First off, it is a BS law they are attempting to pass. But, did you bother to actually read it before getting on your soap box? It only extends to "enhanced body armor". The definition of which is "body armor, including a helmet or shield, the ballistic resistance of which meets or exceeds
the ballistic performance of Type III armor, determined using National Institute of Justice Standard-0101.06.", e.g. Type III or Type IV body armor. Type IIIa, Type II, and Type IIa, and Type I would still be legal. Type III and Type IV stop rifle rounds, the rest stop varying power of handgun rounds. As I said, it's a BS law, and should not pass, but it is not banning "Basically any material deemed ballistic will be prohibited by us civilians".
