Ares Armor Owner Resists ATF Intrusion
Randolph County gun owners,
We have been quite lucky to live in a state where most measures of gun control have floundered in committee.
But not everyone is so lucky, like the folks in California.
As most of you know, the law abiding gun owners of California have been hit hard with ridiculous gun regulation that does nothing to make the people safer, but is solely designed to disarm.
Now the folks out there are being harassed by the authorities.
A couple of weeks ago, the story broke about the harassment by authorities of National City against Ares Armor, a gun shop and tactical gear supplier. The harassment was in regards to their business sign, which was not in violation of any code, but the city wanted it removed because it had the image of an AR-15 on it.
Ares Armor has been fighting it, but the appeals are costly.
Now, we hear that the ATF has been harassing them, demanding they turn over all information about customers who had purchased their 80% lowers, which are perfectly legal components for the custom build of AR-15s. If the company refuse dot do so, the ATF threatened to shut them down. The company's owner has filed a temporary restraining order to keep them from confiscating their property, but this is only a short term reprieve.
Remember, just because it's in California doesn't mean it doesn't effect you.
