Good to know: Body Armor Laws in the United States
We all have a right to protect ourselves and our families. As such, we have a legal right to acquire and wear body armor for professional and personal protection. In turn, it is also legal to sell body armor to anyone in the United States.
It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ascertain whether or not they are legally able to use and purchase body armor. This responsibility does not fall on the shoulders of Defender Depot, LLC.
It is legal and perfectly safe for defenderdepot.com to sell body armor to the general public. People who purchase body armor and other types of body protection are upstanding citizens who simply wish to protect themselves, their employees and their families from harm.
Convicted felons surrender their right to own body armor. The US has a federal ban on the possession of body armor by convicted felons (18 U.S.C. 931). Felons can only purchase bulletproof vests if their employer requires it and they get written permission to do so. Still, it is the responsibility of the felon to refrain from buying body armor. If he makes an illegal purchase, only he can be prosecuted. Retailers are not liable for what happens to body armor after it is sold.
