Tell escorted back -- -- on the docket today a certified firearms instructors home is raided.
After he posts one picture online of his son holding a rifle.
This is the picture Shawn Moore put up on FaceBook it shows his eleven year old son properly holding a rifle.
The boy has a New Jersey hunting license and recently passed the State's hunter safety course.
But someone saw this photo and thought it was grounds to call.
They showed up at -- New Jersey home along with police demanding to search his house Moore said.
Think again and he says they threatened to take his child away.
Joining me now to discuss at least we'll Fox News legal analyst and just -- war was a former prosecutor now defense attorney.
These this is crazy and they do that now they cannot you have an absolute right -- the Fourth Amendment.
To be free of warrantless searches and seizures and that's what this would love unreasonable they came they get it.
Late on a Saturday night they knocked on the door they scared of the hype you know -- was just when.
If you don't let us and if you don't let us see see your gun.
They -- seizure God's going to -- -- -- -- we've gotten you're saying we may take your child away they didn't even have a warrant when they asked and said you've got coming without a warrant that the the left and make and they never came back which tells me they knew they didn't have probable cause and that warrant.
And here is shot more than data FOX & Friends this morning this -- sound -- number one talking about what they wanted to do.
They wanted to go through the house make sure guns were not available to kids and once they went through the house they wanted to get in the my safe.
And they wanted to run a serial numbers on -- -- firearms and make sure they are all registered to me.
And catalog them.
Based on what John.
Are very difficult to defend those actions but let's -- what happened before that negative because if somebody sees a picture of a kid when they got on FaceBook that's not like looking at a picture of up at the puppies in a basket -- -- kid -- -- -- -- somebody picks up the phone and called the department of badly children's services.
That department is obligated.
To call the police whether it's right wrong or indifferent they're obligated to do that once the police get there to investigate did they go a little overboard in -- house.
Probably -- -- we don't know who but at this.
But they are not often I get -- I'd get I'd like Michael -- services and I say at least -- house.
A child being abused not that that would -- happen without him but if I do that then they have an obligation to show up at least -- house but this person would have called up -- said.
Look at his FaceBook photo op exam -- -- -- it's not like division of Taliban services didn't know what the complaint was based on.
But there is no crying that being committed here there's no abuse being committed here on what was he there wasn't it -- Appearance at this man.
House bases there were no grounds that the whole point made it there -- -- apps look at at ground at all and that's why would push came to show up.
They laughed and didn't come back what should've happened.
Okay that parenting may be putting that FaceBook picture up there I've got that call -- protective services have them give up call come on I'll have a cup -- What ever during the day at some point of convenient for both parties I mean this is ridiculous and the scare a whole -- Like -- that I I don't know I think that may be your judgment playing in the air and the judgment of some others but I don't know that that is bad parenting that the father is a firearms instructor.
He is certified firearms instructor NRA it -- safety officer -- hunter education instructed the child has a New Jersey hunting license he passed the State's hunter's safety course.
The gun was legal.
I don't see any reason to be on that photo for even the call the DC FS -- never -- -- follow up.
Donna but -- and you can't help any of those factors just from looking at the picture and anybody can call anybody can -- they -- picture other kid holding a god.
And let's let's be real we are all on edge because of sandy hook because of -- -- Where I had when it comes to kids and guns so the -- was it DFS has no no other option.
Well I don't let me let me provide some fodder for you -- because looking at the New Jersey -- says.
No person under the age of eighteen in this child is a Lebanese clearly under the age of eighteen in the photo we shall possess Cary.
Fire or use of firearm.
If he's in the actual presence -- a direct supervision of his father etc.
Or for the purposes of the competition -- target practice so but the lot is this kid cannot possess or carry this firearm.
Unless he falls within certain exceptions and so at least thirty CF may have had an obligation to go see if one of the exceptions apply what they -- It's pretty exactly it's pretty clear go to the companies taking that picture and -- assuming that at the bottom of the fathers and to that picture he was under my supervision might surveillance.
I'm a -- firearms instructor that's you don't look how -- told in the gonna factor that could explain in thirty seconds call over the.
Followed -- -- -- they went overboard -- -- they will be bored and just by the way so we're looking you can see that little box and that red is green where we're live in Jerusalem that press conference coming up in moments we'll take you there what happens we're also on verdict watch in Bell, California.
A lot is happening at this hour.
But I want it Kelly's court is still going on -- -- -- slightly know what the boxes up on the screen.
So OK I think broad agreement that need be maybe DC SF has caused for for a phone call and I didn't see it the law as written.
Is -- potentially violated.
But when they show up there when they show up there and demand to see the inside of the common is that the house -- guns get the serial numbers look inside the safe.
This is what the Gun Owners of America are afraid it is going to have ended -- -- gun control laws get it just plays right into.
Their worst fears about additional got -- In the worst example of that -- -- you're talking about the Fourth Amendment search procedure talking the Second Amendment gun ownership I mean it played together so beautifully in this case and Jonathan -- I guess we -- are on -- as a nation -- these horrible event but that doesn't mean you -- -- the constitution.
And -- I -- -- -- because President Obama and prime minister Netanyahu.
