Liberty Safe, a popular gun safe maker, gave one of its customer’s access codes to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) last week, the company revealed. The FBI requested the code in connection with a raid on the customer’s home over his alleged participation in the Jan. 6 Capitol storming.

In a statement posted Tuesday on X, formerly Twitter, Liberty Safe said it turned over “the access code to the safe of an individual for whom they had a warrant to search their property.”

“Our company protocol is to provide access codes to law enforcement if a warrant grants them access to a property,” the company wrote. “After receiving the request, we received proof of the valid warrant, and only then did we provide them with an access code. Liberty Safe had no knowledge of any of the details surrounding the investigation at the time.”

“Liberty Safe is devoted to protecting the personal property and 2nd amendment rights of our customers and has repeatedly denied requests for access codes without a warrant in the past,” Liberty Safe continued. “We do not give out combinations without proper legal documentation being provided by authorities.”

“We regularly update our policies to ensure both compliance with federal and state law and reasonable consumer privacy protections within the law,” the company added. “First and foremost, Liberty Safe is committed to preserving our customers’ rights, and we will remain unwavering in those values.”

Liberty Safe’s statement triggered intense backlash on X.

“I just ordered a $7000 liberty safe on Saturday. A Lincoln 50 with all the fixings. I am making a call tomorrow to cancel,” podcaster The Quartering wrote.

“Enjoy bankruptcy, traitors,” veteran Jack Posobiec posted.

“This was not a lawful order; it was merely a request. No warrant to search your property requires a safe manufacturer to help law enforcement execute that warrant,” Libertarian Party of Delaware wrote.
