Gun dealer makes noise with "Obama's Blaster"

Posted: Updated:

OCEANSIDE (CBS 8) - An Oceanside gun parts dealer is getting national attention after posting a video online marketing a gun barrel assembly as "Obama's Blaster."

It all started with a YouTube video set to music showing the AR-15 pistol assembly.

People started commenting on the video, saying the name "Obama's Blaster" can be taken as a threat against the president. But the owner of the business Ares Armor says it was meant as a joke, and the ad in no way targets President Obama.

"The thought it was a clever name and it went well with our little joke. And it's fun to tick off our liberal friends once in a while," business owner Dimitrios Karras said.

The Secret Service reportedly is aware of the video.

In March, federal agents raided the same business and seized customer records as part of a criminal investigation. The raid is now the subject of a federal lawsuit.
