Liberty Safe has just become the Bud Light of safes.
As one of the largest gun safe manufacturers in the country, the company essentially threw away its consumer base when it gave a private citizen’s access code to the FBI during a raid on the citizen's home.
While FBI agents were arresting the man, they raided his home in Arkansas and contacted Liberty Safe to get an access code to his gun safe.
The man in question, 34-year-old Nathan Hughes of Arkansas, has been charged with a felony offense of civil disorder. Hughes has also been charged with misdemeanor offenses related to the protest at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
According to the DOJ, in surveillance footage, Hughes was wearing an Infowars-branded Space Force shirt, which Sara Gonzales believes they included to make him seem “automatically guilty.”
The DOJ also claims that he “helped other rioters physically fight police.”
Conservatives across the board are not happy.
“If he physically fought police, then you would just say ‘he fought police,’ but how did he help other rioters do that? I’m not quite clear, maybe he brought them a cup of water, thus destroying our sacred democracy,” Gonzales quips.
Liberty Safe released a statement saying, “Our company protocol is to provide access codes to law enforcement if a warrant grants them access to a property. After receiving the request, we received proof of the valid warrant, and only then did we provide them with an access code.”
Liberty Safe also denied knowing any details surrounding the investigation and claimed to be “devoted to protecting the personal property and 2nd amendment rights” of its customers.
