Ares Armor Tactical Store Threatened with Fines & Jail Time for AR-15 Sign
Freedom Outpost ^ | 2/24/2014 | Tim Brown

Posted on 02/25/2014 6:24:46 AM PST by Jed Eckert

Ares Armor is a small tactical company that operates a store in National City, California. Recently the town of National City disapproved of a sign displayed at the National City store location and told the store, "Take down the sign or go to jail. We do not approve of guns...or you."

The store has been in compliance with the law and was not doing anything illegal. So why is there a fuss? It's because of the guns and the message of freedom being promoted by Ares Armor.

Dimitri Karces is a Marine veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan and CEO of Ares Armor. His staff include other Marines veterans as well. ...........Read more at Freedom Outpost

National City is near San Diego. I googled it.

SOMEONE has a bee in his/her bonnet. This whole thing sounds VERY personal.

People in that town need to respond in force to not only get the government to back down, but force whoever threatened them to be FIRED

Backing down is not enough

"Take down the sign or go to jail. We do not approve of guns...or you."

So the CITY police do not carry guns? They do not carry .40 cal Glock 22's? They do not have a cache of M-16's?

What they do not approve is private, law-abiding citizens having guns. Only the state must have guns, and the people must cower in fear to assure their obedience.

God save America from the Democrat/Progressive/Liberal Christ-hating Nazi's who have already lied and cheated their way into control of much of our government.

“Take down the sign or go to jail. We do not approve of guns...or you.”

Finally some candor from the left. Like New York, California will eventually declare political dissidents second class citizens and attempt to banish or at least disenfranchise them.

Only one suitable response, "Molon Labe!"

But the key is to take on the apparatchiks, not their agents.

The store should sue the city for civil rights violations, of both the 1st and 2nd amendments.

Agreed. And present two options for the settlement when they win:

1) $5 million for the tyrannical violation of civil rights, and free enterprise; or
2) $1 million for the violations, and the immediate termination of the arrogant despot responsible.

Watch how fast the town fathers throw the would-be fuhrer under die autobus.

Store owner should respond:

“Show me the existing statute or policy that I’m violating, as I am unprepared to move to your whims.”

August 15th Update: Verdict for Marty’s civil suit came in, and he won! Verdict for the Plaintiff on all counts, for a rumored amount of 5 million dollars. Look for some nice renovations at T&T Gunnery soon. Way to go Marty. Sorry taxpayers of Nassau County, you’ll be stuck paying the bill.

Snap!!!

"Take down the sign or go to jail. We do not approve of guns...or you."

Uh, Lord Azzhole? Doing something you don't like isn't actually a punishable offense. Depriving someone of their Constitutional rights as a civil servant or elected official, IS, however, and I believe cuts through the legal immunity you receive when you're carrying out your duties properly. Assuming you've ever done that.

They didn’t even try to pass some ordinance banning it, they just bullied him.
