No more body armor for civilians?

This idea seems like banning locking doors because it’s harder for police to get through.

We might as well just rip up our constitution and apologize to the crown, maybe they will take us back. Seems we are heading that way anyhow.

I saw this one coming.
Take our guns and our armor. Wow!

I think it was @The_Shooting_Brit , but not sure that posted something about 60,000 flak jackets being sold over in the UK, I’m assuming because they were stripped of their firearms and now they have stabbings.
The Socialist party doesn’t want us to defend ourselves or be protected.

And as a whole we are doing nothing useful to prevent it.

I don’t even own body armor but that doesn’t change my opinion either

I own quite a lot and anything that is non-steel requires periodic replacement to be serviceable.
They pass this law and then brick wall in lefty cities and no one will see armor who doesn’t service the local democrat god kings purpose ever again.

What do you mean by this? I was thinking of possibly getting some sort of armor in the future. Do they degrade?

Perhaps because we can not agree on what is/or is not defending the 2nd Amendment.

Correct, wearing it accelerates the process but, in time the adhesives start to break down on Kevlar, Ceramics also. Different armor has different expiration dates. As a rule I sell off my Kevlar every 5 years and get new.

What would be a long term light weight SHTF option? Or would a person have to go with steel?

Steel is always the best long term option. Find a company that makes a VERY good anti-Spalling compound and see if you can get some extra for when yours starts to break down or is damaged on the plate armor.

I saw a video a long time ago about a girl who came up with a light weight option, perhaps the military used it under their vehicles, or their vests and i think it involved baking soda. I think it was baking soda. Anyway, it was supposed to be super light weight. Man I wish I can remember what video that was.

Well,
I can tell you what is NOT working.
1.) Patriots living in lands that have abandoned freedom.
2.) Patriots who are afraid of exercising their rights.
3.) Patriots who have abandoned their duty to their country in order.
4.) Patriots who will not band together to march and protest due to fear of loosing their jobs.

wheres the love?

personally I prefer the plastic plates, now they are thicker but do not require addition flotation panels (especially when around water)
Getting too old to be lugging around steel or composites now.

I’m not sure if this was the same stuff or not. Its non newtonian fluid. Anyway, I think there’s actually YT videos on some guys making armor like this. I wonder if the Left realizes how well they push sales on firearms and other related items. Perhaps, instead of Big Pharm or Big Oil, they have Big Gun in their pocket and this is all making them even richer.

Non-Newtonian fluids are neat but, require very specific temperature and viscosity control to maintain their usefulness. I would probably not put much value in them for a SHTF situation.
