What Is the Bill?
A new bill introduced to outlaw body armor in New York would make it illegal for civilians to purchase body armor and could find them guilty even if they have owned body armor for years. If the bill is passed, body armor owners would be required to turn in their life-saving gear at law enforcement agencies such as local or state police, FBI, or DEA. Failing to surrender their “body vests” within 15 days of the effective date of this new law could have severe repercussions.
What Is the Penalty?
Breaking this new law would result in a class A misdemeanor. Repeat offenders could potentially earn themselves a class E felony, and depending on their circumstances, the penalty could consist of fines, probation, and even up to 4 years in prison.
Free and lawful Americans must take notice of our country’s current state and the actions of radical legislators that wish to defund police organizations and attack the sanctity of the 2nd Amendment.
