It can’t happen here. Unless we let it.
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.
Nor was the person who filed the false claim, nor any of the “officials” who responded to it.
Moore and his son describe the scene:
“And then, when they showed up, that was seriously gettin’ me mad about that one.” Good boy.
This is still the United States of America. Don’t ever, ever let them forget it. In the words of a pretty smart guy: Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.
