“Gun safes’ Bud Light”: Liberty Safe receives massive backlash for providing customer’s safe code to FBI
By Belle Carter // Sep 11, 2023

A prominent gun safe manufacturing company now faces massive backlash because it provided the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) with the password to a customer's safe at the law enforcement agency's request.

Outrage against the Utah-based safe manufacturer started September 4, when Keith and Kevin Hodge, commentators known as the Hodge Twins, posted the revelation on X, formerly known as Twitter, revealing that their friend was raided by the feds over J6.

"His name is Nathan Hughes and he's from Fayetteville, Arkansas. The feds called the manufacturer of his Liberty Gun Safe and got the passcode to get into it too. All for protesting at the Capitol over 2 1/2 years ago,' the post stated."

Hughes confirmed the story the next day, saying in a video that the gun safe manufacturer gave the FBI "a master code to get into my gun safe." He said: "Pretty crazy, didn't know safe companies would do that, so I feel like a lot of our gun safes are not actually safe."

Moreover, the FBI also allegedly turned off his security cameras and held his girlfriend at gunpoint.

Meanwhile, the company released a statement confirming they gave the FBI Hughes' code. "Liberty Safe was contacted by the FBI [on Aug. 30.] requesting the access code to the safe of an individual for whom they had the warrant to search their property."

It claimed it did so because it is devoted to protecting the personal property and second amendment rights of its customers and "has repeatedly denied requests for access codes without a warrant in the past," the statement read. "We do not give out combinations without proper legal documentation being provided by authorities."

The company also said in its statement that it "has long adhered to industry standards by maintaining a secure database of factory-set combinations" as a courtesy to customers who might need them for various reasons. However, effective immediately, existing customers may visit the website and double-check. They can "fill out the form to have records of their access codes expunged," it said.

But Liberty's X account continued to be bombarded with angry messages from users as it announced changes to its policies. As criticism erupted online, the company opted to disable comments on its social media posts. Collin Rugg, the co-owner of alternative news site Trending Politics, together with other conservative influencers, is now calling for boycotting and canceling orders from Liberty Safe.

"We have officially found the Bud Light of gun safes. Enjoy going out of business, @libertysafeinc," referring to the controversial beer brand that experienced a sad demise after pushing its "woke LGBTQIA ideologies" to the public.

Bud Light suffered substantial losses in sales after the Anheuser-Busch InBev brand partnered with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney earlier this year in a marketing effort that caused many beer drinkers to stop patronizing the alcoholic drink.

Sean Davis, co-founder of the Federalist, replied in response to Liberty's initial statement: "Absent a court order, you weren't required to give them anything. You voluntarily gave out a combination over a warrant, per your own release, that didn't apply to you or your property. Maybe start marketing your stuff as Bud Light storage."

Michael Seifert, founder of conservative online marketplace PublicSq., agreed, saying no safe company should ever have access to the property of their customers, let alone sell them out to the feds. "It's an unbelievable breach of privacy. Give them the Bud Light treatment," he said.

Moreover, Charlie Kirk, CEO of Turning Point USA, a conservative educational non-profit, did not mince words, stating, "Liberty Safe is an enemy to gun owners. They could have fought the warrant – like Apple did – instead, they buckled and bent over. Your guns are not safe with the @libertysafeinc. Boycott. Ridicule. Ruin their company."
