“Like tears in rain…”

NO.  This post isn’t about the Harrison Ford dystopian Los Angeles film of thirty years ago.  (Sorry)

It’s about the film’s title – derived, I believe, from the name of the government officers tasked with ‘shutting off’ the androids who escape the outer worlds and come to Earth.  Because they are ‘dangerous’.

Someone who runs along the cutting edge of the blade.

I’m speaking about a company.  Cutting edge, as it were.  Ares Armor is such a company.  They produce ‘firearms’ in California, when many other companies are leaving the State, due to high taxation and over-regulation.  Well, not exactly firearms…

One of the things Ares Arms does is produce incomplete firearmsthose not required by law to be serialized and tracked by government.  For free citizens to do with as they wish.

As I said, cutting edge.  Below is the sign they put up…

ares signI don’t have any opinion about their legally-incomplete firearms (including AR15 and 1911 platforms) but I do have an opinion about local government trying to restrict their promoting legal business and their freedom of speech.  (From their website, below)

Ares Armor forced to defend their 1st Amendment Rights

SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA  – The Local Government of National City thinks it is acceptable to re-interpret their own city code to suite their political agenda if a message appears that does not suite their liking. They have chosen to attack us based on opposing political views. They have abused their elected positions in order to silence those who do not agree with them. WE WILL NOT BE REMOVING OUR SIGN. I WILL GO TO JAIL FIRST! If it is a fight they want, it is a fight they shall have.

– Dimitri Karras, CEO Ares Armor

CALL TO ACTION: We need your support to help get this story out. 

In our opinion, National City has not only violated OUR RIGHT to FREE SPEECH, but also OUR RIGHT to DUE PROCESS. Please help us fight back by spreading the word and putting heat onto the elected officials of National City. Below you will find their phone numbers and contact information, if you would be so inclined to let them know directly how you feel about their actions. We greatly appreciate your support in fighting Tyrannical, Would-Be Dictators.

To contact the National City Mayor, please call (619) 336-4236 or e-mail
To contact the City Council, please call (619) 336-4235 or e-mail

Please visit the link to the company’s website, and contact the ‘authorities’ regarding their attempts to stifle a legal business from operating and promoting their products.

I see no problem with them operating as a legitimate business.  If customers choose to violate the law, that’s their business!

(FTC – ARES Armor gives me nothing.  But, as yet another government bureaucracy you probably don’t even understand why I’m doing this.  Go away!)
