saw this truck for sale, and noticed that the auction says that Canadians have banned armor! Is this true? If it is, the only reason I can think of is to limit power of the civilians. You cannot protect yourself lowly peasant!

Meanwhile, here in the U.S., bans on civilian ownership of body armor have also been proposed.

Protect yourself from what?

Although since Canada doesn't recognize a right to carry arms for self defense... I doubt they're too concerned about it...

P.S. When you say 'armor' the first thing I thought of, was a surplus tank... Not a truck with bullet-resistant glass...

The solution was to make it a sentence enhancement (use it in a crime, get 5 more years)...

I could see a similar law for up-armored vehicles, if they ever became popular as tools of crime either in real life or (more likely) on TV/movie screens....

So much law in that 'area' is driven by hollywood, not real life.

Any day now.

That's what the armor guy at the gun show has been telling me for the past decade.

1) I'm not advocating, I'm saying it's possible

2) Under the *US-style* law I'm talking about, unless you use the armor in a crime, you have done nothing illegal...
