America’s leading manufacturer of firearms safes has been promised the “Bud Light Treatment” by social media users after the company posted to X – formerly Twitter- admitting that it allowed federal authorities to access a customer’s safe.
Payson, Utah-based gun safe manufacturer Liberty Safe issued a statement Tuesday evening noting that despite their actions, they were “committed to preserving customers’ rights, and remain unwavering in those values.”
Per Newsweek, the “safe belongs to Nathan Hughes, 34, of Arkansas, who has been charged with felony civil disorder and several misdemeanors in the January 6 siege on the U.S. Capitol. The company added that it was unaware of any details surrounding the case and that it has repeatedly denied requests for access codes when a warrant wasn’t present.”
Hughes appears to be friends with the Hodge Twins, a duo of conservative personalities who have a show on the network of conservative commentator Steven Crowder. The Hodge Twins shared a video earlier this week of the FBI raid on Hughes’ house.
Political commentator Justin Hart called the raid by the FBI “overkill”, and encouraged X users to review the FBI complaint filed against Hughes late last month and draw their own conclusions.
Amid an onslaught of social media backlash, Liberty Safe also turned off comments on the post which acknowledged their actions in complying with federal law enforcement.
Still, that didn’t keep X users from memeing the company using the likes of Bud Light and Dylan Mulvaney.
Other firearm safe manufacturers have also chimed in on the controversy, even though they have shied away from mentioning their competitors by name. Syracuse, New York-based manufacturer SecureIt Gun Storage noted in a release issued Wednesday afternoon that their safes are “not built with any override system.”
