Dimitrios Karras [above] isn’t shy about coming forward, as the Brits are wont to say. The Ares Armor CEO has been fighting the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (and Really Big Fires) ever since the agency SWATted his digs re: Ares’ 80 percent AR lowers. Karras has now expanded his fight to defend his/our Constitutional rights and, lets face it, generate publicity/sales, to a new front: the San Diego Sheriff’s Department. Karras is pissed that the SDSD has deleted his posts on their Facebook page because the comments . . .
“point out San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore was the ‘Agent in Charge’ at Ruby Ridge.” Specifically . . .
San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore was the “Agent in Charge” at Ruby Ridge. A woman, Vicki Weaver (who was unarmed and holding her infant child), was shot in the head by a Federal Law Enforcement Officer (Lon Horiuchi) under Bill Gore’s command. ‘Shoot on Sight’ combat orders were issued against American Civilians. This woman posed no threat to Bill Gore or his officers.
In case you didn’t figure it out, Karras doesn’t mince words, calling Gore the “Murdering Sheriff of Nottingham” [press release below]. Nor is he unaware that his lawsuit has a snowball’s chance in Hell. But hats off to Karras for spending his own money to question authority and tell the truth about Gore and his anti-gun regime.

SUBJ: Law suit against the Sheriff’s Department over Facebook censorship
DATE: October 28th, 2014
I have filed suit against the San Diego Sheriff’s Department!
Facebook and the 1st Amendment: When a government entity exerts dominion over a particular space and then designates that particular space as a public forum they cannot arbitrarily violate people’s right to free speech in that space.
- Facebook is a private entity and therefore they can arbitrarily censor if they so choose.
- An individual user of Facebook is a private person and can arbitrarily censor their own page if they so choose.
- A government entity that uses tax dollars to set up and maintain a Facebook page as a designated public forum cannot use more tax dollars to then violate the 1stamendment rights of speakers in that designated public forum through arbitrary censorship.
Imagine if you were told that because the government owned a sidewalk, you were forbidden from criticizing them while walking down it. Then further imagine that they use tax dollars to hire a security guard to ensure that you may never walk down the sidewalk again because they previously found the words you spoke to be “uncivil”.
Who cares about censorship on Facebook: Civil liberties are being eroded at an alarming rate. If you allow them an inch, they take a mile! When tax dollars are being spent with the aim of curtailing our natural rights, we have a problem. No matter how small the violation may seem, I feel it is our duty as American Citizens to call them out on EVERY single thing they do to further degrade our freedom!
History of Sheriff Gore: San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore was the “Agent in Charge” at Ruby Ridge. A woman, Vicki Weaver (who was unarmed and holding her infant child), was shot in the head by a Federal Law Enforcement Officer (Lon Horiuchi) under Bill Gore’s command. ‘Shoot on Sight’ combat orders were issued against American Civilians. This woman posed no threat to Bill Gore or his officers.
What Happened: The San Diego Sheriff’s Department made a post on their page in reference to child safety. I then commented on an issue that I felt had to do with child safety. My comments were in reference to an unarmed woman, holding her baby who was murdered by Federal Agents. These Agents were under the command of the illustrious Bill Gore and assuredly were following orders that he emplaced! When she was shot in the head, her limp body fell to the ground and her baby fell with her, smacking against the floor. Clearly, this is not a safe thing to happen to an infant.
My comments were immediately censored. I then began investigating and noticed a pattern of behavior in which the San Diego Sheriff’s Departments Facebook page actively censored any reference to Bill Gore’s involvement in this murder. I was banned and am no longer able to participate in the discussions that occur on this public forum.
I called the Sheriff’s Department and was told by the “Facebook Administrator” (I pay her salary through my tax dollars) that she knew who I was and that I was no longer permitted to engage in public discussion on this forum.
I then wrote a rather poignant letter to Mr. Gore himself outlining the constitutional violation and demanding that I be permitted (like all the other “civil citizens”) to engage in the discussion on this designated public forum that I, as a tax payer, am funding the maintenance of.
The Murdering Sheriff of Nottingham has failed to respond.
I, through my attorney’s Scott A. McMillan and Alan Beck, have filed suit against the San Diego Sheriff’s Department in hopes to curtail their governmental misconduct.
Lost Causes: When I returned from Iraq, the news repeatedly stated that the war was a lost cause and that it was all for nothing. I can tell you this, the blood that was spilled on those streets, was real. I have marked into my flesh “to the heroes of lost causes” lest I ever have the audacity to forget their sacrifice.
It matters not how desperate your cause. It matters not how trite or how insignificant it may seem.
The many whose blood has soaked the ground, deserve a better homage than the overbearing government that we are now so “blessed” with. Our society has become far too comfortable. It is sad that our comfort and our security have become more important than our freedom.
No matter how small, fight them on EVERYTHING they do wrong! Enough is enough!
