In response to the ongoing discussion on gun rights, people are starting to ask: is it legal for civilians buy body armor? Is body armor legal in my state? Isn't body armor only for law enforcement? Why have I heard that body armor is illegal to own?
Body armor is 100% legal for civilians to own! It is your right to protect yourself in a defensive way.The TRUTH is that body armor is legal in ALL 50 STATES for law abiding citizens! What does that mean? As long as you have not been convicted of a felony, it is 100% legal for you to buy and posses body armor.
But aren't there companies that only sell body armor to law enforcement?
It is true that many companies require paperwork and employment by a law enforcement agency to purchase armor. However, the law enforcement restriction on body armor is a company policy and is not enforced by law. When shopping for body armor, look for a company that supports and encourages civilian self-defense like Safe Life Defense!
