Beginning in the late 1960’s, Jason Davis‘ family began manufacturing inexpensive firearms in the Southern California region. Beginning with his grandfather’s business, Raven Arms, the family’s businesses grew exponentially with the additions of Davis Industries, Jennings Firearms, Bryco Arms, Republic Arms, Phoenix Arms, Sedco, and more. Two decades later, his family’s businesses dominated the handgun market, producing a substantial percentage of all handguns manufactured in the United States.
Success breads contempt, and the anti-gun movement soon began a propaganda campaign to demonize low income firearms and the manufacturers, dubbing the businesses “The Ring of Fire” based upon their geographic locations in Southern California.
Subsequently, municipalities passed laws that were designed and intended to prohibit the sale of inexpensive firearms – barring a whole entire socio-economic class from exercising their Second Amendment right to bear arms. Most of those laws have since been repealed, but their message was clear: if we do not stand up for our right to bear arms, that right will be diminished. Having worked as a firearms manufacturer during this period, Jason Davis joined in the fight by obtaining his law degree from Loyola Law School and representing a number of firearms manufactures, distributors, dealers, and associations in their ongoing campaign to effectuate the most fundamental right of all. By adopting the “Ring of Fire” label as his own, Jason Davis shows his support for his family’s heritage and wears “The Ring of Fire” logo as a badge of honor.
