LAS VEGAS (AP) — A son of rancher Cliven Bundy has withdrawn his children from Clark County schools after his daughter was barred from carrying a pocket knife on school grounds.

Ryan Bundy says that's a violation of his children's rights, and evidence of county school administrators' "communistic mentality."

He told the Las Vegas Sun he has decided to pursue education for his children elsewhere.

Virgin Valley High School Principal Cliff Hughes defended his decision to prohibit Bundy's daughter from carrying a pocket knife, citing safety concerns.

He says if the Mesquite school allowed one student to carry a knife, it would have to allow others to do so.

Cliven Bundy and his armed states' rights supporters thwarted a federal government roundup of his cattle in southern Nevada in April.
