Arrested for the possession of body armor? Isn't it odd that the bill of rights guarantees us the right to bear arms for self defense, but the state has made wearing something to protect yourself from bullets a crime?

Convicted Felons aren't allowed to possess body armor unless under special circumstances... thats what i found under several articles anyways.

I guess convicted felons are more bullet proof that the average citizen.

I think the issue is that body armor on a criminal is more likely to be used along with a weapon. Which means it'd be harder to take them down in the case the police ever had to subdue him with force.

The "gentleman arrested in Ct. is a convicted fellon of the worst type---a "SKINNER."

For those that do not know that jargon,this means a child/sex offender.

He is also a dead beat dad--non child support

fellow.

I`m amazed that any "outlaw" gang would be

such sissy boyz as to have a SKINNER among them.

They probably sit around and all watch kiddy porn.How you spell PUNKS ?

Default Re: POLISHING THE IMAGE OF MOTORCYCLISTS EVERYWHERE

I'm glad to see that MO is doing its best to highlight the activities of the Hell's Angels and Outlaws, given how representative these groups are of the motorcycling community in general.



MO continues to do its part to expose the general public to the violent criminal activity that is the heart and soul of motorcycling.



Thanks, MO.

Two guys took down a bank in (I think) downtown LA. They had body armor and assault rifles. The cops tried to stop them but they shot the sh*t out of the cops. The cops eventually got some assault rifles from a local gun store and managed to take them down.



Ever since then body armor is considered the same as firearms and explosives. Cops get very weary when you have body armor Â…

The bad guys had full auto Kalashnikov rifles. As for body armor any high powered rifle will put a hole right through it. It was the fault of the L.A. police brass that the officers werenÂ’t properly armed for such an eventuality. The whole point of the second amendment was to keep the people armed with whatever was necessary to pose a counter-weight to the power of government. Outlawing body armor for citizens places them at a disadvantage compared to government troops.

They have tactical armor now that will stop a .30-06 150 gr. softpoint bullet.

I've seen the new ceramic plate stuff. Guess we'll just have to keep some FMJ around for emergencies.
