Proposed law would make it illegal to protect your body from being shot by police… even if they raid the wrong home

Responsible body armor Act

(NaturalNews) Not only do congressional Democrats want to take away your constitutional right to own a firearm, they also want to extinguish all methods of protecting yourself from being shot, even if it’s the police doing the shooting.

In case you missed it, a little more than a year ago Rep. Michael “Mike” Honda, D-Calif., introduced the inappropriately titled “Responsible Body Armor Possession Act,” which, of course, bans personal possession of body armor because, you know, that’s “responsible” (in the eyes of an authoritarian, maybe).

A Congressional Research Service summary of the bill says:

Amends the federal criminal code to prohibit the purchase, ownership, or possession of enhanced body armor, except: (1) by or under the authority of the United States or any state or political subdivision, or (2) enhanced body armor that was lawfully possessed before the effective date of this Act.

Defines “enhanced body armor” to mean body armor, including a helmet or shield, the ballistic resistance of which meets or exceeds the ballistic performance of Type III armor, determined using National Institute of Justice Standard-0101.06.

As reported by Blacklisted News, the legislation caused some uproar when it was introduced in January 2015, but has since died down, and is now no longer top-of-mind for most people. But you can bet that the bill’s sponsors and co-sponsors (there are six as of April 20) haven’t forgotten about it.

Only police will have them
