Proposed Bill: FBI to Regulate Sale of Body Armor
Russ Chastain 08.13.19
If you thought government overreach and regulation couldn’t get any worse, you’re wrong. And that is always the case. This time they’re after your body armor, because an armorless citizen is easier to control?
Five years ago, I told you about a proposed ban on private ownership of body armor. Thankfully, it died on the vine. But Democrats still want you unprotected; Chuck Schumer reportedly “says he’s introducing legislation to require the FBI to regulate the sale of body armor in the U.S.A.”
Sen. Chuck Schumer said Sunday that the legislation would require the [FBI] to set standards on who would be eligible to purchase bullet-resistant vests and other body armor.
The New York senator says there would be exceptions for law enforcement and other public safety professionals.
Schumer says he’ll introduce the bill after the Senate returns to Washington in September.
The legislation is aimed at trying to curb the sale of body armor, which has been used by assailants in mass shootings. The push comes a week after a [criminal] wearing body armor killed nine people in Dayton, Ohio.
The FBI didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
Government wants you defenseless and unable to resist its authority, and this would be yet another step in that direction. I suggest you remain vigilant and strongly urge your Senators to oppose such nonsense.
