I do believe that this is a part of a larger agenda to make people victims and more reliant on the “State” and its “Services”. To prove this I’m going to take inspiration from Lori herself and wear a Bullet Proof Vest everyday if AB 1934 passes and becomes law. Donning a vest intended to prevent punctures to my body is the ultimate in passive self-protection, it posses no threat to others around me, it can’t be loaded, it can’t be made into a weapon, it’s safe. And apparently Lori doesn’t see a problem with wearing one… but she will.
I declare here on this 22nd day of April 2010 that in an open carry/concealed carry banned California, legislators (maybe even Lori herself) will attempt to ban the Bullet Proof Vest Movement in California. Thousands of Californians will wear bullet proof vest to work, while shopping, at the grocery store, while picking up the kids from school, at the bank, at Starbucks, etc. After a year of activity by this movement and its members, lawmakers will site public unrest and police safety as the key reasons for banning the open display of bullet proof vests.
They’ll be quoted in newspaper and on TV. “I just don’t feel safe when I see someone walking around with a bullet proof vest on, this isn’t the wild west” one women says. Police Chief Snuffy says, ”Look, when my officers come onto a scene and they see a guy wearing a SWAT Team quality vest. They don’t know what he’s up to and Officer Safety is paramount” adding, “Furtive movements by a vest wearer could end in tragedy”.
Please join me in getting this non-aggressive, peaceful activity outlawed!
