Pic of Kid & Hunting Gun Prompts Police/CPS Raid on Home

boy  with rifleLast year a young friend won a .243 hunting rifle. He was thrilled and an excited mom posted a picture of the young lad with his prize on Facebook. (His face is blurred for his privacy.)

Thankfully, they do not live in New Jersey.

This week a similar aged youth received a .22 rifle for his birthday. His photograph was also shared with the family.

Imagine their surprise when an anonymous phone call alerted both police and Child Protective Services causing a police response to the family home.

 

Fortunately, the father in this incident knew his gun rights and was astute enough to get his lawyer on the phone while the police and CPS were there, leaving them with a fairly innocuous end result. But just imagine if this happened to you or me and we did not have an attorney on speed dial? Could we lose our children, even for just a day, due to an over zealous enforcement agency?

Most everyone agrees that there is much that should be done to monitor guns in the hands of children and yet this overreaction seems to indicate that there are many with a complete intolerance of guns in private homes. Perhaps it is the difference between urban and rural lifestyles or perhaps it is a knee jerk reaction to recent gun tragedies. But it also may be that the agenda of the Obama administration is to remove all guns from homes and some enforcement/protection agencies are overzealous in their desire to promote it.
