Btw this is fascism. Just thought I would make that clear.
He was also charged with the illegal possession of four police batons.
Maybe he meant "Armageddon" as in a world wide crisis, chaos, looting, and revolutionary clashes. If he meant it in the religious respect, then I totally agree! The only true preparation for Armageddon is PRAYER!

According to several sources that were posted on a recent thread (I can dig them up if need be) it is legal to own bullet-proof vests but not to use them in the commission of a felony. Except I think for convicted felons, who can't own them.
I suspect that this guys troubles come from the "infernal devices", which I've just looked up in MA law. Basically it sounds to a non-lawyer like it covers any sort of explosive and people have been charged under that statute for things ranging from garbage bags filled with gasoline to a cigarette box packed with gunpowder (Source)

Gregory Girard says:
I have guns in .223, .308 and others. However, in any gunfight I'll using my bolt action 9.3x62, or my .458 Lott, both of themn with solid, non-lead bullets designed not to expand. With these guns, it doesn't matter much if the attackers are taking refuge behind 2ft diameter trees, corners of buildings, behind cars, or wearing hard "rifle plate" body armor. These things are reletively transparent to such "safari" type cartridges (within certain limits, such as over an inch of steel). Certain firepower is low in terms of rate of fire, but a single shot well placed shot at several running up a path, for instance, will make it possible to pass a broomstick through all three. In general, safari type rifles approach the awesome ballistics of a 50 Cal., but are light as any standard 30 Cal rifle like a .308. Unlike the 50 Cal, one can run, climb walls/fences/trees, and shoot them from any conceivable position. Personally, if it were me on attacking end and I somehow found out the person I was after had a safari rifle, I'd would consider the fact that I could never find safe cover too much of a risk to proceed.

That describes just about everybody I know! At least we live in the South, and this wouldn't be popular locally. Still, there are enough laws on the books to label just about anyone as a criminal, especially when they start arresting you for "intentions" or "preparations."
20 guns, 1000's of rounds of ammo, Tea Party, Mason, Survivalist....all those terms describe me and dozens of other folks in my town!
I am a little frightened.
Senior police officers dont expect criminals to apply for permits, but the new law allows officers to seize body armour as they now do with armoured vehicles and restricted weapons they find
Police, armoured car guards, prison staff, sheriffs, conservation officers, security guards and private investigators will be exempted from the permit requirement.
'Mass' Tipping Point? [View article] He's probably never been deaf, dumb and blind either, but that doesn't mean he wouldn't rather have his sight, hearing, and faculties of speech. But for the 2nd Amendment that keeps the gov't from moving on tyrannical impulses, unhindered liberal political dominance would result in the outcome it always has, and in the U.S. it would also transform this country into totalitarian police state, complete with purges of dissidents in death camps, all in no time flat. The world is replete with examples to prove this statement.
The full compliment of elements necessary to implement a nightmarish, brutal leftist regime is today, right now, prepared to let loose on the public on queue. Homeland Security plans thath list 2/3 of the populace as potential terrorists, the "continuity of gov't" legislation that has evolved since 1984 (ironically), a mountain of illegal executive orders that allow citizens who committed no crime to be sent to concentration camps and to confiscate any property for any reason, and over 800 concentration camps in the U.S., are all sitting on stand-by.
It would take next to nothing to unleash this horror. Do a bit of homework on my comments above, and you will be shocked that it is all true, and that I have not exaggerated this threat one bit. If you are like me, and others who became aware of this information, you will be forced to jettison the entire fantasy of a Constitutional Republic you grew up with. There is NOTHING Stalin did to the Russian people that our own gov't isn't physically and (falsely) legally prepared to do. It is only the millions of firearms in civilian hands that prevents the transformation that the left so passionately seeks. And with this cirmstance in mind, the feverish efforts on the left to disarm the public become manifestly clear in motivation.

Gold: The Glenn Beck Indicator [View article] Glen Beck is one of a handful of commentators that offer information and insight that stands up to serious intellectual scrutiny and fact-checking research. His message is often alarmist because the events he describes are truly alarming and need to be brought to the attention of the public. His conservative ideological bent impells him to to expose the lies and treachery of liberals who are agressively working to destroy the social fabric and economy of our country; naturally, the leftists among us are offended by Beck's efforts to show how they labor to diminish our freedoms, pervert critical moral traditions, and bankrupt our economy. Gold is unique in its ability to offer us freedom from the losses that we would otherwise suffer from our failing fiat currency. Leftist despise this freedom and the fact that those with their wealth in gold are generally out of the reach of efforts to confiscate wealth for the purpose of redistribution. To the leftist, gold owners are the ones that got away with their wealth intact, and who therefore cannot be enslaved or blackmailed by the usual gov't tools of wealth confiscation. So, not only does Beck defend our freedoms by calling out the ongoing efforts of the left to take them away, he pushes the services of gold vendors whose products defend our economic freedom. This is just too much to bear for the leftists who would rather we all unwittingly lose our political and economic by failing to oppose liberal policies and leaving our wealth in the form of dollars, which are much more convenient for the gov't to track, confiscate, and redistribute.
41' sloop (Tartan 4100) Because of the frequency of gale conditions this fall, north of Boston, I have come to rely on the Gale Sail as standard piece of equipment that I would not want to be without. Also, it is very inexpensive compared to many of the other solutions.
