Judge: "Give up your guns or we take your child"

(World Net Daily)  -  When the state of Michigan asked William and Jill Johnson, a retired Marine and his tackle shop-owning wife, to be foster parents, they readily agreed.
After all, the child was their grandson, and the alternative was for him to go into foster care.
But during the course of the necessary paperwork for the placement, a local judge stunned them with the warning that they no longer would have all of their constitutional rights.
The judge explained bluntly: “We know we are violating numerous constitutional rights here, but if you do not comply, we will remove the boy from your home,” according to a complaint filed with the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan.
The case has been brought on behalf of the Johnsons as well as Brian and Naomi Mason, and the Second Amendment Foundation.
They name as defendant Nick Lyon, the director of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, for his agency’s draconian rules regarding foster or adoptive parents – and their possession of guns.
It alleges civil rights violations under color of law “for enforcing restrictions on the Second Amendment rights of people who want to be foster or adoptive parents.”
The complaint explains the rule first was introduced to the Johnsons by social workers, who said, “If you want to care for your grandson, you will have to give up some of your constitutional rights.”
They explained, when the Johnsons raised questions about their agenda, “there would not be a power struggle, that they would just take his grandson and place him in a foster home.”
