Dad: This Picture of My Son Holding a Gun Triggered a Visit from NJ Police, Family ServicesMar. 19, 2013 11:23am Mike Opelka
Did this photograph spark a police action that tried to enter a New Jersey home without a warrant? Thatâ€™s the story being told on a website dedicated to â€œOpen Carryâ€ in the state of Delaware. The title of the story, â€œThe fight has officially been brought to my front door.â€

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