A North Jersey priest was recently accused of pointing a gun at an 8-year-old boy, but there's more to the story than you think.

Do you think this story has been blown out of proportion?

Pauline, who called from Whiting, said this exaggeration is the fault of both the prosecutor and the media, and the media needs more accountability to avoid sensationalizing future stories.

Mike from Hillside said that the prosecutor has a case if the weapon involved could chamber a bullet.

Jack from Easton said this sounds like an overreaction. He also noted that in most states antique guns aren't even considered firearms, and can be purchased without a license.
