Skip to comments.Dad: This Picture of My Son Holding a Gun Triggered a Visit from NJ Police, Family Services
Posted on 03/20/2013 3:19:24 AM PDT by Daffynition
The young man in the photo is the 11-yr-old son of Shawn Moore. The gun is a .22 rifle, a copy of the AR-15, but a 22 caliber. The photo was posted on Facebook by a proud father. That Facebook posting apparently triggered an anonymous call to New Jerseys Department of Youth and Family Services (DYFS). On Friday night, March 15th, two representatives from the states social services office (along with four local police officers) came to the Moore home and demanded to see the familys firearms.
According to Moores lawyer, Evan Nappen (an attorney with considerable expertise in NJs very strict gun laws), the situation was outrageous.

I am not surprised at this.
Someone’s about to get paid a settlement and the others are about to get pie in their face and suspended or fired so not all was in vain...: )
This is what is comin’ down the pike for us. We need to think about how we’ll handle a similar scenario.
Do you think that a state employee will actually be fired?
Never.....neither will his/her supervisor.
But on a more pragmatic note...
...STAY OFF OF FACEBOOK!!!!
Another rebellion seems to be brewing.
Lynette...I already have a picture in my mind of what she looks like.
These places like DYS are populated entirely by liberals, usually not just the bleeding heart kind, but the radicals. A real conservative couldn’t do that job.
Under every socialist regime, neighbor was turned against neighbor.
Nobody knew who they could trust or who would try to curry favor with the ruling elite by turning-in a family member.
Sometimes, the reward was a better job, house or car. Other times, the reward was some extra food.
There is no settlement. No pie in face, no suspension or firing. Actually, the officers involved will be commended and accommodated, for forward thinking coummunity service. And, then move on, to a real travesty of tragedy. Rinse and repeat.
Sue their arses!!!
When two or more (Fed agencies) gather in his (Satan) name...there is no love.
This is a perfect example of how that works. Hopefully they won’t come back.
Go to Fort Knox and pose your 5 yr old in front of a Tank while visiting the Patton Museum and post it on Facebook and title it - “just bought a working and fully functional battle tank’...and see who shows up!
Or better yet - wait until they have the Knob Creek gun shot out next month - and pose with a fully automatic machine gun!
These whole hype over holding a rifle no matter what caliber is stupid and out of control...
Soros’ reward for turning on his fellow Jews was to get rich enough that now he owns the democrat party (by his own admission), thinks he’s God (by his own admission), and believes he has the duty of destroying America and capitalism (by his own admission).
just a few examples of recent stories shows that government/socialism doesn't work.
1. gov funding global warming hoax for decades
2. gov schools suspending kids for chewing poptarts into “shape of gun”
3. trying to arrest people because of a pic on the internet
4. 1.5 million $ gov grant to study why lesbians are fatter than gay men
They'd have a cat over this!!!
Politely ask, "May I see your search warrant?", followed by "What am I being charged with?", followed by "Please give me your badge numbers so that my lawyer can sue you into oblivion and so you can be charged with using your government position to violate my civil rights."
worse yet if someone posts on the Internet that you threatened to buy a 42 oz big gulp then they'll come and get you.
this is America, the land of the free, gov by the people? I think not ,democrats have ruined everything
Message to all government idiots:
See a picture on the Internet could be fake or manipulated by a computer and is no reason to violate individual rights, now go do something useful and ban yourselves.
