Firearms enthusiasts have a passion for life, a deep respect for individual rights and, above all else, a healthy sense of humor.
This was exhibited in spades on Jan. 4 by Dimitrios Karras, CEO of Ares Armor, an Oceanside, Calif. gun parts and accessories store. With all the recent debate centered on gun control, he decided to create a new website dedicated to news and discussion of Second Amendment issues. The name of the site he chose:
U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., is the author of a soon-to-be submitted draconian bill which would ban the manufacture and sale of assault weapons, high capacity magazines and institute a national firearms registry.
Click on SenatorFeinstein.com and you’re greeted with the following message:
“COMING SOON! Senator Feinstein’s Biggest Fan Page:
Gun owners strike back… This should be fun. Thats [sic] right Dianne your biggest fan site is going to be run by AresArmor.com…”
“It’s funny,” Karras told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “This is going to be an entertaining thing.”
According to Michael Bastasch, of the Daily Caller:
Karras said that he was frustrated when he saw how Feinstein and other members of Congress managed the commenters that criticize them on their Facebook pages, and that he wanted to have platform where people could say whatever they wanted.
“[Feinstein's] got a big mouth on her, she thinks she’s pretty much the queen of the state. She almost thinks she’s the queen of the country,” he said to the Caller.
Karras admitted to DC News that neither he nor his websites have been known for political correctness.
“What we’re most likely going to do with this is, literally leave it open-ended,” Karras told TheDC News Foundation. “We’re going to put up a few posts and everything like that, but we’re not going to be moderating any of the comments. So it’s one of those things where people are going to be able say whatever the heck they want.”
“My thing is I may not agree with what people have to say, but I’m going to defend to the death their right to say it,” he said.
Karras told DC News that he wasn’t stopping with Feinstein. “She’s not the only one that we registered,” Karras said. “She’s just the first one that we’ve released.” Sounds like maybe California’s other Democratic Senator, Barbara “Don’t call me ma’am” Boxer may be next on his list.
