NYT hit piece on armored vehicles. Every time some crazy putz commits a crime someone wants to ban something for everyone else.
Some Republican NY state senator wants to microchip all prisoners because of the 2 fugitives. Here's a relevant quote. I include this quote because it's got the body part they would like to put the chip in - for future reference.
Experts say the chips would be embedded in the neck, underneath six or seven layers of skin. So simply cutting it out without medical assistance would pose a significant health risk, Kramer reported.The NYCLU objected to the idea.
I would like to point out that you can fry such a chip with a capacitor of sufficient strength, used like a stun gun. One about the strength of one of those one-use camera flashes should do it. No cutting necessary,
I would also like to point out that one can armor one's own vehicles with steel or Kevlar, which if it became unavailable to individuals is also found in some industrial items like heavy-duty conveyor belts. If I remember right there was even something on Come and Make It about laminating your own bulletproof glass.
