Facebook Photo Results In Raid Of Gun Instructor’s Home


Shawn Moore, a firearms instructor, posted this photo of his 11-year-old son on Facebook, and it resulted in a visit from the New Jersey Police and personnel from Family Services. The gun the kid is holding is a .22 rifle, a copy of the AR-15, but a 22 caliber.

Apparently someone saw this photo on the social media site, Facebook, and notified New Jersey’s Department of Youth and Family Services. The alert resulted in two representatives from the state’s social services office (along with police officers wearing bullet proof vests) knocking on Moore’s  front door and demanding to see the family’s firearms.

Moore’s lawyer said the visit from authorities was “outrageous.” However, we ask, what do you think about the visit to Moore’s home? Was the visit just or was it a case of over reacting? In recent years, we have seen so many kids bring guns to school and injure or kill their peers .Perhaps this photo scarred others, thus they called authorities.



I think the lesson we can all learn from this incident is this—watch what you post on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram because you never know who may be watching.
