Despite a judge’s restraining order… Obama’s lawless ATF still BREAKS INTO A PRIVATE BUSINESS TO SEIZES ALL CUSTOMER RECORDS.
The owner of a California store that sells gun parts to build rifles from scratch refused to turn over his customer list to federal officials.
So Obama’s ATF broke in and took all of the customer records anyway.
This video was taken on March 15, 2014, at National City Ares Armor location.
Here is background on the story from earlier this week. FOX4KC reported:
The owner of an Oceanside store that sells various gun parts to build a rifle from scratch refused to turn over his customer list when he was raided by federal agents Wednesday.
Dimitrios Karras, owner of Ares Armor, said the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents were investigating their business, not for what they sell, but for the people who purchase their products.
Karras said the ATF threatened to shutter their business if they didn’t hand over the names of 5,000 customers who have purchased an 80 percent lower receiver (the base) for building an AR-15.
It is legal to build a rifle from scratch without serial numbers only if the base is manufactured to ATF specifications. The base is not considered a firearm if it’s sold separately.
A manufacturer made an 80 percent receiver in plastic with a different material and colors which show exactly where the customer can drill making it easier and cheaper to build. The ATF said it is illegal.
The ATF sent stores, including Ares Armor, letters demanding they turn over the products and names of customers who purchased them.
“They said either give us these 5000 names or we are coming in and taking pretty much anything – which is a huge privacy concern and something we are not willing to do,” said Karras.
Karras’s attorney informed the ATF to pick up the receivers Wednesday morning at their Oceanside location, but the inventory was not the issue. The store owner said he will not comply with turning over their private client list.
The local sheriff overrules the ATF and should have been called (but I doubt the local Sheriff is aware of that and I doubt that they’d want to “get involved” because they’re probably WEENIES!
I decided to write to my local Sheriff to see how they’d handle it, citing this:
They ignored the restraining order? Laws mean nothing to them!
They are forcing people to go into the “gun running business” vs. buying legally at a gun store.
Wait! I just thought about this. charge a little more for delivery.
Keep the full store stock of guns stored in an “un-disclosed” location… keeping only a bare minimum at the actual store.
They will have to get sneaky but it can be done.
