On March 13, 2014, the owner & CEO of Ares Armor Dimitri Karras came on The Pete Santilli Show to celebrate his success in stopping the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (BATFE) from threatening to raid his business to obtain his customer list. As Mr. Karras described in his interview, the BATFE had contacted him regarding their concern about certain "polymer" lower receivers which are used as a guide in properly manufacturing the part. The polymer receivers are 100% legal, but despite their legality the BATFE insisted that Ares Armor release the list of their customers who have received plastic receivers.
Although it's important not to make certain assumptions, it's pretty safe to say that the BATFE was not going to send Christmas cards to the customers listed on Ares Armor's list. Needless to say, Dimtri Karras refused to surrender his customer list voluntarily. He has maintained the constitutional and privacy protection of his customers, and on March 13, 2014, he was granted his day in court. The Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) is currently in full effect, and the preliminary injunction hearing is scheduled for March 20th.
Shortly after the TRO was ordered, the BATFE sought and received a search warrant in opposition to the TRO's mandate. The U.S. Government essentially moved towards ignoring the TRO, and trumping the order for the purposes of seizing property and information which was voluntarily offered to them.
On the morning of Saturday March 15, 2014, the BATFE conducted a heavily armed raid on all three locations of Ares Armor. Customers were treated disrespectfully, and one retail location had the front entrance destroyed. Video was taken of the BATFE's forced entry [Click Here]
Today, Sunday March 16, 2014 Pete Santilli interviewed Dimitri Karras to get his side of the story, and you definitely want to hear this exclusive interview from start to finish. Dimitri reveals the details of the entire ordeal dating back to the original contact with the BATFE leading all the way to the present day legal battle which he vows to fight on behalf of all of his customers, employees and especially his fellow Americans.
Please take note, despite the BATFE insisting that they be allowed to break down the door of Ares Armor (obviously these goons believe they are "fighting for our freedom"), the BATFE destroyed property at the expense of Ares Armor, shoved their tyranny in the face of Ares Armor customers, and violated almost every one of the first group of Constitutional Amendments at the expense of every American ---- Ares Armor is allowed to continue operating their business. We repeat, THEY NEVER SHUT DOWN ARES ARMOR. This was all about force, intimidation, and obtaining the customer list in violation of everything but their guide to tyranny, the "Patriot Act". The BATFE seized property, inventory and Ares Armor's customer list, and the rest of us are supposed to accept this.
