Foster Parents Lose Kids Over Gun

posted on September 2, 2015

Kristi and Rod Beber were asleep at their home in Las Vegas, Nev., when they heard screaming from outside and looked to find their neighbors on their property. Concerned for the safety of their three foster children, Rob retrieved a gun while his wife called police. The incident was resolved, and it never became necessary to point the firearm at anyone. So the Bebers were shocked when the Department of Family Services (DFS) revoked their license to be foster parents and transferred their children to a group home. 

DFS claims that “the incident did not describe an adult exercising sound judgment” and indicates that state law prohibited foster parents from having loaded firearms. But the law in question has since been overturned by new legislation, and no one could seriously argue that defending one’s children with caution and restraint is a sign of bad judgment. The Bebers, who have fostered more than 100 children, are now fighting to have their license reinstated.
