Why not? If I want to wear body armor I will do so. What are going to do next, ban crotch protectors? If I can't wear body armor then no one can, not even police and the armed forces. Besides what is the definition of body armor? Anything can stop a bullet. If I have a bible in my pocket and get shot in a robbery attempt by a thug and stop the bullit with my bible, are going to ban that next? I have a right to protect myself period. Body armor, gun, knife, screwdriver, or whatever. That's my opinion!
