Ares Armor Renews Support of Calguns Foundation

As one of their earliest dealers, we have been huge fans of Ares Armor and their great products. They have stuck it out in California and brought their own form of freedom to a state not so easily accepting. We are also big fans of Calguns as they fight the good fight to keep the 2nd Amendment relevant in California has legislators fight it at every angle. Here is the full press release on the combined efforts of Ares Armor and their support of the Calguns Foundation.

Ares Armor, a Southern California-based retailer of products that allow law-abiding gun owners to build legal firearms at home, has announced that it will renew its financial commitment to The Calguns Foundation, a gun rights advocacy organization which advances Second Amendment rights through strategic civil litigation, education, and other programs.

Ares Armor CEO Dimitri Karras discussed his reasoning for providing support to the Calguns Foundation, 
“(It was) the right thing to do for many reasons, not the least of which is that Calguns is leading the charge for Second Amendment rights in California. Taking on the Department of Justice and Attorney General Kamala Harris in case after case, The Calguns Foundation has shown that it’s not afraid to tackle the big issues. In these days of billionaire-funded anti-gun organizations, it is more important than ever that we have a strong, united, and unwavering front.”
He also pointed out the recent victory by Calguns in a federal Second Amendment lawsuit that partially overturned California’s 10-day waiting period by stating,
“When you’re able to persuade a Bill Clinton-appointed federal judge that the government can’t possibly justify a key gun control law like the waiting period, it’s a huge step forward for our cause.

Regarding the partnership, Calguns' Executive Director Brandon Combs notes,
"The support we’ve received from Ares Armor has been nothing short of extraordinary. We can’t thank Dimitri enough for his and his company’s ongoing efforts to advance fundamental individual liberties. Ares has been and will continue to be a key voice for freedom in our state.We are excited to continue working closely with Ares in our fight to secure the fundamental right to keep and bear arms.”
The Calguns Foundation ( is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that serves its members, supporters, and the public through educational, cultural, and judicial efforts to defend and advance Second Amendment and related civil rights.
