Brian and Valerie Wilson “really want a family.” They applied to become foster parents, but were ultimately rejected by the Nevada Department of Child and Family Services. The reason behind their rejection has left the parents “heartbroken.”

Due to a regulation that requires that prospective foster parents store guns and ammunition in separate and secure containers, the Wilsons were deemed unfit to become foster parents because they legally carry concealed firearms.

Now, the Nevada Legislature is considering a new bill that would allow them to carry their firearms and still serve as foster parents.

“I am really heartbroken that the Department of Child and Family Services gave us this denial letter,” Valerie Wilson told lawmakers at a committee hearing on Wednesday.

The Review Journal has more information about the proposed bill:

   The bill would allow Nevadans with concealed-weapons permits, and law enforcement officers, to carry loaded weapons on their person in a home or car and still be eligible to be foster parents. If not carried on their person, the weapons would be required to be kept in a secure safe, but they could remain loaded.

So cops cannot be foster parents?

How did the foster care service become aware of the fact that they are CCW holders? Concealed means concealed and all that?
Regardless, I think this should be a fairly simple lawsuit to win.

Why do they need a new bill? Seems it would be easier for the lawmakers to tell the fucktards at DPS to change their arbitrary, fucked up rule.

In Arkansas the guns and ammo have to be stored separate and locked up. I asked a my CCW and they frowned on it but stopped short of telling me that I couldn't carry.
