Ban on Body Armour Overturned in California

Following a dramatic shootout between police and 2 heavily armed suspects wearing body armor in North Hollywood in 1997 the California State Legislature passed a law banning violent felons from owning body amour.  Last week the California Court of appeal overturned the law citing issues with how the term body amour is defined in the legislation.  The Los Angles Police Protective League the union representing LAPD officers will be asking the state attorney general  to file an appeal before the California Supreme Court.
