Hey all,

Trying to get some input on this body armor nonsense imposed on us recently.

Originally, the law barred soft body armor from being sold to NY'ers.
Then there was a change to include hard plates.
If you check out the NY governor's site, though, it says near the bottom that the new law provisions go into effect 9/1/22.
.

Checking a few sites that sell vests, plates, etc, they were shipping soft armor for a few days when the law was announced, before it was put into effect, but even showing them this site with the 9/1 date highlighted, they're saying that they won't ship the hard plates to NY either.

What's the deal here; have the body armor manufacturers lost their ability to read, or is it too complicated for them to sort out so they just gave up altogether?

Ebay will ship armor with hard plates to NY as the law does not take effect until September.
Nope, just looked into buying a couple plates and ebay stopped the checkout because the shipping address was in NY.

It's absolute stupidity that sellers are referencing this idiotic law without actually reading it.

Anyone have any success finding a supplier for ballistic plates?
Law clearly says 9/1 as the start date, legitimately surprised that more suppliers/manufacturers don't have the reading comprehension to understand that.
