New Jersey police and Dept. of Children and Families officials raided the home of a firearms instructor and demanded to see his guns after he posted a Facebook photo of his 11-year-old son holding a rifle.

“Someone called family services about the photo,” said Evan Nappen, an attorney representing Shawn Moore. “It led to an incredible, heavy-handed raid on his house. They wanted to see his gun safe, his guns and search his house. They even threatened to take his kids.” Moore was not arrested or charged.

Have folks yet figured out that privacy laws protect government and not individuals?

I can’t wait until they start raiding the homes of fat people for posting pictures of themselves eating on their Facebook page.....

Surely Moochelle Obama would love that!

The essence of being a boy/man is learning how to handle dangerous or potentially dangerous things and NOT GET HURT. Tools, hatchets, guns, knives, fire, chemicals, boats, etc. Dad teaches his sons the proper and responsible use of these things. The boy doesn’t get hurt and enjoys being a boy.

Modern liberalism hates BOYS and anything about being a boy.

The father should be commended for teaching his son the proper and safe use of a firearm.

Is that the picture?

How could anyone at Child Services have been bothered by that?

The kid isn't the issue - a possible illegal magazine and/or unregistered "assault type firearm" (per NJ state law) is what they were fishing for.

That's a rimfire AR clone, but the lower reciever could be pre-ban and legal (which is probably why there was no warrant).

This is the Facebook photo that led to the police raid.

Moore took this photo of police outside his home.

From Fox News Radio: “You can’t be prosecuted for making an allegation of child abuse –even if it’s false,” she said”

A false and misleading report regarding children is acceptabel? Tell that to Scooter Libby.

This part is scary...residents need to change this law > ASAP.

The cops only balked because they knew they were being “watched”.

The same reason they object to being put on video while in action.

The DYFS types are always looking for a fight.

That kid is so obviously a happy, healthy and normal American kid that he drives the liberals nuts.

0bamaCare does have provisions for neighborhood monitors so it’s not at all unbelievable that pics of fat people eating would result in visits from the authorities.
