California gun parts store refuses to turn over customer list to federal officials

The owner of a California store that sells gun parts to build rifles from scratch is refusing to turn over his customer list to federal officials.

Dimitrios Karras, owner of Ares Armor in Oceanside, told Fox5SanDiego.com that Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents are investigating his business because it sells AR-15 lower receivers, which contain the gun's operating parts.

The company sold thousands of 80 percent receivers in with colors showing where the customer can drill, making it easier and cheaper to build. The ATF said the sales are illegal and demanded the company turn over the products and names of customers who purchased them, according to the report.

“They said either give us these 5,000 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,” Karras told the station.

ATF accuses Ares Armor of illegal gun sales in response to restraining order

District Judge Janis L. Sammartino of the United States District Court, Southern District of California issued an order Friday to prevent Oceanside's gun parts supplier Ares Armor from divesting itself of inventory and records subject to a temporary restraining order the court issued Tuesday.

Also included in the order was notice that the temporary restraining order did “not restrain lawful criminal proceedings,” as well as a modification of the briefing schedule ordering “the parties [to] fully address all of the facts and circumstances as alleged by one another."

Looking at the magazines, those jack boots had green tips in them. Steel core penetrators.

Another chapter in ATF vs. America. At least nobody died like at Ruby Ridge or Waco.

The “Administration” will simply redefine the law to make this illegal, as in “Obama Care.”

Basically, if you never bought a gun in your life because you were paranoid about guvmint thugs comin’ after you, you’re still screwed. Pretty soon they’ll be raiding FR for the true identities of anyone who even posted a pro-gun item. Tyranny is here.
