It’s possible for wildlife officers to see this photo and use that photo to press charges against the individual.
Another example is a group of pictures of a gun owner showing off various firearms. That person later became a “person of interest” in an investigation and the photos were used against the show-off.
The most applicable example is postings by a gun owner declaring themselves ready and willing to defend themselves and family by use of firearms. The implication being that said person was aggressive, just itching to shoot an intruder.
Even an innocent photo here and there of you and your friends at the range or showing off your new addition to your collection can be used against you. Imagine an enterprising prosecutor, gathering dozens of photos with you and firearms posted over a long period of time, to make it seem like you’re gun crazy. …
A picture tells a thousand words and even when there’s no unlawful activity in your post, it may be misconstrued or misinterpreted, and used against you by law enforcement.
