After talking about it for what seemed like decades, the people who run our northern suburb finally managed to get rid of their hated, hideously expensive long gun registry. Clearly not happy about a net increase in freedom in the Great White North, the Powers That Be scanned the terrain for an equal and opposite reduction in liberty for the average poutine-eating Canuck. Their regulatory radar beeped loudest when it came to their attention that just about anyone could buy body armor. Apparently, all that Kevlar openly available on the street’s posing an unacceptably high threat to, well, someone. And since gang members had occasionally been apprehended wearing body armor, the True North, strong and not so free, is gonna do its damnedest to make sure no one can protect themselves. Just remember, boys, when body armor is illegal, only criminals will have body armor.
