New Jersey’s governor is asking his attorney general to investigate the state’s visit to the home of a man who had shared a photo of his son holding a military-style rifle.

The state child welfare agency and local police went to the Carneys Point home of Shawn Moore on March 14 following what police say were anonymous calls expressing concern about the safety of a child.

Moore has said he believes he was investigated because of the photo he posted online of his son holding the gun he got for his 11th birthday. The weapon was a .22-caliber rifle made to look like an assault rifle. He says caseworkers were aggressive and the visit uncalled for.

No charges were filed.

Gov. Chris Christie governor says reports on the inquiry raise “troubling questions.”
