Is there any word for this other than lawless? The ATF raided Ares Armor in spite of a federal court order specifically barring them from doing so. At issue is the company's customer list which seems to the ATF's main interest. Ares claims this list is confidential and obtained a temporary restraining order. It is reasonable to believe that authorization to contramand a federal court order could only have come from the highest level of Eric Holder's Justice Department. It is apparent that Holder harbors contempt rather than respect for the constitution he has sworn to uphold.
This far more than a gun rights issue. This action is worthy of a banana republic and invites the question whether the courts are an adequate check on the powers of the executive.
