    The foster care system in every state need to do everything it can to bring new families into the system, not drive existing ones out. Unfortunately these regulations drives both prospective families and existing ones away.

    That said, foster families that hold CCW permits need to take extra special precautions as many kids aren't just orphans or abused/neglected but juvenile offenders in the system as well (all too often it's a combo). Often times the agencies will either lie or withold information about kids they cannot place so one may not know if the new kid is an orphan or in the system for killing his siblings and setting fire to animals.

    This kinda struck a chord, as just today I took a friend's foster kid shooting with me at a local indoor range. His foster family is on an activity with 2 other fosters that this kid couldn't participate in, so my wife and I are caring for him.

    Despite a number of mental and emotional handicaps this kid can shoot tiny bugholes with my scoped Savage Mark 2 FVT and was the most safety conscious on the line today and it was noticed by others.

    Well, I am a Foster parent, and I will quit if they try to tell me I can't carry or own firearms...

    I suspect that most gun owning foster parents will, if this flies.

    I wonder how they'll treat foster parents who are LEO's. There's a bunch around my area.
