Visiting the family next week. I use my PC and plates while doing pushups/planks/cardio and I'd love to bring it along.

Any issues bringing a PC (Agilite K5) and hard plates (Hesco 4xxx)?

Its legal in Northern NY (no clue about NYC.)

The new law passed just bans sale/ purchase of soft armor by civilian in NY, though I am sure they updated it to include plates by now.

I don't think there is anything banning possession of any armor unless it's used in the commission of a crime.  With that said I never researched the helmet thing.

The only law I am aware of is the new one that bans the sale of it in NY.  

Technically you can still go to another state, buy it, bring it back and its legal.

If you took possession and are in NY....

I wouldn't want to chance that in court.

Good thing I already own mine!  As long as I don't go committing a felony while wearing it, which as of sept 1 2022 could be very easy for a law-abiding gun owner to do, I think I will be fine!

Don't wear your shit while in a sensitive place effective sept 1 2022 and you won't be charged with dual felonies!

Maybe they should ban helmets and seat belts, too.
