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.

I see nothing wrong with that picture.

Agreed. His trigger finger is where it belongs. Good job, Dad!

I think at the very least, the accusers identity should be made known to Shaun Moore.
Didn’t we once have the right to face our accuser ?

IMHO pictures should be posted all over the net of the Gestapo agent that made the decision to raid that home. Expose the corruption.

The homeowner should immediately demand to know who that person is.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking for one minute that local police will not come to confiscate your weapons.

They are just waiting for their Bosses to tell them to ignore that crazy Constitutional warrant stuff.

When I saw that picture I immediately knew it wasn’t one of our glorious leader politician types....

Notice that ‘regular, trained’ people don’t ‘touch’ the trigger till they are ‘ready’ to pull it AND remember to take the lens covers off binoculars - especially when taking photo op type pictures.

Gee, you must be paranoid.

We have nothing to fear from our great benefactor, the US Government.

They would never try to take our guns.

They already take our children on the slightest tip. Of course, since that is the state you have nothing to fear.

“Its for the children.”

The children of sheep.

Now they want this message saved forever so they can determine what kind of nut case I am.

The problem is, it’s New Jersey. There is no reason to believe there aren’t scores of corrupt Democrat judges who would gladly sign a warrant.
No. I still like G. Gordon Liddy’s advice.

Would be interesting to know Governor Fat Boy’s take on this...

Pork Porkie is a big (and I mean BIG) gun control Nazi.

I’m sure many local LEOs, especially members of Oathkeepers, are very concerned about getting that order.

What is disconcerting is that I’m sure your statement holds true for quite a few as well.
