I am sure that their reasoning is that a criminal might get body armor and then if they commit a crime and they are shot by a leo it won't have the desired affect on them, therefore NOBODY except the leos should be able to have body armor. This is the same reasoning that gun control nuts use to advocate confiscation of all firearms from private citizens. Because a criminal might get their hands on a gun and commit an illegal act, no private citizen should be able to own a gun to defend themselves, and with this law, they should not be able to buy something that might protect them if they shot by a criminal. Wanna bet that if a politician wanted to wear body armor, they wouldn't have any problem getting some?

If I understood that correctly any person can buy body armor, provided they are not felon and as long as the sale is face to face. I'm not sure if this is a slap at people who want to buy body armor or people who want to buy on line. Probably both:)

Say what? That's just silly. And I got to ask doesn't it seem like anything that might be used to protect
yourself is getting harder and harder to get?

Sounds like someone is going to have lamb chops for dinner

I have DKX armor, it's lightweight. Really great armor, perfect for off setting a plate carrier that may drag to the front from the weight of ammo. That's if weight isn't an issue, if it is then 2 plates will lighten up your overall load.

It's good to be as mobile as possible, and conserve energy as much as possible while being mobile.
