I shit you not in Australia body armor is considered a restricted weapon that the general public has no right to own. It's as big a crime being caught with a bullet proof vest as it is an actual illegally possessed firearm here.

You lucky Americans need to understand that when they say sensible gun laws based on the Australian model that's what they want for you too. You will no longer even have the right to any kind of self defense and the second you go all knifey spooney like the UK and start wearing chainmail they'll even ban it too. You are to be wholly dependent on the state and absolutely fearful of uprising against it too. That's the Australian model of helplessness they want for you.

You can use body armor to protect yourself against the tyrannical government. That's why the jews want it to be banned. Anything that will allow the public to be on equal footing with the government must be banned.

Yup. Similar to not being able to have a gas mask when there is a demonstration going on. They want to be able to tear gas you.

Maybe it has something to do with Ned Kelly - Australian badass who made his own armor out of steel plating and entered into a massive gunfight with authorities.

He's a national hero for being a cunt but he was a bit of a tard and forgot to protect his legs. Guess you can't expect much from criminal types though.

Don't worry that won't happen many of us in the US are already pretty fed up with government overreach. We will not give up our rights and we will not relinquish our firearms. Would you trust anyone who steals from you? Then why would you ever trust the government for anything. It consists of a den of thieves living parasitically off the backs of others.

Very few people gave up their guns, only 20% handed them in. Holding onto your guns won't stop your rights being stepped on, keep that in mind you need to have representatives that will defend them. Note that in Australia the people were fooled, they voted conservative then Howard turned around and took the guns away, against his own voter base.

You can't justify any of this, but when you consider the actual motives of those who seek power, it makes perfect sense.

Most gun laws are aimed at making civilians less effective combatants, rather than less dangerous criminals.

Exactly this. There's no other reason. It's equivalent to banning safety glasses or hardhats.

Before I rob a store, I always check local gun laws to make sure I'm not doing anything illegal.

Because this isn't about Bump Stocks or Body Armor.

This is about disarming the American public so the globalists can take full authoritarian control over this country.

These fuckers won't stop until you cannot own anything other than a musket.

Myself, and millions of others are prepared to take our ideology to the streets to take our country back by force.

If any of this passes you folks need to revolt. I'd come down from the (formerly) Great White North to help is it was feasible.

Hopefully the revolt will also include ethnic cleansing. It's easy to sweep racial divides under the rug of a violent revolution.

Body armor aids in the commission of crimes.

That's how they will justify it. Buy at least two sets now. Don't skimp on price. Find a model that has plates and get spare plates. Keep them in a stable temperature and humidity environment, where you also keep prep gear. This way, you can grab them, put them on, and evacuate to a safer location.

I've had good luck with these folks:

https://www.ar500armor.com/

My last order was a few years ago, so there may be a better supplier - but I had good luck with them. As I recall, they won't ship to CT but everywhere else is legal. I'll probably be making another order soon, for reasons that are a long story. So, if I remember, I'll write up a review of my ordering experience.

They have steel that will stop green tip, ceramic that will stop 30.06 AP, a lot of stuff really.

There are some relatively effective poor mans options out there as well. IIRC, there was a guy who made some out of marbles and epoxy. Heavier and thicker than Sapi plates, but it stopped 7.62. Yeah, it was compromised by being hit once, but so is all body armor.

Here they went after it because some moron had his buddy shoot him with a shotgun. Vest stopped the projectiles but broke all his dumb ass ribs.

Better still, find a non-humidity environment in which to store your armor and plates!

[–] TheBuddha 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

True 0% is nearly impossible and expensive, so I'd just suggest that it's a controlled humidity environment. Then, if nothing else, you'll at least be able to have a reasonable guess about any degradation rates for materials.
