Couple Loses Foster Parent License over Legally Owned Gun
The Department of Family Services has pulled a Nevada couple’s license to serve as foster parents because of a legally owned gun.
Rod and Kristi Beber have fostered more than 100 children over five years. But this summer, they lost their license to foster because of a disturbance that happened back in April.
Rod explained this morning on “Fox and Friends” that he displayed his weapon at a couple of “assailants” amid an alleged disturbance in front of their home. No one was hurt or arrested in connection with the situation.
In July, DFS revoked the couple’s foster care license over the disturbance because “the incident did not describe an adult exercising sound judgment,” according to documents.
DFS also claimed that the law prohibits foster parents from having loaded guns at home. But that law changed in June to allow foster parents to have loaded guns for lawful purposes.
The Bebers are appealing the decision so that they’ll be able to care for more foster children in the future.
