Busted for Possession of Legally Possessed Gun

Take your blood pressure medicine before reading this one.

According to a story in the Las Vegas Review-Journal today, 42-year-old Derrick Stiff is the parent of a student at Liberty High School in Las Vegas with “no known problems with students, parents or teachers.” Mr. Stiff also has a concealed weapon permit. So far, so good….no problem.

However, yesterday morning Mr. Stiff was arrested by SCHOOL police officers after a “routine traffic stop” in which it became known that Mr. Stiff’s had a .45-caliber handgun under his car seat. The head of the SCHOOL cops explained that properly registered guns belonging to someone with a concealed-carry permit are nevertheless not allowed on school property.

So Mr. Stiff – threatening no one, posing no danger to anyone, and doing nothing more than picking his kid up from school – was handcuffed and hauled off to the Clark County Detention Center where he was booked for “possession” of a legally possessed gun.

It’s outrageous! Where are the gun rights activists and pro-2A candidates?
