We were sent the following email from one of our valued readers who found it over at Delaware Open Carry. I haven’t been able to confirm the veracity of the story, but it sounds legit, so I thought I’d give it some further exposure.
Welcome to Amerikka, folks!:
I Stood My Ground
via Delaware Open Carry
[Carney's Point, New Jersey]
The fight has officially been brought to my front door
Last night I was out with a buddy of mine. I got a text from my wife that the cops and dyfs [Division of Youth and Family Services] are at the house and they wanna check out my guns and needed me to open my safe.
I’m instantly on my way.
I get in contact with [E]van Nappen [a lawyer] on the way. I explain the situation. I walk in my house and hand the phone to the first cop I see. Then direct all of em outside.
Dyfs got a call because of a pic on my son holding a gun.
They wanted to look around and check all my guns out, make sure they were all registered.
Obviously that didn’t go well because I refused.
I had Nappen on speaker phone the entire time so they had to deal with both of us.
They kept trying to pressure me to open my safe.
They had no warrant, no charges, nothing. I didn’t budge.
I was told I was being “unreasonable” and that I was acting suspicious because I wouldn’t open my safe. Told me they were gonna get a search warrant. Told em go ahead.
Nappen (my lawyer) asked me for the dyfs workers name. she wouldn’t give it. [I] asked for credentials and she wouldn’t show em. [I] tried to take a pic of her and she turned around real fast and walked away.
After a while of them threatening to take my kids, get warrants and intimidation they left. Empty handed and seeing nothing.
People it can happen that fast. Most people wouldn’t have stood up to them like I did.
