The materials used to create the Level IIIA and the Level III options are different. The Level III armors are made of hard material. The hard body armor that is used to make the Level III body armor can be used on the outside of the softer options to provide maximum protection. The level IIIA body armor will provide protection from many small arms weapons.The 9 mm, 44 magnums, and just about any other handgun will not be able to cause serious injury to someone that is shot in the chest while wearing one of these types of body armor. When the armor is used in conjunction with other protective panels, maximum protection is provided. Both the Level II and Level IIIA body armors will provide ample protection when needed most. You need to be sure that you take the time to choose a carrier that fits you properly.
Both types of body armor can be worn on the exterior or the interior of your clothing. You need to get the right type of carrier for however you plan to wear the body armor though. A bulletproof vest, or ballistics vest, is worn over the torso to protect the body from small-arms fire and light shrapnel from explosive devices. Most bulletproof vests consist of many layers of fine, tightly woven fabric (usually Kevlar) that softens and absorbs the impact from high-speed projectiles. Some vests come with either ceramic or metallic plates that are meant to protect the body from rifle fire or larger projectiles.These vests are often worn by the military, law enforcement officials, and hostage negotiators in situations where a suspect may have a firearm or other destructive device. Private citizens, such as hunters, gun store owners, and convenience store clerks, also use them. And so do criminals, hence this article.
The effectiveness of body armor is unquestionedstudies have shown that it dramatically decreases the wearers chances of death. It is precisely the effectiveness of body armor that has led lawmakers to regulate it so that criminals do not get the protection it provides. Under federal law, a bulletproof vest is considered body armor, which is regulated by statute, 18 U.
That law forbids anyone convicted of a violent felony to own or possess a vest unless the person wearing the vest is an employee who is doing so in order to perform a lawful business activity and who has obtained prior written certification from the employer. A violation incurs a maximum of three years in prison. And using a vest during the commission of a federal crime of violence or a federal drug-trafficking crime will result in an enhanced sentence.
The federal law has been challenged on several grounds, all of them unsuccessfully. The Constitution gives Congress the ability to regulate interstate commerce under the Commerce Clause, which has been cited as underpinning the body armor statute.
Defendants have argued that no interstate commerce was involved in the possession or use of the vest. Note that homemade body armor that stayed in one state would not fall within the federal laws provision. A law must be clear in order for it to be understood, and if its not, its a violation of the constitutional guarantee of due process. The federal law has withstood such challenges, but in at least one state, California, the challenge was successful (the state subsequently tightened-up its statute).Some have argued that regulating body armor violates a persons right to bear arms. This argument has not succeeded, either. The item "NIJ IIIA Bulletproof Vest Tested and Affordable" is in sale since Monday, May 4, 2020.
