Bulletproof vests proposed banned in Sweden

 
Bulletproof vests proposed banned in Sweden
Allan Widman, chairman of the Swedish parliamentary defense committee, demands that individuals are prohibited from wearing bulletproof vests to protect themselves from the increasing violence, which he believes will increase further without a ban, reports Sydsvenskan.

Widman has written a bill to the parliament in which he demands that it should be illegal and punishable for individuals to wear body armor - which is classified as military equipment - in the public place.

The reason for this is that many young criminals wear bulletproof vests, and Widman believes that that the protective vests contribute to escalate the level of violence in the Swedish society - and that a ban could lower it.

- I believe that the sense of personal security that wearing armor gives, helps to lower the threshold for the use of serious violence, he says.

Just a few weeks ago, a bulletproof vest probably saved the life of a 18-year-old in Malmö, and more people, not just criminals, buy and wear bulletproof vests in the increasingly tougher Swedish society, where bullets some times fly right beside hand grenades.

But now the Swedes better take cover and hope that they have very robust skin.
