Armour could probably stop most average hand gun rounds, and may slow the rifle rounds but modern guns are just to powerful, after all if it was a viable technology armour wouldn't have evolved to what we have today, which still lacks the ability (mostly) to stop the larger rounds. There are exceptions but that is true in all cases. Also full plate is heavy and damn neer impossible to manuver in. A lot of knights in full plate would become exausted after just a few hours, and they were also cooking in there in the heat (you wrap yourself in metal then go out in the sun, see how long you last)

True, and soon as you put on kevlar you're invincible?
Kevlar only works low powered weapons (not on AK-47s!!) and you would probably die from internal bleeding from the hit.
You need a ceramic plate to be fine, and once it shot it breaks, so you have one second chance only.
