Family’s Home Raided over Facebook Photo of Child’s Rifle

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.

A Dept. of Children and Families spokesperson told Fox News they could not confirm or deny an investigation or raid had taken place due to government regulations.

    Under Obama, the 21st century Gestapo has come to our home towns! These heavy handed out of control police departments are just a small part of Obama’s internal army being armed and equipped with the latest weaponry and intrusive spy technology. The 4th amendment is officially defunct!

    I closed my facebook account when I learned that they were shutting down any gun related business’ accounts. It’s time for all freedom loving patriotic Americans to tell facebook to pound sand and close their accounts! Facebook has become another over-reaching arm of the ObamaNostra crime family!

    I have some advice for the low life who called on this family, if you or yours ever need help, don’t go to the
    ones who could have saved you and yours those bridges are gone forever. As it should be.
    We help our brothers and sister as OUR constitution tells US.
    God Bless

    This is our government’s strategy: go after the little guy, make a big fuss over whatever he did, send the feds to his house or workplace, hold him up as an example of what the government can do to people who don’t abide by their rules and regulations, then quietly back off when they are proven to be out of line, idiots and they don’t have a leg to stand on. No apology, no reimbursement for damages, they just back off and look for another little guy to harass and use as an example….

    New Jersey issues hunting permits to 10 year olds, so the idea that an 11 year holding a rifle is reasonable suspicion for Child Protective Services is obviously a pretextual search and should be ground for compensation.

    Why is the left so nonsensical, when it comes to guns?

    They act just like a fox with rabies, at the mere mention of privately held guns, just like Feinstein’s episode against the Texas senator! WOW!
    They want guns confiscation for us only but they will keep theirs!
    So how should we spell HYPOCRITE, easy Democrite!
    A new word for the folks at Webster.

    I see a huge law suit against the police (no warrant) and the child protective services agency. America, the police state, will continue eroding our rights and liberty until We the People push back very hard at these idiots.

    Taught both my daughters to shoot and drive younger then this kid, so that was abuse? Should see them now, the oldest works for a major league baseball team, the other was a pilot and manager of a major airlines, both have masters degrees and still shoot good and I’m not too sure about the driving, maybe car control?

    What, No Warrant?! I would warn them once to leave the property within 2 minutes, no “or else”, no hints, no nothing. Anyone on property 121 seconds later gets instant ventilation. Cops will shoot you dead for less w/o a warning. 1 warning is sufficient for a warrant-less search and criminal trespass. If the cops aren’t smart enough to heed warning and stupid enough to commit the crime, then they deserve to die. Let their boss explain to the family why they died: Sorry folks, your daddy/husband was breaking the law while deaf and stubborn. Yet they will lie for each other all the way to the grave. What will be told is, ” A crazed gun nut with an arsenal opened fire on the unsuspecting officers before the warrant could be served, they didn’t have a chance.
    The police make examples out of law breakers daily. We are at a crossroad where law abiding citizens must make examples out of law breaking cops.

    What can you expect? It was New Jersey! Armpit of the US.

  • DEANS

    AND WE PAY THESE SO CALLED GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES. I WITNESSED A STATE CHILD WELFARE WORKER LEAVE HER TWO KIDS STRAPPED IN HER CAR. I SAT THERE AND WATCHED FOR 20 MINUTES AND WHEN SHE CAME OUT OF THE STORE, I REALIZED SHE WAS A RELATED MEMBER, ALTHO DISTANT, OF MY FAMILY. SHE CAUGHT HELL FOR WHAT SHE DID. I CALLED THE STATE AND REPORTED HER WITHOUT GIVING MY NAME. SHE LOST HER JOB BECAUSE OF THAT, I SAY, GOOD RIDDANCE!
