Southern California gun parts and accessory dealer Ares Armor continues to inform customers and supporters as to the status of its operations following yesterday’s raid by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Ares Chief Operations Officer Jeremy Tuma posted an update Saturday evening to his Instagram account where he first posted the news yesterday afternoon that “ATF is currently executing search warrants on all of our locations.”

“We will be burning the midnight oil to assure we are fully operational by morning and that business goes on as uninterrupted as possible,” Tuma stated in last night’s message.

Per Dave Workman, who conducted a telephone interview last night with Ares CEO Dimitrios Karras for The Gun Mag, “federal agents ‘took almost 6,000 lowers’ [and] no arrests of any Ares Armor employees were made.” Supplementing that is a Facebook alert from the CalGuns Foundation advising “We have confirmed that the ATF has searched multiple properties in the Ares Armor/EP Lowers matter and have seized customer lists,” and reminding people approached by law enforcement to “Exercise your right to remain silent; Never consent to a search; Demand an attorney; [and] Contact The Calguns Foundation’s Help Hotline.”

    Wasn’t there a restraining order issued last week?

    • Shorty Stuff

      Yes, there was. But you know how der fuhrer’s gestapo trumps the judicial system, don’t you? At least, that’s how it’s done now under Obama and Holder’s regime.

    • GUEST

      Yeah, it’s like “PLANET OF THE APES” or something, eh?

    • Rattlerjake

      Yes but the ATF went to the same judge and got an Ex parte order and search warrant claiming that Ares Armor was doing other illegal activity. They will stop at nothing to enforce unconstitutional laws. This is only the beginning, expect to see raids on houses of those who are on the lists, possible “Ruby Ridge” or “WACO” type incidents, etc. I hope they try it in Missouri and a few other states that have just passed laws to arrest, prosecute, and jail any government agent enforcing illegal/unconstitutional gun laws. War may be on the horizon.

    This is why more and more citizens distrust their gov’s…..local,state and especially the feds.

    If this is true marshal law is next. Everybody get ready and be prepared.

  • tax man

    So when a Court tells the ATF they must wait for a hearing before seizing anything they go right ahead and break down doors and steal the information the court was protecting? Obama and Holder need to be tried for treason and executed in public! Shame on them. I sure hope many ATF officers end up in prison over this! I hope the Judge holds the entire federal government in contempt, including the phony Kenyan Obama, and then maybe we can deport his sorry arse.

    If they act like a bunch of mad, rabid dogs – they should be treated like a bunch of mad, rabid dogs.

    • Pablo Descartes

      Rhetorically speaking, what does the rancher do with a mad, rabid dog…

      ask old yeller…molon labe

    There is more to this story. It makes more sense what the ATF is doing, but it doesn’t necessarily make it’s actions any less threatening. Not after Fast and Furious anyway.

    Obama’s goons just continue to destroy law abiding Americans and the Constitution. We have to get rid of this jackal. He continues to divide the country and press the guilty until proven innocent.
