U.S. Congress Proposes Law Banning Body Armor In The Land Of The Free


Congress Proposes Law Banning Body Armor In The Land Of The Free (Sovereign Man, Aug 21, 2014):

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.

People were rounded up and either murdered outright, or sent to infamous gulag labor camps.

Stalin is an extreme case. But history is ripe with examples of governments which disarm their citizens, only to engage in serious oppression afterwards.

Communist China. Nazi Germany. Cambodia. Guatemala. Uganda. The list goes on and on. Pacification of the citizens is almost always a prerequisite to totalitarianism.

There have been a lot of attempts to disarm, or at least partially disarm, people in the US throughout history as well.

Each time there’s a major shooting somewhere, the chant to ban firearms grows louder.

But the latest proposal is especially telling.

H.R. 5344 is a bill currently going through Congress that would ban the purchase of body armor.

Violation would carry CRIMINAL penalties, including up to ten years in prison.

Many bullet-resistant items on the market now, such as bulletproof backpacks for school children, would be banned by this legislation.

This is incredible given that the legislation is all about banning something that is purely defensive.

Whatever your stance on firearms, I hope we can agree that it’s pretty damn difficult to hurt another human being with body armor.

People buy body armor for protection. That’s the point. Duh.

So why in the world would they want to ban it?

The government claims that “criminals and rampaging madmen” can “wreak havoc” while wearing body armor, and it’s important to shield police from these nefarious individuals.

Uh, wait a sec– you mean the same police that go around terrorizing ordinary citizens who aren’t breaking any laws whatsoever?

The same police who beat homeless people to death?

The same police who shoot and kill innocent animals in broad daylight in the middle of the street?

The same police who scream “I will f***ing kill you!” with their weapons trained on crowds of protestors exercising their constitutional rights?

Right. Those guys.

This is such a disgusting, yet unfortunately predictable, turn of events in the Land of the Free.

It’s enraging. It’s infuriating. And it’s so obvious: the country has become a giant police state. And the trend is not getting any better.

It’s time to set aside emotion. It’s time to set aside a lifetime of propaganda and programming telling you that you live in a free country.

It’s time to look at the objective evidence all around you.

They spy. They steal. They wage illegal wars. They authorize military detention of civilians. They assassinate citizens.

They intimidate. They terrorize. They torture. They suspend due process when it suits. They destroy anyone who challenges them.

And now they want to take away a non-violent means of protecting yourself.

This is our reality. And at a minimum, it’s time for rational, thinking people to come up with a Plan B. What’s yours?

  1. So why bother? The FN 5×7 with depleted uranium will punch a hole through it anyway. A .50 cal round won’t care what end goes right through it. Thankfully none of them know anything about weapons.

    As you know, once a magazine is empty it is useless. Stuff you learn from the senate.

  2. Wonder who is against the body armor industry? It is a greedy gut deal….make such things very expensive on the black market. It won’t stop anything. These people are fools. I don’t personally remember much about Stalin…..he was an ally in WW2, so little was said about his atrocities until later.
    People are already vanishing……it is beginning. How I feel for the youth.
    There is a bigger problem…….Fukushima.
    I am already advising friends if they adopt animals, to pick ones three years old or better. Babies are born with problems, so many animals are dying young with cancer.
    Same with infant children, they are born with strange defects…….it is going to be a nightmare beyond any Hollywood horror movie.
    I wish people would not have children, at least here in the west. Were I not facing my own eminent demise, I would leave, and go to England. On the globe, that area is the safest from Fukushima. It will get there, some already has, but here in the west, we get blasts every day. I am glad my pets are older, and live inside. I use A/C year around, keep them from as much so-called fresh air that isn’t as I can.

    Fukushima will throw a huge monkey wrench into their fool plans. But, I was looking at some of the prophecies…….it was foretold there would be 111 Popes before the end of the world as we know it. Benedict is #111, and the other idiot is a fake PR guy…..Benedict is still Pope……someone I respected greatly brought that to my attention 20 years ago…….and now the worst Pope since the Borgia’s is the last. The diplomatic…..it happened once before in church history.
    Francis isn’t a pope in the true sense of the word. It was during the time of the Borgias, or directly afterwards because Pope Alexander Borgia took the church to such a low…..that a second “pope that isn’t” was appointed to redeem the church’s standing.
    Why our fool leaders are doing nothing about Fukushima is beyond me, Japan will not exist in a decade.
    We have no fresh sea shells, no fish, the Pacific, the biggest ocean in the world, proving 50% of the world’s oxygen, is dead.
    Dead sea creatures litter our once beautiful beaches. There are no services available to safely remove the radiated animals, and the vulture animals, so kindly provided by nature, won’t touch them.
    It is bigger than greedy gut serving senators can handle.
    So, folks, don’t worry too much, this is far bigger than any war…..
