Quote of the Day: A Common Sense Solution to Terrorist Methodology

“Why hasn’t anyone outlawed suicide vests?!?! You guys are missing an obvious one. Ban those suicide vests and you remove the terrorists’ favorite weapon. I don’t know why the EU hasn’t enacted common sense suicide vest control.” – TTAG commentator Rob C

    i would have at least worn a mask….

  2. avatar peirsonb says:

    When suicide vests are outlawed, only outlaws will have suici…..wait….

    1. avatar YaDaddy says:

      Don’t be shocked if you see that one on a bumper sticker in the Atlanta area.

    2. avatar BDub says:

      Only LEOs should have/use suicide-vests!

      1. avatar Stuki Moi says:

        I wouldn’t be so bad if Bloomberg’s private detail were allowed as well…..

  4. avatar Shire-man says:

    Oh great. Here come “sporting purposes” restrictions. Now I’ll have to take the shoulder thing that goes up off of my vest.

    1. avatar dh34 says:

      I’m a vest owner, and I believe in the right for all Americans to own explosive laden suicide vests, but..,

      1. avatar Joe R. says:

        But the projectiles can’t be those from .40 S&W.

        They’re too snappy.

        : D

  5. avatar Chris T from KY says:

    I had to pick myself of the floor laughing so hard this morning!! Thank you so very much! This one I will pass around!

  6. avatar Mk10108 says:

    humorous….my chuckle for the day.

    perhaps we should ask Ms. Harris if it’s on the CA approved list. Hopefully the builder can supply a few for drop & safety testing.

    1. avatar Joe R. says:

      Can’t find reloading supplies or load sheets listed anywhere.

      1. avatar peirsonb says:

        Too much effort to police (of the pieces of) the casing to make reloading worth the effort…

    2. avatar Removed_californian says:

      I would check calvests. I think they have a flow chart and the current list of “California safe” vests that you can select from.

  7. avatar Steve In MA (now RI) says:

    Is that pic from NFA Guns on facebook? It looks familiar.

    1. Like all our pics, hold your cursor over it and you’ll see the source. Click on it and you’ll go there.

  8. avatar 2AMexican says:

    Forget about even making it in that scary black color. It’s the militari-vestation of the citizenry I tell ya’!

  9. avatar dh34 says:

    Moms Demand Action for Commonsense Suicide Vest Laws.

    – universal background checks on all vest purchases…close the mosque loophole!

    – a ban on “assault vests” and high capacity pockets.

    – end open wearing of vests in public.

    – establish and enforce vest-free zones

    If only we could find a rich benefactor…

    1. avatar David R says:

      Lmfao “Mosque Loophole” I love it…

    2. avatar Kelly in GA says:

      Don’t forget the tactical suicide belt loophole. Smaller than your standard vest, but big enough that it doesn’t fall under hand grenade regs. They violate the spirit of the law!

    3. avatar Anonymoose says:

      But closing the mosque loophole would be racist!

  10. avatar ANdrew Lias says:

    “I’m Marty McFly. I want to talk to you about vest control. I used to be into vesting, but I’ve destroyed my vests now. This is due to repeated incidents. We must give up our freedom from the antiquated second amendment so we can be safe from these evil vests.”

  11. avatar RockOnHellChild says:

    #moms demand vest-sense in America

    1. avatar William Burke says:

      I’m waiting for the next suicide vest buyback to get rid of mine; my suicide bombing days are o’er.

      1. avatar george from fort worth says:

        wonder what the resale value of a used vest would be? is there some place one could be taken and restored to original condition? are there vestsmiths out there?

  12. avatar SpeleoFool says:

    Is that reflective tape? Good thinking. Wouldn’t want to accidentally get run over while out terroring after dark.

  13. avatar Gary McClenny says:

    Remember, it’s just a clock that I made myself for a science experiment.

  14. avatar uncommon_sense says:

    It’s about time someone start this effort … there is too much suicide vest violence in the world and someone has to do something about it.

  15. avatar Jason says:

    This wins post of the week in my view.

  16. avatar meandmealone says:

    God what a great idea. This is good stuff. We should get this message out there as much as possible. Of course it will nowhere, other than to further expose the hypocrisy of the gun grabbers. Still, a great idea.

  17. avatar Michael in K'zoo says:

    Also we need an extensive and universal background checks and waiting periods to reduce deaths from suicide.

  18. avatar actionphysicalman says:

    Rob – Was that a gift from your wife? Mine wants to know where to get them.

  19. avatar Bill says:

    If sucide vests are illegal, would that mean making one with sleeves that are at least 16″ long would make them fundamentally different and therefore unregulated?

    1. avatar PeterW says:

      Yes, but only if the cuffs are permanently attached. Screw-on cuffs are strictly prohibited, as are pockets that hold more than 10 bombs at a time.

  20. avatar Joe R. says:

    Rob C for President !

    : )

  21. avatar Fred says:

    Clearly what we need is a “smart vest”, with RFID fingerprint technology so only the registered owner can detonate it.

    1. avatar dh34 says:

      Once that technology becomes available, all vest stores in NJ will be required to offer at least one model for sale, unless of course the National Vest Association (Al Jazeera America) can block it.

  22. avatar Ron says:

    “Democrats fall all over one another rushing to demand new gun-control laws every time a criminal (usually a liberal) uses a gun to commit a crime. But what about suicide vests? Surely Democrats are concerned about the much greater potential for harm that these horrible devices pose? Yet, we’ve heard nary a peep from them about Suicide Vest Control.”

    This is the first paragraph of a petition I created on the far-left care2petitions website demanding that Democrats act immediately to ban Suicide Vests. Their refusal to even utter the words “Islamic terrorist” stands in stark contrast to their incessant attempts to treat law-abiding gun owners like criminals.

    If you agree, feel free to distribute the following link to the petition: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/312/175/268/urge-democrats-to-pass-suicide-vest-control-law/

  23. avatar James in Florida says:

    Have you received an invitation from the White House yet?

  24. avatar Keith44 says:

    Watch carefully, I’m only going to show you this once…

  25. avatar Fuque says:

    Vest control is dead in the water without a ban on soda cans..

    1. avatar NYC2AZ says:

      … and copper wire.

  26. avatar Tim says:

    That’s not a suicide vest. It’s obviously a clock. I can’t believe his school would call the cops on him for that.

  27. avatar notalima says:


    How could we have missed such great opportunity to do away with terrorism? Outlawing the vests…what a simple plan. I must write my representatives today.

  28. avatar Model 31 says:

    Does it come in full auto/burst or just the one trigger / one bang version?

    1. avatar Cliff H says:

      Pretty sure it falls under the “fire and forget” category.

      1. avatar Heathen says:

        I hear sometimes there’s a “remote” option for them in case you change your mind about using it.
        Someone will be around to “assist you “.

        1. avatar george from fort worth says:

          absolutely true.

          anybody notice the deranged suicide bombers are under the training and education of experts who never used one of those vests?

          how dumb do you gotta be?

  29. avatar derfel cadarn says:

    I am going to hope that this is tongue in cheek rather than head in ass, but I can see it going either way.

  30. avatar James in Florida says:

    Don’t they ever pick up on the fact that the guy ordering the suicide attacks……NEVER…….wears one himself…….mmmmmm…?
    Guess he’s not in a hurry to go to heaven huh?

    1. avatar Bob R says:

      Yes, exactly!!

  31. avatar Sam I Am says:

    Bravo ! Bravo ! Bravo !

  32. avatar Julio says:

    The concealed carry of such vests should also be banned. How do we know the intent of these terrorists? I have the right to feel absolutely safe everywhere I go. Only police and military are trained to carry, um use, umm…uh-oh. Look at this baby!

  33. avatar Julio says:

    I forgot all about Achmed the Terrorist. http://youtu.be/GBvfiCdk-jc

  34. avatar Gatorgrabber says:

    Do it for the children!

  35. avatar Ditto says:

    Common sense? We need to manufacture them and market them- heck, GIVE them to terrorists. Every terrorist should have a suicide belt. Then maybe they will all blow themselves up.

  36. avatar boardsnbikes says:

    Those evil black, fully automatic suicide vests should be outlawed. No one needs them. Just leave my hunting vest alone.

  37. avatar ChiDog says:

    I have that same Singer Tactical Sewing Machine in the same Desert Beige.
    It’s a keeper!
    Runs like butta under the most dire situations…

  38. avatar SurfGW says:

    There need to be very strict punishments for using a suicide vest! This will not be tolerated!!!!
    Oh… Wait……

    1. avatar ACP_arms says:

      Applause and cheering…

  39. avatar Former Water Walker says:

    Ummm…am I the only one who thinks showing your face with this is dumb? At least wear a cool mask. Look for this to show up in other places.

    1. avatar ACP_arms says:

      I think it’s likely a fake so he should be fine… but then the BATFE is looking to justify it’s existence.

      Watch out for a no-knock raid.

      1. avatar 2Asux says:

        Knowing how government works, he will be required to prove that at the time of the picture, there were no actual explosives in the vest (and pray a bomb dog doesn’t alert).

  40. avatar John McPherson says:

    Well, I say lets try is and see if gun controls laws really would work!! Snicker, snicker, snicker…

  41. avatar DaveC says:

    Look…you cannot ban all vests. What are us motorcyclists supposed to wear? And I also wear my vest sometimes when I CC instead OC. I know you are only talking about banning suicide vests. But that would only be the beginning. Then it would be crocheted vests, and denim vests, and where would it all end? All vests would have to be registered and controlled. This is a very touchy subject. Let’s be real here; it’s not vest that kill people, it’s people who kill people.

    1. avatar Timmy! says:

      No one wants to take your vest. If you like your vest, you can keep it.

    2. avatar JSJ says:

      If we ban vests the Terrorists will just switch to Leisure suits.

  42. avatar jn_texas says:

    Don’t forget them there 80% vests. Only bad people sow on their own pockets.

  43. avatar JJVP says:

    Anyone has the files to build one on a 3d printer?

    Do you need a license to carry one concealed? How about open carry?

  44. avatar tsbhoA.P.jr says:

    does this pipe bomb make my ass look big?

  45. avatar Steve Day says:

    Um, I don’t see any Velcro… Where are Operators supposed to put their blood-type patches?

  46. avatar Brian M says:

    I have an actually good idea: have armed responders ready just about everywhere. They can be security services, police officers, security contractors, armed citizens, but the point is the make sure that wherever and whenever they strike, that the ball of violence comes back to them at 900m/s as soon as possible.
