Lawmakers in New York have proposed one of the most tyrannical and utterly
worrisome pieces of legislation we’ve seen. They want to ban citizens from
having body armor to protect themselves from bullets. As no one has ever
beaten anyone to death with a bullet proof vest, the intentions behind this
bill are clear and have no other purpose other than making it easier for
government to kill citizens and harder for citizens to protect themselves
from bullets.

New York, who has some of the strictest gun laws in the country, now wants
to make it a misdemeanor and potential felony for people to purchase or
possess a passive means of resistance to bullets.

Unlike other attempts to ban body armor like we’ve seen in the past, this
bill does not grandfather people in who already own it. In fact, the bill
says that it must be turned over to the state for disposal, or you are
guilty. After the passage of the bill, citizens will have 15 days to turn it
in before they are declared criminals.

So?

Body armor has been illegal in
"gun rights!" Texas for years.
