Ares Armor is a gun store in National City in southern California, which has the support of the Oathkeepers, Sons of Liberty Riders, and Dr. Robert Newman, a non-partisan candidate for California governor.

For the past couple of weeks, the store was harassed by local and federal agents. So Ares Armor obtained a restraining order against any unlawful search and seizure of their store, inventory, and customer information.

Saturday, March 15, 2014, a rally in support of the gun store had been planned to begin at 12 noon in front of the store.

At 11:50 am, federal ATF agents in riot gear raided the store — breaking through the front door, and seized merchandise and other material from the store.

ATF is the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — a law enforcement organization within the U.S. Department of Justice.
