CARNEYS POINT - Gov. Chris Christie 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 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 .22-caliber rifle he got for his 11th birthday. He says caseworkers were aggressive and the visit uncalled for.

No charges were filed and local police said the case was closed.

Gov. Chris Christie says reports on the inquiry raise "troubling questions."
