Liberty Safe Company Hands Over Codes to the FBI

America's #1 Safe Manufacturer Just Became the Budlight of Gun Safe Manufacturers...

Liberty Safe Company Hands Over Codes to the FBI
Go Woke Go Broke

So What Happened

Liberty Safe Posted on their Twitter (now X) and Instagram a statement. The statement reads as follows.

"On August 30, 2023, Liberty Safe was contacted by the FBI requesting 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 the property. 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 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. 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. First and foremost, Liberty Safe is committed to preserving our customers' rights, and we will remain unwavering in those values."

Nathan Hughes is the Individual that the Warrant was For

Now I know what some of you are thinking... He must have been selling drugs or possibly trafficking. Something really nefarious, right?

Hughes, who had "distinct notches at the top of his ears," was identified by someone or something.. He "Engaged in violence in the Lower West Tunnel on January 6, 2021," according to a Statement of Facts from the FBI. Yes, that is a real statement from the FBI. This whole story is opening a new can of worms to the Orwellian type of society we have today.

Liberty Safe Backdoor Access

Once America's #1 Safe Manufacturer is no longer considered number one. A boycott is currently brewing. Liberty Safe gave the FBI the owners' codes, so now everyone knows their product is not really secure.

This leaves many of us with more questions. See, this is even larger than the main story. I strongly disagree with handing over combination codes simply because a Warrant is placed on an individual. What did the warrant say?

Did they know about the safe beforehand? If not, then did Liberty willingly hand over this information without specifically having to? Monomoy Capital Partners LP, the company's owner, didn't give any pushback!

If Liberty can hand over these codes in a matter of minutes, what's to stop a major data breach? Why would a company like this keep all the codes and combinations to begin with? This doesn't sound very "secure" to me.

Who Owns Liberty

Monomoy Capital Partners acquired Liberty Safe in 2021. Liberty Safe Stock Symbol is now trending on Google, Twitter, and every social platform you can name.

People want to know who is responsible for making these decisions, and they have every right to know. They are a private investment firm, so finding further details on this company can be a little tricky. We won't get to see a massive stock plunge on this company, but consumers are voting more with their dollars, and I'm sure Liberty will get the message loud and clear!

Who has the Best Gun Safe?

Now that this story has spread across the nation, it leaves people concerned and confused. Fort Knox Gun Safe is rising on Google trends, but are you choosing it out of anger and fear? Consider if it's the best option for you.

You may be surprised, but in many cases, you can call the manufacturers to get your combination. This means the government can also call the manufacturer to get your combination or code.

Some of these digital locks even have extra master key codes to get in. Think of this as a really fancy garage door opener. Not all companies will save these combinations and codes, but they are few and far between. Your number 1 mistake will be buying any brand that can be found in a big box store.

Already, as far as safety goes, this is a major red flag. These companies are great at marketing but inferior when keeping your valuables safe. If you need a professional safecracker to help you open your safe, it likely means you have a pretty good one.

Top 3 things to consider when purchasing your safe.

#1 Always use a combination safe. You can change the combination code at home, even if the box store or company already has it on record. Do this yourself, and do NOT have the store or manufacturer do it for you. Find instructions in the user manual or online FAQs to learn how to do this with your safe.

#2 Do not trust Safe companies that do their own "Safety Ratings." You need to find a Safe that has a UL Rating. Most big box store safes can not pass these standardized tests. You can learn more about Burglar Ratings here (

#3 Fire ratings are the next most important thing to consider. Again, you can not trust private tests and ratings for this. It's great for marketing but not real-world situations.

UL Ratings also apply to Fire ratings! Personally, I recommend a safe that has a 2-hour fire rating at the bare minimum, but there are higher classifications. You can learn more about those classifications here (

In this evolving landscape of personal security, we strongly urge consumers to stay informed and prioritize their own privacy and protection. Being responsible for ourselves is difficult, but I believe it to be worth it. In a world where security is an ever-growing concern, be sure to do the research before making any major purchases. You may need to pay more initially, but if it provides better protection, I would choose it.

We have seen repeatedly when a company has a data breach. Just imagine a breach like this... With a few clicks of a mouse and paying for a little extra data, it seems anyone could have access to your safe if this data fell into the wrong hands.

Gun owners across America should also feel concerned about this story. Come and Take It is a nice slogan to have, but now we know they can literally come and take it. If laws were to change rapidly, they would have almost full access to what you have.

Everyone is waiting for that knock on the door, but in reality, that likely won't happen. They know you have a job and a family to take care of. They will take it when you are busy elsewhere.

If you are in the market for a New Safe, I have a past article that could be helpful to you.
