I oppose ban on body armor!

 

While we are in the midst of escalating terrorist attacks on American soil, Congressional representatives Alcee Hastings (D-FL), Robin Kelly (D-IL) and Danny Davis (D-IL) take aim not at your ability to possess a firearm, but rather, to protect yourself from criminals and terrorists who own them.

 

HR 378, dubbed the Responsible Body Armor Possession Act, would make it illegal for civilians to own “enhanced body armor” such as helmets, shields or armor plates that meet or exceed Type III protection. The bill would exempt law enforcement officers and other government officials.body armor

The new law would still allow Americans to own Type I and Type II protection, which are designed to stop calibers ranging from .22 caliber to .357 Magnum respectively. Type III body armor is designed to stop higher velocity hand gun rounds like a high-velocity 9mm or .44 magnum and rifle rounds like the AK-47′s 7.62x39mm. Type IV, often reserved for special law enforcement response teams, is capable of stopping even armor piercing rifle rounds.

 

How naive can these people be? So now we want to take away Americans ability to defend themselves, passively.

I oppose such a ban and would not enforce it in Berkeley county as your next sheriff.
