Hmmm...  So kevlar armor killed these people?  Last time I looked, victims of 'shooters' were killed by bullets.

So, the following items should be outlawed for *everyone* because 'shooters' might take advantage of them:

* vaccines to protect shooters from flu, whooping cough, measles, etc.
* air bags to protect shooters from being injured in their getaway cars
* water filters to protect shooters from arsenic in their water bottles
* COVID19 fask masks to protect shooters from coming down with COVID19
* OSHA rules to protect shooters from workplace hazards
* FDA rules to protect shooters from bad drugs

How about we simply give the police/govt a remote 'kill switch' for every resident?  Then when some 'shooter' starts shooting, the police trigger the kill switch.

Problem solved.

Disallowing body armor is equivalent to handing the police a 'kill switch'.

Didn't the recent BLM protests tell you about what can go wrong when police have 'kill switches' aka 'deadly force' aka 'qualified immunity' ?
