Should Body Armor Be Available to People Outside Law Enforcement?
August 5, 2019
Connor Betts was dressed in what appeared to be tactical gear when he opened fire in Dayton, Ohio. In surveillance video released by police, the 24-year-old can be seen wearing a bulletproof vest, a mask and ear protection. Shockingly, body armor like that is readily available to anyone online. Bulletproof vests can go for $185, ear protection is as low as $20 and a mask can be purchased for just $10. Despite wearing all that body armor, Dayton cops brought Betts down in under 30 seconds.
