New Bill In Congress Would Ban Private Citizens From Owning Body Armor

by Michael Snyder, Economic Collapse Blog:

A new law that has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives “would prohibit the sale, transfer or possession of military-level body armor by civilians”.  In other words, private citizens all over the entire nation would be permanently banned from owning body armor if this bill gets passed and signed into law. The bill that I am talking about is H.R. 5344 (The Responsible Body Armor Possession Act), and you can view the proposed legislation for yourself right here.  The driving force behind this new law is Democrat Mike Honda from California.  To Honda, it doesn’t matter that large numbers of very responsible Americans have purchased body armor to protect themselves and their families in a society that is rapidly decaying.  Instead, it makes perfect sense to Honda to ban body armor because “access to military-grade body armor emboldens criminals and mass shooters to act.”  And Honda wants to make possession of body armor a criminal offense with a penalty of up to 10 years in prison.  This is absolutely crazy, and it is yet another example of the “police state mentality” that is so prevalent among our politicians these days.

When I first learned about this new law, I could hardly believe it.  But it is actually true.  The following is an excerpt from a news story about the introduction of this new bill

Rep. Mike Honda, D-San Jose, has announced legislation that would block civilians from accessing military-grade body armor to prevent criminals from using them in gun battles with law enforcement.

Honda, speaking at a news conference in San Jose Wednesday morning with police chiefs and the district attorneys and sheriffs from Santa Clara and Alameda counties, said his proposal would discourage criminals from wearing enhanced body armor to commit mass shootings.

“This bill will keep military body armor out of the wrong hands,” Honda said. “It would ensure that only law enforcement, firefighters and other first responders would be able to access enhanced body armor.”

Fortunately, it is incredibly tough to get just about anything accomplished in Congress these days, so the odds of this bill ever becoming law are probably pretty low.

But without a doubt those that are attempting to systematically disarm the American people will just keep on trying.

And we need to be vigilant, because history has shown what happens when entire populations are disarmed.  All we have to do is look back at the millions that were killed under Nazi Germany or the tens of millions that were killed under the communist Chinese.

Of course one of the greatest examples of this phenomenon was what happened under Joseph Stalin as Simon Black recently explained…

By the late 1920s, Joseph Stalin became the unchallenged leader of the Soviet Union after having eliminated his opposition.

He topped it off in 1929 by serving a decisive blow to anyone that would dare to oppose him by outlawing private gun ownership in the country.

From that year on until 1953 when Stalin died, it’s estimated that more than 20 million Soviet citizens that were seen as a threat to the country’s leadership.

Many Americans are tempted to believe that it is impossible for that kind of tyranny to happen in our day and age, but the truth of the matter is that America is becoming more like Nazi Germany with each passing day.

For example, the “Department of Homeland Security” recently raided dozens of families all over the nation because they “imported unsafe vehicles“…

Jennifer Brinkley of North Carolina says when saw a line of law enforcement vehicles coming up her driveway earlier this month she didn’t know what to think. “I haven’t done anything wrong.”

According to WBTV, the Homeland Security agents were not there to take her away, they were looking for illegally imported Land Rover Defenders.

It was a task government officials were performing in several states in early July. Forums on contain posts from Defender owners claiming their vehicles were seized by the government.

    • Eric

      Not really since congress always acts under orders from their Zionist masters. At least we got the guns and aren’t completely surrounded.

      • Rodster

        Zionist Masters = global warming, climate change, climate weirding. It’s all of the above just with a Jewish theme. 🙂

      • Jacobson

        “Zionists” = Them and not us .
        I know it is hard to accept that your leaders are evil .
        Let’s call ’em Washingtonists ….

        • Joe

          No JACOBson, let’s NOT call them Washingtonists, let’s call them scumbag politicians, bought and paid for by the Jew Zionist, Federal Reserve families,,,aka the ‘cabal’!

          Jew Zionists OWN and control ALL aspects of American politics! Which is why their propaganda groups ( AIPAC, ADL, Southern Poverty Law Center ) send people like YOU to various internet sites to help break up discussion with mistruths and bold face lies!

          • Jacobson

  • Anon

    One can’t help but wonder if such bills are deliberately introduced not to be passed but instead a ploy to increase the $ale. The more they are hyped up the more people will rush to buy.
    There is probably a surplus stock to clear…and those bought into the fear will likely be useful idiots.

  • Wyostk

    “…and those bought into the fear will likely be useful idiots.”

    Or, still alive when you’re not.

    Hard to tell Anon, but we may find out just how idiotic armor owners are. Sooner rather than later. Hope Im wrong.

  • Eric

    America, WAKE UP!!!

    Your “government” has declared war on you. They don’t want you here. Either fight back or keel over and die now!

  • Marty

    Two things:

    1) People who make absurdly inflammatory statements, are usually trolling with a purpose. That is to disrupt discussion on “opponent” forums, thus giving their side an advantage. Some of these trolls are government, or corporate hires, some, on this blog are just the socialist’s useful idiots.
    An example of the best way to deal with them follows.
    Jacobson = Troll

    2) The term used is “military grade”. Is this term defined somewhere, or is it left up to the courts? If so, military grade is likely to be more than two layers of 1000 Denier, will be considered military grade.
    A rational person would assume that the only military grade body armor, is the stuff with ceramic plates, that are designed to shatter when hit with a rifle round, thus absorbing the energy of the round. The garments worn by civilian police, security guards, and some motorcylists are polyaramid(Kevlar is a trade name), and/or nylon, and absorb energy by stretching, and heating.

    A question come’s to mind. Since it is obvious that government can not protect us against the scary terrorists, based on prior performance, and since government claims terrorists, both foreign, and domestic are a serious threat to all Americans, shouldn’t government want us to protect ourselves against terrorists?
    Wouldn’t law abiding citizens clad in body armor, of any sort, be safer from terrorist attacks, and particularly if armed, be better able to stop the terrorists before innocent life is lost, or property is damaged? If congressman Honda is afraid body armor emboldens criminals, shouldn’t he be pushing to treat it like firearms are, and deny it to convicted felons, not men of good will? Will my child become a criminal, because he has a bullet proof day pack?

  • AK

    Am I understanding this correctly? This bill is supposed to prevent criminals who are about to commit mass murder or get into a shooting match with law enforcement from wearing body armor only because it would be illegal to do so??? Are these politicians for real???

    • megan

      My thought exactly. So this bill is bound to be rejected just for its absurdity. Like saying we should ban airbags because they might save terrorists during high-speed chase car accidents…So why are they introducing it? This is what everyone needs to question.
      I think Anon has a point. It boils down to money… Those that profit most will always try to instill fear on both sides – in this case, the government sheeple forces (of the people) and people (of their government). So far, they are succeeding.

  • Kevin

    No matter what the government does, 20% will not give up their guns – ever. Imagine how scary this same 20% is wearing body armor. Scares the crap out of this treasonous, warmongering administration.

  • knowtoomuch

    I don’t think Jacobson is a (paid) troll ; he just follows his treaterous jewish nature. Lie and deceit untill the end, never backing off.

    That’s ALL there is to it.

    I mean, why should we accuse a dog for barking ?

    Here you have another FIFTY or so Kosher Examples (at the bottom at the left / in blue writing ) , this time on the Holohoax / FAKE GAS CHAMBERS :

    • Jacobson

      The holy Torah is life .

      Dirty souls like yours are chasing my people thousands of years but this time it is different …
      I’m just waiting that your reality will look like in the Middle-E and then we’ll talk .

    “treacherous” I meant 😉

    After reading this story that was posted by SGT,

    I think we all have to start pushing for current and ex-military service men to start forming teams for the sake of educating the American population on what is really going on with all of these acquisitions of military equipment and gear being horded by their local police force.

    Having free seminars in the more metropolitan and semi-metropolitan areas around the country, would go a long way in waking many average people aren’t aware of any of the plans for martial law and full take over of America.

    Many of the granny, granpa, moms and pops who wouldn’t normally follow any of this and who also get most of their info from the MSM, would be the very same people who would attend such a seminar.

    It’s a win win situation and could very well get the ball to start rolling in waking up people on a local and state level, in large numbers.
