A New Jersey family got a visit from social workers after a picture of a young boy holding a gun was posted on Facebook.

The 10-year-old is seen proudly holding a gun his father gave him as a present for his upcoming birthday.

The weapon in the photo resembles a military-style assault rifle but his father says, it’s actually just a .22-caliber copy.

Social workers and police officers visited the home in carneys point last Friday and asked to see the guns.

The family says the officers left and nothing has happened since.

    Nice of you guys to ignore most of the facts. They demanded access to his house and gun safe without a warrant, and when advised by his lawyer not to allow them access, they threatened to take his child away because he was being uncooperative. At no point was the child actually in any danger, and at no point had either one of them broken any laws. Oh yes — the social worker also refused to provide their name and identify themselves. How about next time you include just a few more relevant facts?

    Sick of the Media holding back and not giving the facts. This is why we have Obama president not once but twice.

    These are example of low life cops who think they work for hitler. Obviously they have no class or intelligence. They and the social workers are obviously mentally retarded. What a bunch of idiots!
