Dad: This Picture of My Son Holding a Gun Triggered a Visit from NJ Police, Family Services
The Blaze ^ | March 19, 2013 | Ashley Davis

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 Jersey’s Department of Youth and Family Services (DYFS). On Friday night, March 15th, two representatives from the state’s social services office (along with four local police officers) came to the Moore home and demanded to see the family’s firearms.

According to Moore’s lawyer, Evan Nappen (an attorney with considerable expertise in NJ’s very strict gun laws), the situation was “outrageous.”

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.

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.

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).

these government idiots go try and arrest Americans because of a picture on the Internet. government is so stupid and never works. these stupid imbeciles should realize that a picture is just a set of pixels which can be completely manipulated by a computer , MORONS.

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
many more

"demanded to see the family’s firearms"

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."

If someone hacks your facebook (or creates a fake copy) and posts a threat against a politician then they'll come arrest you. government idiots are idiots. also they should know a picture on the internet is just a set of pixels which can be completely manipulated by a computer.

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.

I don’t have Facebook (like you said, someone could create one if they wanted to)

for safety I put my name on just about nothing online.

I did not like the lack of privacy of the web, back in 1995 or 96 when I first went online and at that time I decided to keep it as private as possible.

of course I understand completely that a government agency can track just about anything, but no sense in giving anyone a free ride....

“...STAY OFF OF FACEBOOK!!!!”

That was my first thought as well.

Kids today will pay for posting pics of them being drunk and idiotic; people have lost jobs over this. There is no privacy anymore. Don’t give it away....

Personally, I love that picture (that boy is a cutie), and I can understand why the father would want to share it. But why not just print it out and mail it to your family? Even just the fact that we now see it on FR is proof why social media has a dark side.

Why is it people feel the need to have hundreds of strangers look at them or their family members and comment on it?

Once information is out, it’s out. No coming back from that.

DYFS is too stupid to know the last kid they’ll have to worry about is Shawn Moore. The ones they should worry about are the little gang-bangers who give a crap less about any gun law or DYFS agency.

I saw the father and son on Fox & FRiends this morning. Boy did they jump the shark on that one. He had all his weapons locked in a safe, and the authoritized said they wanted him to open the safe so they could register all his firearms. Glad he stuck to his guns.

The Federal Gov’t has issued warnings that Facebook is used by foreign agents to access and take over your computer.

And you will never know it.

This is NOT about ID theft.

I fully support the family’s action here but as I said before, anyone putting information of any kind about themselves or family on any public internet domain including but not limited to face book, twitter, all email accounts, etc. is a fool.

Bad advice. What you do in such a situation is that you grab a rifle, load it, then come out your front door, firing wildly over the cops heads. That’ll send then scurrying for cover. Saw that done in the movies lots of times.
