I don't believe that statement is generally true, as it appears to be a
RIGHT, at least in the USA,

see for example https://bulletsafe.com/pages/bulletproof-vest-faq which if
you scroll down states this:


     Who can buy a bulletproof vest? 

     As a resident of the US, you have the right to buy and own a
bulletproof vest. 

     The only people who cannot own a bulletproof vest are those people who
have been convicted of a violent felony. 

     If you have been convicted of a violent felony you have forfeited the
right to own body armor.


That web page further says they can ship directly to 49 states, and the only
exception is Connecticut, which requires face-to-face transaction thru a
local dealer.
