We petition the Obama Administration to:

Stop H.R. 5344 from banning responsible law abiding citizens from owning body armor.

Preserve our right to own, possess, and transport body armor as a law abiding citizen of the United States. Stop H.R. 5344 from stripping citizens of our freedom and ability to defend ourselves and our families. Protect our freedom to purchase and own body armor, regardless of the protection level.

There’s like a constitutional right to own body armor? I didn’t know that.

Keeping your growing kids in body armor that fits would be pretty darn expensive. Maybe health insurance would be a better investment. Just a suggestion.
