(Michele Fiore) – During session I fought so hard to pass AB 167, which will now allow foster parents who have a concealed carry permit to keep guns and ammunition in their home and to carry a gun on their person while with a child outside the home.
Unfortunately, the Nevada Department of Family Services (DFS) has overreached and taken away Kristen and Rod Beber’s foster license because Rod was holding a gun in the name of self-defense.
Kristin and Rod are two genuinely good-hearted people who have opened their home to over a hundred foster children. To see the DFS take away their right to protect themselves and their family because in their opinion Rod was not acting as “an adult exercising sound judgment” is crushing. This is an example of the State overreaching and, frankly, being a bully just to show that they have power. I will continue to be a voice for the Beber family and all foster families who want to have their right to self-defend protected!

The last few weeks I have been out of the office spending time with my family, friends, and peers.
As many of you know, I have fully endorsed Senator Ted Cruz as the next President of the United States. A couple of weeks ago I had Senator Ted Cruz as a guest on “Walk the Talk with Michele Fiore”. I had such an amazing time talking with the Senator about his plans to make America a restored and stronger nation. If you missed the show, you can listen here.
After my interview with Ted Cruz I headed over to Attorney General Adam Laxalt’s Inaugural Basque Fry in the charming Northern Nevada town of Gardnerville. I can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than surrounded by great food, friends, and conversation! Click here to see my interview with Sam Shad!
