A restraining order against the BATFEIEIO!

Bet that chapped their ass.
The owner of an Oceanside store that sells various gun parts to build a rifle from scratch refused to turn over his customer list to federal agents.

Dimitrios Karras, owner of Ares Armor, said the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents were investigating their business, not for what they sell, but for the people who purchase their products.

More here:
Last week it was released that EP Armory was raided by the ATF. They are the manufacturer of the 80% Jigless Polymer Lower Receiver. An official statement has not been released by the company, but it is fairly clear now that this product is the key focus of their raid. Ares Armor has now announced that they were also targeted by ATF for the 80% Polymer Lower Receiver, which is not a firearm. In order to thwart a raid from ATF, which would confiscate product as well as customer records, Ares Armor has obtained a restraining order. You can see these documents directly below.

Well, that restraining order was even more useless than most, because ATF just walked right through it and raided Ares Armor anyway:

And it looks as if the judge amended the order so as not to obstruct a "lawful criminal investigation," which I read to men that ATF can do whatever the hell they please. Even though that's how all ATF's other WTF? moments started...
