulation that prohibits the carrying of loaded weapons with foster children.


Quote:The Wilsons said they got the gun permits years ago after they were victims of an attempted home invasion. “We realized that bad things can happen to good people at any time and we need to be responsible,” Brian Wilson said.

Now the Wilsons are fighting to get the law in Nevada changed.

They testified last week before the state Assembly Judiciary Committee to ask lawmakers to approve Assembly Bill 167, which would allow residents to carry loaded weapons on their person or in a car and still serve as foster parents, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

They should've read the fine print. It's a shitty rule, but there it is.

They should make an international incident out of it, as they are doing, to highlight the absurdity.

Yeah but when the fine print is against one's constitutional right, then it shouldn't be there.

Unless the Federal gov't is the entity that created this law and barring the family from adopting then there's no Constitutional infringement. It's the State law and state firearms rights that are in question.

Probably for the best to have a kid remain in need of parents rather than expose them to lawful firearm ownership by two adults offering to provide a nurturing environment for someone else' rejected kid.

White I find more concerning is the number of landlords out there that are making it so that ownership of a firearm is grounds for lease termination. I'm not saying the landlord should not have the right to say no guns in my house, but it gives you an idea of which direction the winds are blowing. Thank the insurance companies and the lawyers. It kind of reminds me of the forced arbitration clauses you see in almost every job contract these days where poor people work like Walmart or Target who don't read the fine print. This thing as a whole is going to proliferate everywhere moving forward, not just in agreements with government.
