Stand by for breaking news...

...on gravity holding shit down...

CHICAGO—This city’s police officers have been warned of the increasing use by gang members of rifles able to pierce police body armor, after a spate of shootings with assault-style weapons.
They've been warned? That virtually any rifle over .22 calibre will rip through a kevlar vest?

Apparently, Shibani Mahtani is unaware that ordinary police body armour is only designed to stop handgun calibre rounds... but let's not let that stop this "professional" journalist from making up scary stories.

And it's all the fault of those evil firearms, right?
CHICAGO -- Police said 10 people were shot in Chicago late Sunday afternoon, and two of them died, after suspected gang members opened fire on a group attending a memorial for another man killed earlier in the day.
Sweet baby jebus.

Now I learned something today! But then this makes we wonder why hand guns see more restrictions (outright ban over here) than rifles? Of course, a rifle is more obvious when carried around in public... assuming it still has its original form.

pretty much any rifle from .223 up, including any 30 calibre deer rifle will cut through kevlar like a hot knife through butter.

you need ceramic plates like soldiers or tac teams wear to stop rifle rounds.
