[Ed. – Legislating from the spleen]
… Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) has announced he will introduce legislation to require body armor sales in this country to be regulated by the FBI.
Schumer, who has supported all manner of gun control legislation during his time on Capitol Hill as both a House member and member of the Senate, said his bill will be introduced in September. …
The man who opened fire recently in Dayton, Ohio was wearing body armor … and the shooter who died at the Gilroy, Calif., Garlic Festival had body armor at his home, authorities discovered.
According to the Washington Times story, Schumer will include exceptions for law enforcement and “other public safety professionals.”
Schumer’s body armor scheme is already stirring considerable discussion on social media, where one person commented, “So, let me get this straight. A bunch of people got shot, so this … weasel wants to restrict clothing made to keep people safe from being shot.”
